Winterville on Clapham Common’s featured an outdoor Ice Rink, Backyard Cinema’s Winter Night Garden, Plonk Golf, a Fairground, a Roller Disco, a Special Family Christmas Show, a Market filled with creations from independent designers and various themed bars. This exciting high-profile pop-up attraction ran in the lead up to the festive season welcoming 1000s of guests through its doors each evening.
Our brief was to take a standard white marquee and transform it into a fully themed temporary venue. The venue would form the main bar on site at the event, welcoming many guests across the course of the series of events. The sheer size of the marquee presented a considerable challenge, a prospect relished by our creative team on receipt of the brief. In addition to creating a specialist facia for this part of the project our brief also included the fabrication of a range of bespoke bar signs across site.
To achieve the end result, The Halo Group's in-house team started by designing the facia at our London studios. Once signed off by the client, we prefabricated each of the elements required for the marquee design at our workshop. The Halo Group's carpentry team painstakingly cut each of the architectural features before sanding, torching and varnishing each panel to create an authentic finish in line with the saloon theme. To complete the project, our specialist build team proceeded to construct the temporary structure on site at Clapham Common before fitting signage and general lighting.
