Amongst many other events, we've recently worked with Dinosaur World - an interactive family show, and the 2017 British Soap Awards - two very different events at the same venue - The Lowry in Salford - showing our commitment in providing very high standards for all events.

CILLA: the musical at The Storyhouse

Photos from the load in and set up at Chester's Storyhouse theatre for the touring Cilla; The Musical.

In the pics you'll see the three semi-circular light and sound portals which we set up, winched and powered.
We also unloaded the trucks of scenery, lighting, special effects and props. We assisted in putting together the portals and stage trucks. We laid the flooring down and carried out flying work - dropping hemp rope from the grid to attach black cloths and attaching scenery and back cloths to the flying bars,
