Travel and tourism students at West Nottinghamshire College have fulfilled their last assignment with plenty of sparkle and spotlight.
The BTEC Level 3 Diploma year one group hosted an entertainment show for fellow colleagues and tutors on Tuesday 14 May which has been five months in the making and more than proved their top skills in events management.
Held in the college’s Refined fine dining restaurant, the stage was set and all hand-made props were set up to entertain fellow students with shows based on TV favourites such as Family Fortunes, The Chase, Copy Cat, Mr and Mrs, The Cube and I’m a Celebrity.
Games included guessing the item in the mystery box, seeing contestants dipping their hands into eggs in custard, fake hair, plastic insects in cold beans and fake teeth in jelly.
Students organised a ‘bush tucker’ eating challenge which had crickets, worms and vile Jelly Belly beans on the menu. The messiest game saw students bobbing for bugs in jelly filled bowls.
Throughout the event guests could take part in a guess the number of sweets in the jar game and a prize raffle which made £37 For their chosen charity, Sheffield-based Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Travel and tourism programme area leader Claire Craig said: “When I first set the event management assignment last year, a lot of the group were quite apprehensive and didn’t feel very confident at all.
“However, over the last few months, they’ve worked amazingly as a group, coming up with a very creative concept for an entertainment show and have shown me their planning and organisational skills are exceptional. I’ve felt proud to watch their confidence soar and seen the success of a very well-managed show.”
