College art students create set for Pink Floyd rock musical in Tamworth
Art and Design students from Tamworth and Lichfield campuses of South Staffordshire College have played an integral role in the set design for the Fired up theatre production of Pink Floyd's famous musical performance, 'The Wall'.
A giant teacher puppet for the performance and a mock wall for the set were created by students from a variety of courses at the college.
'The Wall' is based in a fictitious Midlands town and deals with issues such as youth unemployment, social deprivation and poverty.
Student Charlotte Mawdsley (20) said: "The production was amazing! I loved seeing my work in the show and it was a great opportunity to be involved in a local arts project."
