This past Saturday, June 16th we were proud to be the sound control centre for the 2018 Wakefield Armed Forces Day celebration at Pontefract Racecourse. It was a long day, with regular threats of rain but we enjoyed every minute and somehow managed to get to the end before the heavens opened. We can’t wait to go back next year.
We had a great team on hand with our very own Nick Simon being the presenter and compare of the event, introducing the acts, a bit of advertising for the great causes and much more. Nick had a great day and earned some well deserved praise for his efforts.
In the sound tent we had Gary Wood and John Todd making sure the music was always playing and the acts had everything they needed to do their routine. Not even the threat of rain could stop the team from producing a great atmosphere in the park.
In all, thousands of people turned up to celebrate our armed forces and raise money for some great charities who work tirelessly to help our veterans, cadets and current service members of our military.
