Barbican

Here’s my first drop at the Barbican Centre in London. This was 1000 balloons held back stage and you can see part of the drop in action in the tweets below: Transworld absolutely making my day with this balloon drop 🎈🎈🎈#PenguinPresents...

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...

NYE 2015

For the last 3 years I’ve been decorating a large restaurant in Mayfair early AM before it opens. The venue is made up of several smaller restaurants each serving different styles of food. Previously they’ve ordered 5 large drops and it’s been a tight turnaround to...

Google Party

This balloon drop at The Roundhouse in Camden was a little different because Google wanted big balloons. When we drop smaller 11″ they get jumped on and burst but when BIGGER balloons fall everybody wants to bop them back up into the air and punch them around...

9 Spellbinding Years

Amazing to help celebrate 9 spellbinding years for Wicked this September 2015. They dropped 2000 Emerald Green balloons and were lucky enough to watch the show, it’s a fantastic story and the songs just blow you away.   We’ve rigged this drop for the...

Blackpool Tower Ballroom

This was a standard balloon drop installation very similar to the theatre work we do. This drop consisted of 2 x 750 Metallic Gold balloons lifted into the ceiling area of this famous Blackpool landmark. The drop was for the Biba 2015 awards and the client wanted one...

7K Liverpool Drop

We installed this 7000 balloon drop at the Liverpool One shopping mall overnight on 21st July. We started at 10pm and worked though to 6am before waiting for the afternoon drop. 3500 Of the balloons were stuffed with tickets of which 500 were winning prizes....

Dundee Drop

This all Gold drop was to mark the opening of a new wing at Dundee University. As we’re based in The Midlands there was a fair amount of travelling involved but we like an adventure. We had to cost in 2 days travelling and hotel accommodation but the final...

The Savoy

500 Balloon drop installed in The Savoy Hotel for a charity fundraising ball, the balloons were released when the charity total hit £1 million raised. The tech guys at the hotel prepared two ceiling hooks for us at 20ft apart. This sounds straight forward but when we...
