The Marquees that Waveney & Blyth Arts owned have been sold and are no longer available for hire.
We are grateful to South Norfolk Council for their Community Action Fund grant to purchase these three years ago. They have been useful to W&BA and to various hirers, and generated income, but the challenge of finding suitable storage, managing hirings and finding suitable teams to deliver, erect and dismantle were considerable. We are pleased to say that they will have a new life at FolkEast in future.
Williams Tour Guide System to hire
The system enables people who are hard of hearing to listen to a person speaking using a personal set of headphones, complete with a volume control. Alternatively, people with hearing aids that are fitted with a telephone coil can use a neck-loop rather than headphones, which magnifies the volume of sound transmitted by their hearing aid.
To operate the system, the person speaking must talk into a microphone fitted in a headset. The microphone is connected to a small transmitter pack which can be attached to their belt, trouser pocket or similar. Each person wishing to listen using the system will need to wear headphones or a neck-loop which are connected to a small receiver, again fitted with a belt clip.
The system works both indoors and outdoors. The system includes a triangle-shaped microphone which can be used to transmit a discussion rather than an individual speaker. It should be used instead of the headset microphone, plugged into the transmitter, and placed in the centre of the group. Those listening to the discussion will need to use receivers in the usual way.
- 1 transmitter (marked with a T plus a ‘transmitting’ microphone symbol)
- 9 receivers (the top side has an on-off switch and a headphone socket)
- 1 AC/DC adapter (charger) with 10 charging leads to charge up receivers
- 1 headset with microphone for walk leader to use
- 1 triangular microphone for use in meetings or workshops
- 5 sets of headphones for anyone who might find amplification useful
- 4 neck-loops for hearing aid users
- 1 instruction manual
