Trinity

Trinity Shopping Mall in Leeds put on a real show for it’s Christmas light switch on. For the grand finale we dropped 1500 balloons & 50 large balloons with flashing lights inside. The flashing lights have a small spring attached that activates the lights...

Kensington Town Hall

Here we are filling another net from the balcony at Kensington Town Hall. This was a 700 drop and the balloons were stuffed with tickets. 52 ‘Winners’ & 650 ‘SORRY’. ← Wicked 11 Visit USA 2017...

Wicked 11

We helped Wicked celebrate 11 spellbinding years with another WICKED 2000 balloon drop. To mix things up I went for a brighter Lime green balloon as the branding on their website had changed. You can see previous installations here. As cameras are not allowed in...

Bibas 2017

We were back in Blackpool for 3rd consecutive year to install these 2 x 750 drops. This year they wanted us to pull the strings so lucky for me Colin Gledhill from Roys Balloons volunteered (after fish n chips with mushy peas). AWARDS: Great evening at the @BIBAs2017!...

Village Underground

This 250 balloon drop at Village Underground took me just 2 hours to install thanks to help from the friendly genie lift driver. The drop became part of the Rex Orange County performance.   @rexorangecounty with my Apricot Princess 💫 A post shared by Lewis Grace...

Audacious

Whilst driving around Manchester looking for Audacious Church I was expecting a small Cathedral but this place was more like the O2. I think they’ll go for more balloons next year as a 500 drop was slightly lost in such a big area – but still looks cool.  ...

Ubuntu Fund

Here’s our 3rd drop at The Roundhouse in Camden for a charity event to fund a primary school. We attached our net across the Hex-Truss as usual and this time the 2 pull lines were run to the control desk on the balcony. We were asked to pull the strings and drop...

Barbican

NYE 2016

This New Years events all went smoothly (a bit like last year). I had more work in London this year including the above photo from The Hippodrome in Leicester Square. You may be interested to know that at the turn of the 19th century live animals were thrown from this...

Schneider Electric

Here’s another drop at Old Billingsgate. This one was more difficult to rig as there was no simple route for the pull line. The 4 banners under the net were held in place with 4 steel cables which were sharp to touch. I didn’t want the pull line going...

250 Drop Staffs Uni

Here’s a good example of how a 250 balloon drop looks. This one was installed at Stafford...

bibas

Following last years fun in Blackpool we were back again this year with a repeat order at The Bibas 2016. I took an extra crew member this time (there were 3 of us) because of the large table centres. I wanted more help at that difficult moment when the net rises and...

Roundhouse

Roundhouse 10th Birthday Celebrations image © John Williams Before installing the Google drop last December I worked closely with The Roundhouse in Camden to match their strict safety standards. They must have been please as they called me back to help celebrate their...

Liberty

Here’s our second shopping mall drop for Liberty Shopping Centre in Romford. This one was to celebrate Valentines day and 200 of the 1000 balloons had vouchers stuffed inside. At this venue there was no balcony available so we filled the net at ground level and...
