When the Bullring Shopping Centre in Birmingham wanted a spectacular shot of confetti to fill the venue as a finale to their birthday celebrations, they called in Confetti Magic to provide the expertise.
Celebrate in Style
The Bullring shopping Centre in Birmingham celebrated its 10th Birthday at the weekend in style. As a part of the celebrations, the organisers staged a fashion show featuring special guests, The Saturdays.
To maximise the effect of the confetti cannons and add to the surprise, we rigged a Powershot system to a truss, high above in the atrium. Beneath the truss was a giant inflatable ‘10’, helping to disguise the positions of the confetti cannons.
Because the ‘10’ was being hoisted into position 3 weeks before the event, we had to select a system that would remain safely in situ, yet be ready for action on the push of a button when the moment came. Our Powershot confetti cannons were perfect for the job.
With the equipment being in position for so long, the system had to satisfy the fire safety officer that it was safe both in its standby state and during operation. The air launch cartridges and flame retardant confetti ticked all the boxes and we further sprayed the cartridges with a flame retardant treatment.
The event was a huge success and the confetti cannons provided the perfect climax to the evening.
Thank you very much for all your help – the confetti was fantastic and the audience loved it. Emma Roberts – PR Manager @ Bullring
