Getting ready for the onslaught!
May is the start of the summer for us when deals have been done and promises made, now it was time to deliver, 341 Jobs 20,000 hours was a good kick start to the season.
Our training programme over the winter months had gone well we were in a good position to deliver on our promises with our crew looking forward to the longer days and bigger pay packets.
As with last year we were able to boost our existing core crews in site, production and product. Setting teams into long term contracts, especially in the staging and event structure side. Travelling throughout the UK covering sites such as Royal Cornwall Show, Bath and West Showground, Badminton Horse Trails and Bruntingthorpe Air Show. Not forgetting Glastonbury of course.
Having the UEFA Championship Final in Cardiff at The Principality Stadium kept the majority of our Cardiff crew busy, with Stadium set ups, massive inflatables, floating football pitches and the huge influx of corporate events spreading as far as Bristol and Newport. The start of 30 Jockey Club shows added alongside the regions venues brought their Spring Series of concerts to a close and kept all our crews in Bournemouth, Bristol, Plymouth and Cardiff very busy.
Of course May also saw the start of the Festival Season, we knew what was coming and had three teams totalling 50 crew trained and ready to dispatch too We Are FSTVL (cap-25,000) Radio 1 Weekend (cap-25,000) Download (cap – 110,000) which set the pace for June.
