Eurovision Song Contest

Client: BBC Studios

Location: M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool

Role: Technical Manager


Given the UK’s track record in the Eurovision Song Contest, this is likely to have been a once in a lifetime opportunity to work on the event and one we weren’t going to pass up, especially as it was working back with a number of the team from Birmingham Ceremonies including the GBA team.

As part of the technical team from the start of the build through to the very end of handing the venue back, we were technical management for the build, overnight rehearsals and planned and ran the derig.

The job involved a lot of suppliers, crew and equipment all squeezed into a tight space, with over 2000 lights, nearly 600 motors and kilometres of LED and it was only made possible by a great working environment with some of the industries best suppliers all working together for the same goal.

The contest was watched by 162 million people and is now the most familiar non-sporting global event, with only the Olympics and FIFA World Cup surpassing the brand.

Commonwealth Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies

Client: Birmingham Ceremonies Ltd (GBA)

Location: Alexander Stadium, Birmingham

Role: Capital Works Manager (Production Management)


We took on the role of Capital Works Manager in the Technical department for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham 2022. Working over 8 months with 5 months on site, delivering two of the biggest shows of the moment with some of the best minds in the industry was a real privilege.


The Capital Works Manager role involved all of the infrastructure overlay required in the stadium complex that was specific to the ceremonies including overhead catenary lines, compounds, cable containment, platforms, control rooms, ramps, ground protection amongst other venue related items. It also saw us as the link between the ceremonies team, the organising committee’s Overlay team, their turnkey supplier, the venue and the venue construction team.


We were tasked with running the transition from the Opening Ceremony to Sport and the derig of ceremonies elements after the closing ceremony. Transition involved planning and co-ordinating the turnaround of the stadium from the set up of the opening ceremony to hand it back to the Organising Committee for them to operate the Commonwealth Games track and field events. All of which had to happen within a 62 hour period, which included having to returf the entire infield after all of the technical elements where removed.

It was a fantastic event to be involved in, with an amazing team of people working together to achieve an ambitious project in the physical space and the time available.
