On Saturday the 5th of April 2011  Liverpool venue Alma de Cuba hosted the John Smith’s Grand National Official Winners Party & Humphries Audio Visual team of  experts were on hand to provide production & audio visual support for the third year running.

For one night only guests had the chance to rub shoulders with the winning jockeys, owners, trainers & vip’s. As the third successive year this party had been staged it needed to be bigger and better than ever & we certainly did not dissappoint.

Our design team were delighted to be given the creative scope to transform both the inside & outside of  the venue.

Aintree racecourse requested the Grand National race footage be projected onto the outside of the building wowing passers by. For the external projection a high power projector with long throw lens was used to throw the image accross Seel Street from St Peter’s square, opposite the venue. A task that was only possible after permissions were gained from Merseyside Police & the highways agency.

Alternating footage & custom full colour ‘John Smiths’ gobos were projected inside & out as well as a powerful green architectural wash courtesy of some Citi Colors fixtures along the side of the building.

Inside we looked after the sound, lighting & staging requirements of Live 7 piece funk band ‘ Good Times’, a troop of Brazilian Dancers & Dj performances. To add excitement 4 Martin Mac 250 moving heads were untilised in conjunction with 20 Chauvet Accent LED’s.

On stage space was tight so a short throw projector was chosen to project race footage onto an 8” screen. A seamless switcher & video cueing software were provided to seamlessly blend race footage & powerpoint slides. Pa equipment & wireless microphones were provided for speeches from commentators & the race winning jockey.
