Richmond Event Management (REM) transformed Colston Hall for the European Green Capital closing ceremony, as the city gathered to reflect on its momentous year, 10 February.
As Bristol prepared to hand over its title to Ljubljana, Slovenia, REM was contracted to help Bristol celebrate the legacy of European Green Capital 2015 and hear exciting plans for the year ahead.
For the Closing Ceremony, REM contracted a range of local suppliers, including Utopium and Evans Audio Visual Staging, to help transform Colston Hall.
REM was also tasked with stage management and production of the event, and around 70 participants were walked on and off stage by REM’s Mike Richmond to ensure smooth running of the show.
The Closing Ceremony included presentations and exhibitions from Bristol mayor George Ferguson, local community groups and Bristol 2015 ambassadors, as well as a procession from local children that featured the illuminated umbrellas first seen in the launch ceremony.
Utopium, the lighting company, provided lighting within the main auditorium, atrium and first floor bar, to ensure a spectacular visual display and Evans Audio Visual supplied the PA facilities and projection that offered the audience the best possible AV experience
REM managing director Mike Richmond said: “We’re proud to have been involved with European Green Capital from the start, as being a Bristol based company this is something close to our hearts
“Colston Hall is an extremely busy local venue which meant we had just one day to load in and four hours to load out.”
