Thanks to Robe Lighting, Rose Bruford College students from BA (Hons) Creative Lighting Control and BA (Hons) Lighting Design programmes had the unique opportunity to work at the prestigious Total Production International (TPi) Awards.

The students joined other students from colleges around the UK to form part of the Next Robe Generation (NRG) initiative, which provides opportunities for the next generation of lighting designers, technicians and operators to meet and socialise in informal settings with current industry professionals and lighting practitioners.

Staged on Monday 24 February 2020 at the Evolution venue in Battersea, the TPi Awards honoured some of the best creative and technical achievements in the world of live entertainment for the preceding 12 months.

The event also gave the students the opportunity to work with BA (Hons) Lighting Design graduate Jordan Tinniswood, who now works for Robe following his participation in the NRG programme in 2018.
