Our Licence To Thrill At Spectre Premiere

We helped transform the Royal Albert Hall for the world premiere of Spectre, the 24th James Bond film, which took place on the 26th October 2015.

Andy Peat Associates called upon our expert team to help ensure the eagerly anticipated Spectre premiere had a licence to thrill, as the star studded event welcomed royalty and a host of celebrity guests down the red carpet.

We provided Black wool serge drapes for the backdrop to the screen which covered the organ and some of the Logia boxes and choir stalls. This not only ensured the whole focus was on the on-screen action, but it also worked to create a sense that the screen was floating, which fit with the mystery of the spy-themed evening.

Chris Brain, our project manager commented: “Spectre was our second James Bond premiere, having worked on Skyfall in 2012, and the elegance and sophistication of these events makes them such a pleasure to work on. We were entrusted to provide our 600 Sq metre drape to create a floating screen which enhanced the experience of the guests in attendance.

“This premiere required an overnight load in during an install for a Bob Dylan show, which had to be ready for the next evening. This required careful project management to ensure our timings were on point.”

On the red carpet, the cast and crew were joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Joan Collins, Shirley Bassey and will.i.am. Following its release, the film shattered box office records with a momentous performance in the UK and the film topped the worldwide box office for three consecutive weekends.

Andy Peat, production & project manager at Andy Peat Associates commented: “As always, the Blackout team worked efficiently and without any fuss. Chris Brain and Will Bryant were helpful in the pre-production phase and supportive once we got on site. An excellent job."
