Pupils explore their next steps at careers fair Hundreds of pupils from schools across Blackpool attended a twoday careers fair held at the Pleasure Beach last week. Students were able to pick up information from a broad range of industry areas, including the next steps they would need to take after their studies.

of the Pleasure Beach, the students were able to get hands on experience from many of the different industry sectors.

Organised by Blackpool Community Guidance, the year 8 and 9 pupils also had access to training providers, and representatives from colleges, universities and professional bodies to discuss their different career options. Exhibitors included Blackpool Pleasure Beach, British Aerospace, Marine Engineering, Sainsbury’s, Lancaster University and Teacher Training.

Jodie, 12, from Highfield Leadership Academy, said: “It is worthwhile being here as it can help you to pick your career. There’s lots of different stands and the people are really helpful. I think that I want to be a detective within the police but I am open to other things.”

The annual ‘Our Future, Our Choice’ event aims to ensure that young people understand the link between success in school and their future career. Sponsored by the Blackpool Opportunity Area, Blackpool Sixth Form, Blackpool and The Fylde College and Education Business Partnership (NW), the guidance event is now in its twelfth year of helping students understand more about their career options and what they need to achieve their goals. David Brennand, who helped to organise the event, said: “This event is designed to inspire and aspire young people and help them make positive decisions about their futures. “It is a great way to make the link between the curriculum and the careers for the future and to give so many pupils a chance to talk to inspiring industry experts which will help them prepare for their next steps. “I would like to thank all the businesses and sponsors for getting involved and hope that this event can continue for many years to come.” With access to interactive stations across three floors

Millie, also 12 from Highfield, said: “I am into hairdressing and this is what I’d like to do in the future. I went to the hair and beauty stand and was able to practice on a doll’s head.” Robert Owen, Director of Marketing, Sales and PR at the Pleasure Beach, said: “We are very proud to have hosted this event for so many years. It’s great that we can use our venue to help local year 8 and 9 students start to think about their career options.” Cllr Kath Benson, Blackpool Council Cabinet Member for Schools, Education and Aspiration, said: “This inspiring event provides a fantastic opportunity for the young people in our community to access high quality careers information, advice and guidance, as they start thinking about their futures. “There are a huge range of opportunities available to them, and it’s essential that we continue to help them aspire to dream big and then work with them to help them reach their goals. “Events like these give young people in Blackpool a chance to learn about employers, higher education and apprenticeships, and businesses within the local area and to make informed decisions about their future careers.”

RED HOT CHILLI PIPERS

April & May 2020 UK Tour comes to BLACKPOOL Grand Theatre on Saturday 26th April!

T

here has never been anything quite like The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, from their formation in 2002 and a cameo appearance at T in the Park in 2004 with the Darkness to opening the main stage in their own right in 2014. The past fifteen years has seen the Red Hot Chilli Pipers become the most famous bagpipe band on the planet… ever! Bagpipes with attitude, drums with a Scottish accent and a show that carries its own health warning.

The band’s achievements have reached incredible heights with their groundbreaking fusion of traditional Scottish music and rock/pop Anthems which they proudly call “Bagrock”. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are a genuinely unique experience. The Chillis have never been more in demand for their infectious style of feel good music which appeals right across the age range to people all over the world. They have collected together an impressive

group of musicians, dancers and singers from Scotland and further afield, many holding World Championship titles and all seriously good players with impressive credentials and qualifications. In 2014, The Chilli Pipers released a new live DVD and CD entitled `Live at the Lake`. In an explosive evening of entertainment captured on this live DVD and CD, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers recorded their most adventurous project to date, bringing 16 musicians and dancers across the Atlantic to perform at Milwaukee Irish Fest, the US spiritual home of the band. They captured the unique and explosive power of the Chilli Pipers in one unforgettable evening by the shores of Lake Michigan. Tracks include Insomnia, Gimme All Your Lovin', Thunderstruck, Everybody Dance Now, Amazing Grace, Fix You, Chasing Cars, Wake Me Up, Don’t Stop Believin and We Will Rock You. In February 2019, the Pipers and Tom Walker released a new version of his massive hit “Leave a Light On”. The release is in aid of Nordoff Robins, the music therapy charity and it went straight into

the iTunes top five. The collaboration came about after Tom performed with the Red Hot Chilli Pipers at Murrayfield Rugby Stadium before the Scotland v Italy Six Nations match. In June 2019, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers released a new studio album, entitled "Fresh Air”. An exciting fusion of brand-new songs and carefully selected covers. In a new departure for the Red Hot Chilli Pipers many of the songs include lead vocals. Some of the highlights are “Leave the Light On” featuring Tom Walker on vocals. Leonard Cohen´s “Hallalujah” and “Shut Up and Dance” from the American band Walk the Moon, both songs feature the incredibly talented singer Chris Judge on vocals. Some facts and figures about the Red Hot Chilli Pipers: Gold disc for over 100,000 UK sales of their first album - `Backrock to the Masses‘. To date, The Red Hot Chilli Piper have performed live to over 1 million people. Triple platinum status for the album and DVD - `Blast Live`.

Awarded twice for `Best Live Act in Scotland`. Over 4.5 million views on YouTube of their viral cover of the Avici track `Wake me up`. Sell out gigs and tours in USA, China, Australia, Germany, Switzerland and Australia. Winner of the BBC TV prime time talent show `When Will I be Famous` hosted by Graham Norton.
