Past pupil secures grant for live jazz show

A group of Edge Hill University Film and TV students, including one of our past pupils Connor Richmond, secured a prestigious grant from Liverpool Jazz to create their own live television show.

Eight to the Bar, a jazz roadshow, filmed in front of a live TV audience in a similar style to Later…with Jools Holland, and The Old Grey Whistle Test, was originally devised by Film and TV students as part of their module coursework, before attracting the attention of Executive Directors of Liverpool Jazz, Michael Swerdlow and Victor Greenberg.

The local organisation agreed to sponsor the group of enterprising students to make the TV show after hearing about their proposal, and will use individual clips from the final cut to promote jazz in the North West.

Connor Richmond, now a 3rd year Film and TV student and Director of Eight to the Bar said: “We’re delighted that Liverpool Jazz agreed to sponsor our full production, allowing us to cover the costs of professional touring performers, bands, actors, set design and even the hiring of a Grand Piano. We had to fight for the sponsorship and bargain with the CEOs from Liverpool Jazz which was a fantastic experience in how the television industry works.”

Another International Appearance for Ian

Year 11 pupil Ian Maxwell donned the green jersey of Northern Ireland again on Saturday in the Northern Ireland Schools’ FA Under 15 Invitation International against Estonia.

The match, played at Knockbreda, ended in a comfortable 3-1 victory for the local boys. This gave them back-to-back wins over their Baltic visitors, having beaten them 4-0 on Thursday evening at Comber.

Ian, who plays as a central defender, played a pivotal role scoring from set pieces in both matches.

Head Coach, David Healy (Northern Ireland’s all-time leading goal-scorer), is clearly well satisfied with the development of the Dungiven lad, not to mention his goal-scoring prowess.

Next up for the Northern Irish boys is a trip to Slovakia at the end of this month.

The school wishes Ian every success not only for that trip but also for the future.
