Drapes and rigging specialist Blackout helped Lords Cricket Club celebrate its 200th year by draping a temporary marquee with an LED starcloth ceiling.
The marquee allowed guests to walk through the Long Room, down the steps of the Pavilion, through the Players’ gate and into the bespoke venue.
From 8-19 October, the venue hosted banquets, invitation-only events for local residents, and two nights of live music.
Blackout’s team supplied one of its first LED starcloths of the winter season – a 30m x 20m installation into the marquee’s roof.
The LED starcloths are manufactured from a lightweight molton trevira – a modern alternative to the traditional wool serge – and fitted with energy efficient, low maintenance, long life LED lamps.
“LED starcloth is the ideal solution for a temporary venue like the one installed at Lords,” said Blackout’s project manager Tom Lambert. “It helps to create a more permanent feel and offers acoustic absorption properties perfectly suited for events with live music.“
