Walsall College Travel and Tourism students will be raising money for Comic Relief as part of the Entertainment unit on their course.
PJ, a top UK children’s entertainer recently visited the college to give the Level 3 students some inside industry tricks before they were tasked with planning and delivering their own entertainment activities.
Travel and Tourism Lecturer at Walsall College, Gina Turner, said: “Hearing first hand from someone currently working in the industry was very valuable to the students’ research. It has given them a greater understanding of the sector and a lot of inspiration for this task to plan their own entertainment activities.
“The students have been working in groups to organise their own events and one group decided to tie their event in with Red Nose Day.
The students’ event will take place on Thursday 23rd March, a day before Red Nose Day, at the college’s Wisemore Campus. They have organised a range of different red themed games, including a lucky dip and Bean Boozled Pong, which involves throwing balls in buckets. They have also arranged prizes for the winners of the games.
Other events students have planned include a jungle animal themed party and a teddy bears’ picnic for children at the college’s Little Professors Nursery.
Students will be assessed on their planning, preparation and delivery of the events and if they have made an outstanding individual contribution.
