Busy New Year’s Eve/ Hogmanay for Sunbaba

Event branding specialist Sunbaba was in action throughout the festive period as the company was busy delivering the backdrop and branding for two of New Year’s Eve’s most high profile celebrations. Sunbaba provided the backdrop for popular TV show, Alan Carr’s New Year Specstacular and the stage branding and signage for the two sell out concerts held in Edinburgh to celebrate Hogmanay.

The backdrop for Alan Carr’s New Year Specstacular was 3.49 metres in width and 1.91 metres in height was produced using Impact Prime, the high-quality fabric is perfect for backlighting and delivers excellent illuminated graphics so was ideal for television and exactly what producer Andrew Gates was looking for. The backdrop was in shot throughout the show which saw Danny Dyer, Keith Lemon, Greg Rutherford, Laura Whitmore, Sinitta, Will Mellor and Gemma Collins bring in 2017 with the help of music by Professor Green and TIEKS.

Working directly for Unique Events, who organise the Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations and events on behalf of Edinburgh City Council, Sunbaba produced the PA scrims and signage for entrances and exits surrounding West Princes Street Gardens where two sell out concerts are held on the 30th and 31st December.

The PA scrims were printed on Sunbaba’s Digisound mesh material, perfect for speaker coverage, measuring 6.45 metres in width and 7.95 metres in height, they were finished with eyelets at the bottom and a 50mm top pocket, for easy installation. The signage was printed in various sizes, to perfectly match each of the four gates and entrances used to enter and exit the park, all eight signs were finished with eyelets and printed using xxxxx, which is easy to install and weather resistant.

Edinburgh’s Hogmanay showcase The Night Afore Concert on 30th December was headlined by Paolo Nutini and sold out in a record three hours. Whilst, Concert in the Gardens, was held on 31st December and saw the Lightning Seeds, The Vegan Leather and Lemonhaze take to the stage.

Sunbaba’s deputy managing director, Amelie Cross comments: “Providing branding solutions to two of the UK’s high profile New Year’s Eve celebrations was a great way for Sunbaba to round off a busy and successful year. Once again we were able to demonstrate our ability to select the right material for the job whilst delivering fantastic print quality.”
