St John's College, Cambridge University May Ball

On 18th June 2024 we were contracted by St John’s College, Cambridge to produce a multi-element production consisting of: a drone light show, pyromusical firework display, lasers, lighting and flame projection all choreographed to a custom produced soundtrack.

Every one of these elements are done in house, from the same company, the same building. Our team of 14 dedicated professionals worked to bring this multi-element spectacular to life. From initial planning to the final execution. The result was a 20-minute extravaganza that left a lasting impression on everyone present.

The theme of the event was mythical creatures and so careful design of the drone show animation used various characters in the sky to reinforce this to the audience.

Designing a show of this nature requires a wide range of diciplines for example co-ordinating the launch of drones whilst the fireworks are firing and ensuring safety is upmost at all times. Because we are also one Europe’s leading firework display companies we are perfectly placed to produce both elements at any event.

Using drones at a May Ball event offers a unique and captivating way to enhance the evening’s festivities. Here are several reasons why incorporating a drone light show can elevate your event:

  1. Innovative Entertainment: Drones provide a cutting-edge form of entertainment that captivates and excites guests. Their ability to create intricate patterns and synchronised movements in the sky offers a visually stunning spectacle unlike any traditional entertainment.
  2. Customisable Displays: Drones can be programmed to display personalised messages, college emblems, or thematic designs, making the event feel bespoke and tailored specifically to your May Ball. This level of customisation ensures a memorable and unique experience for attendees.
  3. Versatility: Drones are highly versatile and can be synchronised with other elements of the event, such as music, lighting, and even fireworks, creating a cohesive and multi-sensory experience that amplifies the overall impact of the evening.
  4. Wow Factor: The novelty and technical sophistication of drone light shows are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression on your guests. Their ability to create three-dimensional, moving visuals in the sky provides a dynamic and impressive display that guests will talk about long after the event.
  5. Photographic Opportunities: The visual appeal of drone shows makes for fantastic photo and video opportunities, both for professional photographers and guests. These stunning visuals can be shared on social media, enhancing the event’s visibility and reputation.

Lasers and Lighting

Incorporating lasers into your event can transform the atmosphere with dynamic and visually striking displays. Lasers provide vibrant, high-intensity beams of light that can create intricate patterns, sweeping movements, and synchronised effects, all tailored to match the theme and mood of your event. Their ability to interact with music and other visual elements makes them a powerful tool for creating immersive experiences, captivating your audience, and elevating the overall impact of the celebration. Additionally, lasers can be safely used in various settings, offering a versatile and innovative way to enhance the visual appeal and excitement of your event.

Digital Flame

Flame projectors add a dramatic and exhilarating element to any event, creating a captivating visual and sensory experience. These devices shoot controlled bursts of fire into the air, synchronised with music, lighting, or other special effects, adding intensity and excitement to the atmosphere. The mesmerising dance of flames can be used to highlight key moments, build suspense, or punctuate high-energy segments of the event, leaving a lasting impression on your audience.
