UK - Set in the courtyard of one of London's most celebrated historic buildings, Summer Series at Somerset House featured a programme of diverse music acts playing a series of special shows between 7 and 19 July.

Working with production managers Ronnie Lee for Metropolis Music and Jon Howes for Somerset House, PRG's senior account manager Loz Wilcox provided a lighting system for the temporary stage at Somerset House. Jon Howes said: "Nothing but praise for the kit supplied to Somerset House once again. PRG's service and back up was excellent."

PRG supplied house lighting designer, Petter Skramstad, with a core lighting package of Clay Paky Alpha Spot 700 HPE, i-Pix BB4 LED Battens, Martin Atomic Strobes and GLP Impression 120 Zoom LED Washlights, combining to provide a flexible house rig suitable for the broad range of performers and visiting LDs.

Petter commented: "I was very pleased you [PRG] could, at a very busy time, supply all the GLPs and the Clay Paky range. They are fantastic workhorses that fulfilled all our needs and beyond. They are bright, modern, light weight and very reliable. All the incoming LDs commented on their qualities and everyone appreciated having all the same type of units. All in all it was all a great success and a huge thanks to all staff for a really well prepped job. I can't stress enough that on every job, I receive incredible support from Loz and his team."

Australian musical cabaret superstar Tim Minchin kicked off proceedings with a bang on 7 July, paving the way for 11 nights of truly eclectic programming; ranging from the slinky urban soul of Jill Scott to the chart smashing pop of dubstep breakthrough Katy B; to the darker, more dramatic palettes of Anna Calvi and Paloma Faith.
