The Soundstage One team has now completed yet another summer of interesting and diverse events.
The summer has once again seen us working throughout the UK. All of our stages have been put through their paces with the Cavern stage and Eagle stage once again being the most popular catering for Jools Holland, Peter Andre, McFly, Joe Mcelderry, Stooshie, Chic, Central RAF band. Sky Television, Billy Ocean, Jimmy Cliff, Groove Armada, Booka Shade, and the Tower of London.
Unlike last summer the weather has been much more on our side… 2012 proved to be a challenging season with almost constant rain and wind to contend with combined with the Olympics and The Queens Jubilee. The season required a lot of logistical planning and adapting to the conditions but we were proud to say at the end of the year every show was delivered on time and all the structures and staff performed to a high standard achieving every requirement.
At the end of each season our attention turns to re-grouping and planning for next year. A large amount of maintenance and TLC is top of the list along with considering what new equipment is required to cater for the future. Although not as busy on the road our warehouse becomes a hive of activity getting ready for next summer before the year is even finished.
