​Sennheiser

At Sennheiser, we pride ourselves in supporting education, strongly believing we must invest in the future of those who want to enter our industry. By helping to support and develop our future sound engineers, music producers and musicians, we know the future will be brighter.

For the past 19 years, Sennheiser has sponsored the best performing arts school in the world, The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA).

During our association, Sennheiser has developed and supported some of the best students in Live Sound Engineering, Music Production and Live Performance to come out of the institute. The Sennheiser scholarship means the student chosen has the financial burden of education eased by our brand support, expertise and resources, which in turn helps them to achieve their full potential.

We want to continue to be part of the future. This means continuing to be part of the learning that our industry will need. The quality of education at LIPA is second to none and when we assist its budding sound engineers, music producers and musicians, we know we are contributing to an informed future.


SSE Audio Group and Wigwam

SSE Audio Group supplies audio services to the live events industry. The Group includes SSE Hire and Wigwam Hire, two of the leading audio rental houses in the UK with a client list that includes Coldplay, One Direction, Arctic Monkeys, Bastille, Stone Roses and virtually all the major UK festivals.

Established in 1976, SSE Audio has seen sound reinforcement develop from a fledgling cottage industry to the highly professional and complex business it is today.

As systems have become increasingly complex, the requirement for skilled, trained personnel to work within this industry has become ever more important and SSE Audio and Wigwam recognise their role in developing the next generation of audio professionals.

From April 2017, SSE Hire and Wigwam Hire are entering into a partnership with LIPA bringing Technology students opportunities for work experience and long term employment in the live audio sector. Second year students are offered work experience over the summer vacation. The Group also offers year-long paid internships to selected year-three graduates, one based at Wigwam in Heywood, one at SSE Audio in Redditch.
