Countdown to WOMAD
Posted on Friday, April 26th, 2013 by Autotrak
12 weeks, five days and 16 hours to go before the start of WOMAD. That’s the countdown for visitors but for contractors to the event at Charlton Park, Wiltshire in late July the countdown starts a bit earlier.
We are pleased to be providing heavy-duty and medium-duty roadway, pedestrian walkway and rhino mats for the festival for another year (the photo on our Super Track Flooring page was taken at WOMAD 2012) to be used for pedestrian and vehicle access as well as loading bays for the main stages and tour bus parking areas.
As always we are the first company on site and for us the set-up for WOMAD starts on July 12th – nearly two weeks before the festival opens to the public.
The reason we’ve been chosen to provide portable roadway for WOMAD according to Rupert Bassadone, Head of Operations is that “we are a company that can provide extra stock (beyond the core specification) and have it on site within 24 hours in case of severe weather”.
Let’s hope set-up is a bit drier than last year, it was a mud bath leading up to the event but in case of problems we are on hand to deal with any emergencies and live up to the faith that WOMAD has in us.
If you would like more information about how we can help provide temporary roadway for your festival please get in touch with us.
