Services: Conception / Planning / Production / Site / Front of House
Client: Sistema Scotland
Launch of the London 2012 Festival in Scotland
Based on a feasibility report completed by Unique Events, the client was looking for a company to site, produce and manage a spectacular, large scale, outdoor classical concert for both a live audience and broadcast.
Upon award of the contract we located a waste ground site under Stirling Castle, which we envisaged as the firing point for the firework finale. We transformed the area into an event arena with a stage for 200 musicians, grandstand and picnic area for spectators as well as concessions and toilet facilities.
‘Unique Events were fundamental in delivering a professional, safe, and successful night. Their presence and reputation also gave confidence to our many stakeholders and funders. We established good relationships between our staff and Unique, and we were very demanding in our vision of the celebratory and inclusive concert we wanted. Unique enabled us to deliver on that vision.
We were professionally guided by Unique resulting in a hugely successful concert which went on to win the prize for best Year of Creative Scotland event in the Creative Scotland Awards.’
