Setting up for Camp Bestival …
We’ve spent the last 4 days on site here at Lulworth Castle in Dorset ahead of the massive finale show that will close the festival.The display is an amazing combination of fireworks off the roof, music and animation projected onto the front of the building. We’re expecting a crowd of around twenty five thousand people and we’re on straight after The Stone Roses!. It’s been a massive logistical operation – 4 of us are working on the roof itself – setting up the fireworks for the 15 minute display.
Another four crew have been moving over two tonnes of kit up six flights of stairs! The abseiling team have been working through the night to install the special window screens we’ve made that will allow the projections to cover the entire facade of the castle. The fireproof fabric that will protect the roof is out, the fireworks are all plugged in and tested. Let the countdown commence…!
