It certainly has been a busy Summer for the Spectrum Events Team who are now getting their breath back after another exciting, if ultimately disappointing, night at Hampden Park last night. We were delighted to prepare the stadium for the sell-out crowd for the Scotland vs Germany European Championship match, and today we’ve been clearing up and preparing the stadium for it’s next event.
The latest event came hot of the heels of a major event lasting the whole of August – The Edinburgh Festivals. Spectrum Service Solutions were once again delighted to be working with the BBC at their Festivals HQ at Potterrow in Edinburgh for ‘BBC at the Festivals’.
During the period of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the Edinburgh International Festival, the BBC Festivals team played host to literally hundreds of acts, and thousands of visitors. Among the many stars to perform at Potterrow were, Paul Merton, Jo Brand, Rory Bremner, Sylvia Guillem, Nish Kumar and Ian Rankin. As you’d imagine, with such strong acts on stage the BBC complex was a very busy place indeed.
Spectrum worked day and night throughout the month providing cleaning and waste management service in the public areas, backstage, technical areas, hospitality and VIP areas keeping them clean and tidy for celebrities, presenters, officials, and members of the public.
This is the second time we’ve worked with the BBC; last year we were pleased to provide similar services during the period of the Commonwealth Games at the BBC at the Quay event in Glasgow. We are very proud of the work our events teams do over these extended events, their dedication and hard work is a major reason why organisations come back to us again and again. Thank you to each and every one of them who worked tirelessly throughout August to make the event the success that it was.
