Aintree ‘Summer Nights Sound of the 80s’ 2015 – Case Study


Returning to Aintree in successive months following production at the Grand National, we transformed the Red Rum lawn for an awesome evening of entertainment. Our 12m x 10m covered MPT stage hosted an array of talent including Sonia, Go West and Nik Kershaw who performed with a full 5-piece live band. Requiring quick turnarounds in between acts on the night, we arranged for the artists to use a shared backline.
