SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH OPENS WOODBERRY WETLANDS
Our team had quite the ‘wild’ day out last weekend. Woodberry Wetlands approached our company to provide an event space for the opening of their beautiful wetlands centre on 30th April, after all it has been closed to the public for 200 years.
To add to the sense of occasion, the centre was opened by eminent broadcaster and naturalist, Sir David Attenborough.
With a note from the client; “Thanks for a grand job at Woodberry Wetlands launch”, it is another success to add to our proved track record in delivering outstanding marquee events.
The opening of Woodberry Wetlands, a beautiful space centre to be opened by Sir David Attenborough on 30th April.
The challenge was simple for Marquee Hire Surrey, to create an exceptional marquee event space to hold VIP’s, press, and of course, Sir David for the opening of this stunning space in London.
Build and de-rig were to be on the same day, so our team needed to use a structure that could be set up and taken down within this timelines.
Whilst the site spans the size of over 13 football pitches, the size allocated for the marquee was somewhat smaller.
Marquee Hire arrived on site on Saturday at 0730 to begin build of a 6m x21m marquee, which needed to be weighted using our marquee weights as it was situated on hard standing. The marquee needed one side open to enjoy the stunning vistas across the wetlands, with access to the rear for catering a services. At one end of the marquee a small stage was constructed for speeches and formalities.
There is no function that is too much of a challenge for Marquee Hire and Marquee Hire Sussex to handle. Their years of knowledge and expertise shows in the professionalism they show with every event.
