Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens
Kew Gardens hold an annual Carol Concert in the grand surroundings of Wakehurst Place, the home of Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank. This charity event attracts crowds in excess of 4,000 on the last Friday before Christmas each year. There is a large staged area that houses three local choirs and the Salvation Army band.

Kew Gardens approached Show Hire to provide them with a high-quality mixing desk, microphones, and amplifiers, and faithful sound replication. In addition, a satellite public address system was also required to broadcast the concert into their restaurant and cafeteria area.

Project Details
Show Hire continues to supply Kew Gardens with AKG condenser microphones for authentic reproduction of the choirs and band, and the latest 300 G2 series Sennheiser radio microphones for the compere to introduce each carol and interact with the public. The sound system is made up of 4 pairs of Electro Voice ZX100T 200 watt speakers, surrounding the Wakehurst court yard and giving perfect sound for the 4,000 strong crowd.

Show Hire has a full range of Electro Voice Speakers and amplifiers and well as a comprehensive range of Sennheiser products in our hire fleet as well as for sale on our Show Sales website or by phone. If you would like any further information on this or any of our products please feel free to contact us.
