What we did
Under a veil of secrecy, event management company, MCI Belfast issued us with the brief to dress the infamous and truly unique Crumlin Road Gaol in a fantasy medieval style to celebrate the launch of the new season Game of Thrones in Northern Ireland! What a fantastic job for us.
The famous cast, production crew and dignitaries were greeted at the front of the Gaol steps by 8ft tall flaming torches and paraded along the 75ft long red carpet running through the Governor's Hall, passing in front of the Press Wall and then leading directly into the Circle where the wings of the prison converge for an evening of entertainment.
From the iron railings in the Circle we hung 12 printed banners representing the House Standards or Sigils. Guests passed by 6ft tall wrought iron candelabras decorated with natural hops garlands into spooky C-Wing which had been opened to host a 20ft long banqueting table dressed with heavy tasseled red damask tablecloth, pewter candlesticks, jugs, tankards and platters laden with medieval themed food and drinks. To add to the dark, brooding atmosphere of the cells we fixed authentic wrought iron sconces with church candles onto the walls.
Lighting and sound were provided by our partners for the event, Corporate AV.
