The company was commissioned to supply a series of trucks and structures, designed by Warren client Brilliant Stages, upon which are mounted seven fibre glass sculptures of Robbie Williams’ head, some over seven metres high. The heads feature in what is described as “a two-hour, rip-roaring, high-octane live show.”
A date from the three month, 26-date tour will be beamed live from Tallinn, Estonia to cinemas across the UK and Europe on the 20 August.
Warren Services, which is reluctant to reveal the contract value of its involvement in Williams’ Take The Crown stadium tour beyond admitting that it was the company’s “largest ever individual project of its kind”, said it was “proud to have been chosen to be involved in the manufacturing and build process for the stage set of one of the UK’s greatest artists”.
Warren MD William Bridgman said: “We didn’t see the full plans to start with and once we were underway the project was rapidly added to. Because a lot of the build was carried out at our assembly site we were able to see the true scale of the project, which was very exciting for our team.”
Commercial Director, Clive Poyner added: “We’ve got a fantastic team of 90 staff and most of them worked on the project at some point, day and night 24/7.”
Warren Services was established in 1989, has an annual turnover of around £6m and has recently purchased an additional 50,000 sq ft factory in Thetford.
