Students host TV-style gameshows for end-of-term

Travel and tourism students at West Nottinghamshire College have fulfilled their last assignment with plenty of sparkle and spotlight.

  • Travel and tourism students worked hard to organise and perform their end-of-year show
  • A prize raffle to raise money for charity
  • Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice was the students' chosen charity
  • Another fundraiser game
  • Jess Darwood-Brown and Jess Vick were the sparkling comperes
  • There were gooey surprises in the mystery boxes
  • A different take on bobbing for apples
  • Student teams got stuck in to messy fun

The BTEC Level 3 Diploma year one group hosted an entertainment show for fellow colleagues and tutors on Tuesday (14 May) which has been five months in the making and more than proved their top skills in events management.

Held in the college’s Refined fine dining restaurant, the stage was set and all hand-made props were set up to entertain fellow students with shows based on TV favourites such as Family Fortunes, The Chase, Copy Cat, Mr and Mrs, The Cube and I’m a Celebrity.

Games included guessing the item in the mystery box, seeing contestants dipping their hands into eggs in custard, fake hair, plastic insects in cold beans and fake teeth in jelly.

Students organised a ‘bush tucker’ eating challenge which had crickets, worms and vile Jelly Belly beans on the menu. The messiest game saw students bobbing for bugs in jelly filled bowls.

Throughout the event guests could take part in a guess the number of sweets in the jar game and a prize raffle which made £37 For their chosen charity, Sheffield-based Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Travel and tourism programme area leader Claire Craig said: “When I first set the event management assignment last year, a lot of the group were quite apprehensive and didn’t feel very confident at all.

“However, over the last few months, they’ve worked amazingly as a group, coming up with a very creative concept for an entertainment show and have shown me their planning and organisational skills are exceptional. I’ve felt proud to watch their confidence soar and seen the success of a very well-managed show.”
