The Sound & Light Hire Company Provide Full Event Production for Awards Evening at Farnham Castle

Farnham Castle is just under an hour from London and positioned on the Surrey/Hampshire border. Founded by the Bishop of Winchester and dating back to the 12th century, this magnificent building is nestled among beautiful grounds and scenic woodlands. It’s the perfect place to host all kinds of events, including weddings and charity balls. 

There are a variety of rooms and suites within the building that play host to occasions of all kinds, blending modern and contemporary features with period architecture. One such room had been booked out to welcome guests for an awards evening for a prestigious London-based company. The awards show was to be a celebration of the hard work put in over the last 18 months and overcoming the challenges presented by the pandemic.   

As an approved event production supplier to Farnham Castle, we were called in to handle all event production requirements not handled in house. So let’s tell you a little more about the work we carried out. 

Stage Hire and Sound Equipment Provided to Awards Evening at Farnham Castle

Upon sitting down with the client, one of the first elements we discussed was the stage, which was the focal point for the evening. We considered several stage hire options before reaching a consensus on a modular design, with four tiers leading up to the main stage platform. They went for black colour with gold trim on the steps (tiers) leading up the stage, in keeping with the overall black and gold dress code and decor for the event. 

We kitted out the stage with a podium for the presenter and slotted a wired microphone just above where the presenter’s notes were to be positioned. We then rigged up an extensive PA system that includes several speakers, sub-bass units, stage monitors, and power amps to ensure everyone in attendance had no problem hearing proceedings. 

With those elements taken care of, it was time to move on to the lighting. 

Event Lighting Supplied to Prestigious Awards Show in Surrey

The event brief concerning lighting was split into decorative/mood lighting and stage lighting. On the decorative side, we positioned several wireless uplighters in two banks (one bank for each wall) along the perimeter of the function room. We programmed them to emit a light shade of gold, identical to the main colour in their logo and the trim added to the main stage tiers.  

We also set up a gobo projector that beamed the company logo around the ceiling close to the stage to add a real touch of class to proceedings. With the mood and decorative lighting taken care of, it was time to rig the stage lighting. 

We started by constructing and rigging a rectangular truss suspended from the ceiling using dedicated anchor points. We then started affixing the stage lighting fixtures, including spotlights, stage washes, and a few disco lights (for light displays in between awards categories). 

Finally, our engineers and technicians were on hand to handle the sound mixing and technical direction of the lighting sequences. The event was a resounding success, and everyone had a fantastic evening. We’re already looking forward to being involved in next year’s edition.
