What We Do

Backstage is a student group who provide technical expertise for a wide range of events. We help with live events like Freshers' Week, theatre performances, club nights, band nights & more. We work closely with other arts sociteies and the SU to support events both on- and off-campus. Providing lighting, sound, set design, pyrotechnics, stage management and event management expertise.

Reasons to Join Us


All of the big events (and most of the smaller events) are crewed by members of Backstage -  The experience that is Freshers' Week, Summer Ball, plays by Bath University Student Theatre (BUST), musicals by Bath University Student Musical Society (BUSMS), and many, many more. Members can get involved with:
  • Designing and programming lighting for theatre and live shows
  • Designing and building stage sets for musicals and plays
  • Stage Manage performances by both students and professionals
  • Mix sound for Big Band, musicals, and shows
  • Technical Event Manage for some of the largest events on campus


Throughout the year Backstage run training on a wide range of subjects, from basic to advanced level. Our training is open (and free) to all members. Sessions have included Stage Management, Sound Engineering, Lighting Design, and Pyrotechnics


In addition to the fun we have on events, we also have regular society socials organised by our social secretary. Events range for pub tours, theatre trips, and joint socials with other societies!
