The Screen Space 2020 was our response to the restricted summer we all had to endure. The aim was to produce a new socially distanced event that would ensure we all could be entertained while enjoying the great outdoors. We worked closely with the local environmental authorities to make this production happen in recored time. This included Covid risk assessments, day tot day monitoring and staff training sessions to ensure we warred doing everything we could to keep our audiences safe.
We were the first event company in the country to pioneer Social distancing circles and featured the largest outdoor screen in the country, with great feedback from all parties involved. There was no doubt the project was a huge success and we are looking forward to bring it back in 2021! The venue praised our production staff and security for their efficient safe management of our audiences.
The Screen Space project offered audiences a variety of entertainment and activities to suit all ages and tastes. These included – Open air cinema, Comedy nights, live music, exercise classes and kids interactive entertainment…
Careful planning and design was necessary to not only ensure the safety of our audiences but also the technical success of the event. The size and height of the screen was critical to allow a comfortable and safe experience. Our screen size of 120m2 and over 3m of lower clearance made viewing from any distance easy and enjoyable.
