West Herts College student receives a press pass for the 2018 Coral Snooker shoot out

West Herts College student Paris Brown has received a press pass, giving her access to the 2018 Coral Snooker shoot-out event at Watford Colosseum. The event takes place between 8-11 February and 128 players will be competing.

Among the stars on show will be newly crowned Masters Champion Mark Allen, along with former World Champions Mark Williams and Shaun Murphy, and legend Jimmy White.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for me as my family and I have grown up watching snooker on TV,” said Paris. “To meet some of the legends of the sport will be an excellent experience not only personally, but as part of my journalistic career.”

Paris is in her final year of the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Journalism, and the trip to the Colosseum is part of a unit where students have to produce a speech package for radio.

Media tutor Ian St Peters said: “Paris has done very well to organise this accreditation, and I am sure she will enjoy mixing with the top names in snooker.”

After completing her studies at West Herts College Paris will be heading to Nottingham Trent University to study Fashion Communications.
