O2

Heart shaped latex balloons at The O2 London. A small 200 drop made nice and simple because they lowered the truss. Bit of rigging @ The O2 London pic.twitter.com/nhJ5vsIsmG — balloon (@balloon) February 10, 2018 ← The Apollo Seddon Crofton...

The Apollo

Here’s our first drop at The Hammersmith Apollo. A slightly tricky install, we had to make sure no pull lines cast any shadows over the huge screen. Not easy as I had my usual 2 lines coming from the centre. Also below is a photo from The Apollo roof: Today @...

Adelphi

For the 1000th show of Kinky Boots we worked with the Adelphi Theatre on The Strand to celebrate with this balloon drop. The Red balloons were printed 2 colours on 1 side with the Kinky Boots logo and the reverse side – “Turning Blue Monday Red”....

NYE 2017

All went to plan this year for New Years Eve. It was 3 long days starting in Brighton on the 29th, London on 30th & London and Birmingham on the 31st. I think next year I might consider missing out Birmingham as I was pretty exhausted (2am to 6pm on the 31st)....

Hippodrome London

This years Hippodrome NYE drop was a straight forward rig as it was a mirror of last years. It’s always easier working somewhere the 2nd time round. The Hippodrome, Leicester Square pic.twitter.com/RwRCLCiYlE — balloon (@balloon) December 30, 2017 ←...

Roundhouse 2018

This years December drop at The Roudhouse was rigged slightly differently. The central Hex Truss was being used for a trapese act so I had to hang the net clear of this area. I was allowed up above the truss onto the open mesh where I dropped down 2 lines to pull the...

The Dorchester

2 x 400 Drops at The Dorchester. These were for a Charity Ball and each net had 12 Black Balloons inside, grab a Black Balloon and you win a bottle of Champagne. We stayed on site to pull the lines at 3pm for the grand finale. ← Albert Hall Mcr Roundhouse 2018...

Albert Hall Mcr

To celebrate the 1st Birthday for the reopening of The Albert Hall in Manchester I rigged this 750 drop with 11”, 16” and 36” balloons. It was a last minute thing so I did this on my own as we also had arches in Chelmsford & Aberdeen. A post shared by C H R I S P...

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...
