Arena Seating gets comfy at Mandela concert

7 July 2008

Nelson Mandela celebrated his 90th birthday this year at a charity concert in London's Hyde Park.

Arena Seating was on hand to ensure that the much-loved statesman and his VIP guests had the perfect vantage point from their grandstand to enjoy the evening.

Adjacent to the huge stage, Arena Seating installed a bespoke, three tiered platform. It comprised a disabled viewing area with access ramps on level one, sponsors and VIP guest seating on level two and VVIP seating at the top level, complete with a cover, to host Mr Mandela, Prime Minister Gordon Brown and guests.

As an additional facility, Arena was asked to install a lift at the rear of the grandstand, making it easy for the 90 year Mr Mandela to access the structure with minimal effort, particularly important as he gave a speech, which received a rapturous reception, from the stage in the middle of the event.

Arena Seating Sales and Marketing Director said:

“It was a privilege to work with 46664, RW Productions and Live Nation to contribute to an event of this calibre for such a great man. With the highest level of production applied in all areas of the event for the prestigious live audience and under the eyes of the World’s media I was delighted that the Arena Seating team created a bespoke structure that fulfilled all of its functions and looked great.”
