Illuminating York

Working on behalf of Bright White Ltd, Event Flooring Solutions (EFS) have provided temporary flooring for the Illuminating York Festival. The festival runs Wednesday 31 October until Saturday 3 November. EFS created a working pad for an articulated lorry using 130m² of their Hex Road product along with providing temporary walkways and disabled access areas throughout the museum grounds using 400m² of Temp-A-Path® .  Both products provide ideal safe flooring environments which also providing ideal protection for the grounds themselves. EFS Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson commented “This is a new project for us and we are delighted that our products were chosen.” He added “This is the start of a busy few months for EFS and we look forward to more diverse opportunities for our product range”. This will be York’s largest Illuminating York Festival yet, with comedian Vic Reeves given a free reign to unleash his absurd and magical creations in the centre of York. Last year’s event saw 60,000 people flock to the festival, and as well as three large scale projections, the botanical gardens will also be brought to magical life using innovative lighting around trees and plants. The York Museum Gardens have been transformed into a ten acre magical wonderland for the return of Illuminating York.  Where the old world meets new, as the hauntingly beautiful ruins of St Mary’s Abbey, the stunning facade of the Yorkshire Museum and part of the City Walls provide the backgrounds to three large scale cutting edge projections.
