Blackout's team supplied one of its first LED star cloths of the winter season
UK - Drapes and rigging specialist Blackout helped Lord's Cricket Club celebrate its 200th year in style, transforming a temporary marquee installed in the iconic grounds with an LED starcloth ceiling, 8-19 October 2014.

The marquee allowed guests to make the famous walk through the Long Room, down the steps of the Pavilion, through the players' gate and into the stunningly- decorated venue which played host to banquets, invitation-only events for local residents and a two-night run of live music from Roxy Music star Bryan Ferry.

Blackout's team supplied one of its first LED starcloths of the winter season; a huge 30m x 20m installation into the marquee's roof, adding a magical and festive feel.

Blackout's project manager Tom Lambert said, LED starcloth is the ideal solution for a temporary venue like the one installed at Lord's; it helps to create a more permanent feel and offers acoustic absorption properties perfectly suited for events with live music. We're quickly heading into the Christmas season and this is a great example of how LED starcloth can add atmosphere to any event or venue. "

Blackout's LED starcloths are manufactured from an innovative, light weight molton trevira - a modern alternative to the traditional wool serge - and fitted with energy efficient, low maintenance, long life LED lamps.
