We are delighted to see the new fly tower successfully lifted into the historic wooden beams at Citizens Theatre, Glasgow last month. This milestone is one of the many stages of the redevelopment and modernisation of the theatre and involved the 70 tonne structure being lifted into place.
The new, modern fly tower opens up exciting opportunities for future productions at Citizens - including being able to fly more scenery overhead and use the full depth of the stage, increase the scale and weight of the biggest scenic pieces used on stage, further artistic scope for productions and allow ambitious touring theatre companies to host their productions.
Watch the whole process of the moment captured on film below. Congratulations to our friends at Citizens Theatre, Bennetts Associates are proud to be playing a part in this.
