Formula E at Donington Park

Jul 2014

Pallet-friendly road trunks

Jun 2014

We've just completed another pair of cases for OM in Carlisle which, like the twenty or so road trunks we've made for them in the past, are designed so that two cases will fit within the footprint of a standard 1m x 1.2m pallet.  The new cases each house two 50" and one 39" slimline backlit TV's with space for all cabling and clamps.

Derby install

Dec 2013

Another install this week in Derby - this time a truss, projector, screen, drapes, LED lighting and much more.  The job was challenging due to the age of the building but the final outcome was worth it.

 


Congratulations!

Dec 2013

A big congratulations to our directors Peter and Emma who announced this week that they are expecting their second child, due early May.


Panto time!

Dec 2013

Off to Birmingham we go again, our 5th year on BCC's Panto called Starcrossed (a take on Romeo and Juliet).  They again pushed the boundaries and asked us to create a complex stage set.  After a few days rigging we installed a fully opening theatre curtain, a multilevel stage, starcloth, lots of lighting and effects, and pyros.


Major facelift in Long Eaton

Oct 2013

A busy week in Long Eaton for an install.  The room was kitted out with woollen serge drape complemented with LED up/down lighters with white LED stage washes, and projector screen.  A slightly odd drum area to drape and light meant this was a satisfying job with a good end result.


Infuse at Three Counties Showground

Aug 2013

August sees the return of Infuse summer camp at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern.  We supplied lighting and backdrops for two venues and PA for two others.  A fun week all round!  The pictures show the main venue which housed meetings, a silent disco and a talent night.  The use of LED screens really helped the daytime events where total blackout was impossible.

Aug 2012

Back to the Three Counties Showground again for the annual "Infuse" for which we supplied lighting for the main venue and sound for two smaller venues.
