Following on from the positivity of last week’s illumination of King’s College, Cambridge, which showed solidarity for all key workers during this unprecedented time, the team of local event companies (The Crane Event, Pink Lamp and JMPS) have once again lit up one of the city’s iconic buildings to show their continued support of the selfless individuals holding our country together.
#MakeItBlue returns with a new ‘Storey’ to tell
Tonight was the turn of the architecturally stunning, Storey's Field Centre in Eddington. Opened in Spring 2018, this award-winning building usually provides a sense of community and wellbeing to the residents and admirers of this newly developed district through hosting vibrant cultural and social events.
"We’ve hosted many events at Storey’s Field Centre in the past and wanted to highlight the community-spirited connection Eddington has with the city, whilst bringing something special to the residents to enjoy from the safety of their homes. This award-winning building might be new, but it’s already a recognised landmark for Cambridge and we were certain it would look simply stunning whilst shining bright for our heroes" - Justin Crane, The Crane Event
This week JMPS, another local organisation, brought some extra pizzazz through their speciality in projections.
Director, James Merrigan commented:“With our diary clear for the foreseeable future, I can't think of a better use of our time than showing admiration for the NHS and their supporting teams with our involvement in these projects”.
The centre’s manager, Richard Brown summed up the thoughts of the community perfectly ... “Storey’s Field Centre salutes our brilliant brave NHS staff, City Council workers keeping the city running and the city’s scientists working on tests, cures and vaccines. We look forward to welcoming everyone back when the danger subsides but for now, Stay Home and Love the NHS”.
#makeitblue is a national campaign bringing striking visuals to temporarily-redundant venues across the world including the Royal Albert Hall, Angel of the North, and The Shard. For the safety of all, the planning of this campaign was done from the organisers' homes, and the venue kept a secret until the lights were switched off.
The Crane Event is an independent, Cambridge-based event agency run by husband and wife team: Justin Crane and Jemma Crane. Their management and marketing services make events memorable for clients such as Arm, Johnson Matthey and Green Custard.
