Manchester Vivid Christmas Party

Manchester Vivid Christmas Party

This project was set in Manchester Great Central Hall, a large space in which a large winter wonderland set was constructed. The rig was a large triangular truss section with two smaller triangles lifted vertically so they stood like three pyramids. The main challenge on this project was raising the structure, experienced venue riggers too the lead on the job, removing bottom sections to avoid a twisting effect due to the strains of being lifted. The lower sections of the triangular truss were attached after the larger sections were raised. With the rig being preloaded with sharpys it was important to consider the weight on each leg and on each motor as the structure was lifted into place.

Further to rigging many small birdies had to be installed in a large log cabin, using par behind windows to give a warmth effect and chandeliers to make it authentic. Cabling had to be subtle and tidy, giving a professional finish, the team were able to drill strategic holes in set to achieve this.
