7. Tell Us the Funniest Story You’ve Experienced During Your Time at Gallowglass?
So many to tell, where do you begin. Working on SPOTY in Belfast, a crew manager from the Belfast crew came in and put salad dressing on his dessert/cake instead of custard. We watched him do it, not knowing if he knew what he was doing, but couldn’t say anything because this moment was going to be golden.
He looked up after his first bite and said, “this custard is a wee bit tangy” in a northern Irish accent. We fell over laughing because we could see the look on his face as he tried to work out what was going on, but he still managed to finish it in the end.
8. What Advice Would You Give to Those Aspiring to A Career in Events?
You have to make sacrifices. When you’re young and bold, this is your cup of tea. If you’ve just started, make sure you want to do it and do it 100%. Be flexible, be ready to go at any moment; there’s a lot of stops and starts but be patient. Gain any experience you can; it will give you a great platform to potentially move onto bigger things like rigging and site managing, for example.
