June Update June Update


A particularly busy month to kickstart the summer – which included a drop-by from the local press, wanting to know how businesses affected by the December floods were getting on 6 months after. With our offices and stores, located in the Tyne Valley, badly damaged just before Christmas last year, we've been on a bit of a recovery trail recently. But with the support of all our clients - old and new - and with fantastic projects coming onboard across the UK, we're full of positive!

Director, Dave Proctor, spoke briefly about enduring adverse times after most of the business was washed-away (quite literally) back in December 2015: http://www.hexham-courant.co.uk/news/prudhoe/Flood-hit-firms-in-Prudhoe-may-be-forced-to-move-out--a4b0e01c-673b-4cc5-8a70-53cf50dd5d3e-ds

Anyway – here's what we've been up to so far in June:

Gateshead Leisure Centre has been a busy venue this month, hosting the EU Referendum ballot count and live results, as well as a wedding for popular TV show Don't Tell the Bride.

We were asked to provide professional sound systems for both events, with technical support for the duration from our events hire team. Both events went off without a hitch – and we of course wish our congratulations to the happy couple (and the happy voters!)

23rd June was the Armed Forces Flag Raising Day, with Gateshead Civic Centre the location for the annual event, held in recognition of the armed forces community. An outdoor lectern and PA system was provided for speech and music.

Finally, the Laing Art Gallery saw the opening of the new Alice in Wonderland Exhibition, on tour from the British Library until October 2016.

We were commissioned to supply and install interactive audio visual displays as part of the exhibition space – including a bespoke system for a specially created platform game. This comprised of a high-power gaming PC and HD LED display, housed within a custom MDF cabinet. Game software was successfully configured using the Unreal Engine development tool, and an Xbox controller with security mounting was added for visitors to play the game.
