WHAT IS THE WINTER WEEKEND?

The Hay Winter Festival Weekend 2019, which has been running for twenty years, is a smaller version of the main festival with events taking place in venues in the town. The 2019 Festival was our biggest and most high-profile yet.

The town’s atmospheric market square is a focus of festivities. On the Friday, the Hay Christmas lights are  turned on, transforming the town into a winter wonderland brimming with festive cheer. Accompanied by carol singing, readings and evening entertainment.

On the Saturday, Hay Food Festival celebrates all that’s good about winter cooking, with over 50 stalls showcasing the very best of local produce, from savoury to sweet.

On the Sunday Hay Market Square is transformed into a festive outdoor artisan market. With a wide range of traders offering a diverse collection of local arts and crafts. Get ahead with your Christmas shopping here.

Equipment we provided included:

Steeldeck Staging, Pipe & Drape, Rigging, Power and Distribution, MVS Hazers, Lighting and Event Lighting.

We also had help from Stage Sound Services who provided Sound and Video for the event.

The Solar Pessimist 2017

Last week saw us installing lighting for The Solar Pessimist at Spit and Sawdust with The Kim Fielding Award.

Working closely with Stage Sound Services; we were able to provide a complete technical package for this innovative and immersive installation.

The lighting was programmed on an ETC Ion and the system was triggered by Qlab. This provided the client with the ability to playback the installation at the touch of a button.
