Set in the “Museum of Army Flying”, essentially an aircraft hangar, lighting was key to getting the atmosphere right on the night.
Although we supplied and connected all the power cabling, we also supplied a total lighting solution including; a lighting rig for ambient stage lighting designed to fit in with the colour scheme, a spotlight for speeches and bright wash light for the awards ceremony and our team were on cue to send the moving heads around the room when each winner was announced. We also lit all the tables from above in various colours to create an atmosphere around the whole room not just the stage.
With our star cloth forming the stage backdrop for the night, we also installed coloured uplights positioned around the edges of the room, highlighting the museum planes as well as plenty of ambient lighting.
We also provided PA and microphones and put together a collection of suitable background music to use at various times throughout the night.
Our team were on hand throughout the night to ensure all audio, lighting and power ran smoothly, whilst also ensuring we complied with health and safety regulations as we were working in public areas throughout.
“From our first contact with SJT Services Sam and Lisa were very positive about the light and sound effect we could achieve in the Museum of Army flying, they translated our vague plans into just what we needed. The museum space was transformed, they installed a fantastic lighting rig that delivered all aspects of what we needed for The Test Valley Business Awards and met with the approval of the museum staff as it was carefully installed around their unique collection of aircraft. Not only did SJT Services provide the stage microphones for our MC and guest speaker the Rev Richard Coles they provided and played pre-recorded background music and various special pieces as the winners and speakers went on to the stage” Mark Edgerley – Romsey Town Centre Manager
