Welsh Rugby Union Senedd Celebration Event and AV management.

// Welsh Rugby Union

The brief

To provide full Event and AV management for the Welsh Rugby Union Six Nations Celebration, on the steps of the Senedd - with just 48 hours notice! 

Key objectives

  • Deliver an event fit for the celebration of Grand Slam Winners
  • 48 hour turn-around

Solution

  • A full PA system
  • Lighting
  • Biodegradable streamers
  • LED screens
  • Trophy plinths
  • Live camera feed (including a vis link wireless camera system)
  • Playback system for VT’s
  • A generator for the sound and lighting
  • A show caller/director to ensure the event ran smoothly.

From the tentative talks on the Friday evening, to the green light on the Sunday, we had to turn all of this around in less than 48 hours (and you bet - we did!) 

Our on-site Floor Manager and Show Caller co-ordinated the running order with the WRU, and liaised with the presenters, choir and partners such as the Senedd, South Wales Police, and Cardiff Council to ensure the smooth running of all cues, VT’s, trophy lift for pyros (the list goes on…).

This really was one of those events where it’s all about the team. With such a tight turnaround, collaboration was key in ensuring that we could deliver the event fit for the celebration of Grand Slam Winners!
