Yorkshire based events and design firm Stage One, is taking centre stage at the Olympic Opening Ceremony in Rio.

The opening ceremony will be broadcast live on BBC One from 23:40 BST and is guaranteed to be an unmissable, vibrant and energetic show. That said the Yorkshire based firm will undoubtedly be stealing a little chunk of the limelight with the company proudly adding another unforgettable build to its portfolio.

Part of the opening ceremony equipment, particularly the scenic performer flying system software and hardware has been designed, manufactured and installed by the firm.

Tim Leigh, Sales & Marketing Director said “With an estimated broadcast audience of almost one billion there is considerable pressure to deliver a perfectly executed show. Feedback from rehearsals has been encouraging and we’re looking forward to delivering a perfect performance”.

The firm has gone from strength to strength in recent years and was involved in the award winning Hive at Kew Gardens and also created Jaguar’s pods displayed at motoring events around the world, the Youtube Brandcast in 2015 and even created a bespoke space for Android™ at the mobile world congress in Barcelona.

The opening ceremony is expected to be watched by over a billion people across the globe. Be sure to keep an eye out for the excellent work provided by British-based Stage One.
