Events Experts Take to the Stage


Nov 02, 2010 | News

Shropshire events production experts have helped to stage one of the UK’s most unique festivals.

The team from stagecraftuk, in Telford, installed the main music stage at this year’s Freeze Festival which was held at Battersea Power Station.

The festival attracts snowboard, ski and music fans from all over the UK, and welcomes the world’s very best skiers and snowboarders who compete on a specially erected 32m high, 100m long real snow ramp.

As well as the snow competitions, musical acts perform in a marquee on the site over the three days and this year’s line-up included Mark Ronson, and Krafty Kuts & MC Dynamite.

A team of 10 from stagecraftuk was brought in to handle the all-important staging, and as well as installing over 330sq m of main stage, they also installed five drum risers for the artists’ drum kits.

Gerald Salt, for the Telford company, said: “The whole set-up took our team a day to build and a day to break down after the event, and the job was an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our capabilities at an extremely high profile event.”

The stagecraftuk staff worked alongside VME Limited to stage the event – one of the fastest growing companies in Europe and suppliers of all aspects of sound, lighting, AV and broadcast equipment.

Production Manager Andy Pierce said: “We were extremely impressed with the skills of the stagecraftuk team, and their expertise was invaluable in helping us to make sure that the event went smoothly.”

The stagecraftuk team has a wealth of experience in the live events industry and offer set design and installation, production and event management, dry and production equipment hire, and electrical services.
