Hi I’m Pete a 3rd Year Trombone player and I want to be your next Performing Arts Officer. I want to take PA from strength to strength, secure more funding and help societies so they can perform to their best. Previous experience as Treasurer of the Jazz Orchestra and Social Secretary of the Brass Band as well as playing for multiple orchestras and theatrical productions.

I promise to work with the union to:

  • Make more rehearsal spaces available to Performing Arts, ideally 1 extra each for Dance, Music and Theatre.
  • Get more storage space for Performing Arts both on Campus and in the PA house.
  • Create more space on campus to advertise Performing Arts concerts, shows and events. Including a new noticeboard for large posters and cheaper digital billboard ads in the union
  • Increase funding for tours and competitions so societies can perform far and wide
  • Create a simple, easy to use equipment sharing scheme between all PA societies, so everyone has the tools they need to perform without worrying about clashes or expensive equipment rentals
  • Bring back the PA inter-society Quiz from 2016, it's a cheeky bit of fun and a great chance to meet people from all over Performing Arts
