Dome on Flickr.
Spent an hour looking around the Dome in Brighton. It really took me back, because I worked there when I was 16. After months of working at a sound and lighting shop called MBI, I got to know the guys who looked after the tech stuff at the Dome. My boss was called Fraser Disney, which felt like the perfect name for someone working in showbiz. I had various roles, including replacing lightbulbs high up in the rooftops, setting up pyrotechnics and my favourite, follow spot, tracking actors on the stage with a heavy and very hot light. At the time, it felt like I was being paid to play, it felt like I was being paid to do the stuff I’d been doing at school for the past few years. I probably would have done it for free.
