Rigging Training Winter School at The Federation of Scottish Theatres

Rigging Training Winter School

The Rigging Training Winter School for the Federation of Scottish Theatres’ is held annually at Pitlochry Festival Theatre. A beautiful riverside setting and a lovely little theatre well suited to delivering our 2 and 3 day rigging courses.This February was our second visit to Pitlochry and one that we hope will be a regular date in the Total Training calendar.

This year we had 6 trainees and a couple of the senior house technicians as observers. The training followed our standard 2 day rigging awareness course covering the marking out, preparation and rigging of chain hoists to support a small truss grid itself carrying further hoists. The rigging equipment was again kindly provided by FST’s training partners, Black Light.
