What we love most about our job is the fact we’re allowed to showcase our creativity and imagination daily - and one of our recent projects for a global client was no exception.
We were commissioned to design and build two stage sets for a one-day event, which took place at Coombe Abbey, near Coventry. Whilst the first was a stage set suitable for a corporate conference taking place during the day, it was the second brief that really got our creative juices flowing.
We were asked to transform the space in the evening for the leaving party of a senior member of the team and quickly realised that, as it was a fairly small room, we would have to create a bespoke set to fit the space.
We learned that the member of staff is a huge darts fan, so what could be better than creating a replica of ‘Bullseye!’, the popular TV gameshow from the 1980s and 1990s?
After some creative brainstorming, we created a bespoke design incorporating an eye-catching stage set comprising of an 8ft circular dart board!
We also installed the customary dart board – and in true Bullseye! fashion, we replicated the star prize, with a “mini-speedboat”, which took pride of place on the stage.
As well as producing theming for this exciting event, we handled the full technical production; lighting and sound together with a camera and projector screen that showed close-ups of the dart board to the guests.
There was a short turnaround between the day time and evening set – just two hours to be exact – but our highly experienced production team planned for this and installed everything with no hitches.
Speaking of this one-of-a-kind event, Jake Moore, production manager of On, said:
“We really enjoy working on these kind of projects, where we can take an aspect of someone’s personality or something they really enjoy and build a whole set around these ideas.
“The result looked really amazing. Bullseye! is such an iconic British gameshow, so it was great to see all the positive responses from guests at the event who were all really impressed with the set.”
