    This free guide aims to help educators better understand and explain the basic elements of stage lighting. It is intended to supplement existing teaching materials, providing additional information and relevant product examples to add colour to lessons and presentations, helping to inspire and engage students. The guide covers basic illumination techniques and provides a pathway towards more artistic lighting designs.

    Sections include:

    • Controllable properties of light
    • What equipment do we use to light the stage?
    • Behind the scenes – what makes a lighting system work?

    The content can be applied to a variety of venues, including school halls, drama studios, college and university venues, village halls, arts centres and student television studios.
