The Sound System

Walkabout Colchester has continuously improved its sound system over the years. They chose the Void sound system with BSS processing and Dynacord amplification. This ensures clear sound for every beat, note, and spoken word. This choice creates an exceptional audio experience for their guests.

Lighting That Excites

The venue's lighting system is equally remarkable. It features cutting-edge Chauvet effects lighting, including moving heads, spot, beam, and wash lighting. This adds a dynamic and visually stunning ambiance to the venue. The entire setup is managed by the powerful ShowCAD control system, allowing the venue to craft captivating light shows and elevate the overall atmosphere.
