Members of staff from the School of Law here at Kent came to the concert-hall yesterday for a spot of team-building and staff development with a twist.
Organised by the Administration Manager for Kent Law School, Jill Holliday, the hall rang to the strumming of ukuleles, as staff got to grips with playing throughout the afternoon. ‘The Law School decided it wanted to do something completely different for its end of year celebrations this year,’ says Jill. ‘The idea of something musical was originally a bit of a joke between the organisers but having discovered Musivate on line we decided to give it a go. It’s fair to say most staff approached it with a degree of trepidation, but once we all got going everyone had a great time! It was slightly surreal – sitting with over fifty KLS staff singing along to The Lion Sleeps Tonight while strumming on a ukulele, but rather fabulous at the same time! It offered staff who have never picked up an instrument, or had the opportunity to use the Colyer-Fergusson Hall, to give this a go, which really added to the day.’
