Allspan’s Losberger Structures Return to Highclere Castle for Private Concert

Allspan has worked with many exclusive venues across the UK, providing our stylish Losberger structures and marquees for all types of different events. On this occasion, the venue was Highclere Castle in Newbury, renowned for being the home of the popular TV series Downton Abbey, and the event was a private concert within the grounds.

The Castle provides a dramatic backdrop for corporate events, weddings and private parties and having worked with Highclere Castle on several occasions, Allspan were delighted to return to this iconic location.

Our elegant Losberger structure looks incredible in any location, but it can especially complement historic venues, such as Highclere Castle, where our clients can enjoy complete flexibility when it comes to the finish; transparent or opaque roof and gable covers, PVC or hard-sided and glazed wall panels, levelled cassette flooring, walkway links, lighting and all the interior finishing touches.

For this particular private event at Highclere Castle, the client required our 12m wide x 18m Losberger Frame Marquee, with a 3m x 12m Arcum Walkway Link to the Castle, with a solid and levelled cassette floor and new needlecord carpet throughout.

Both structures were finished with transparent roof and gable covers to offer an abundance of natural day light during the day and come the evening, the dark night’s sky and stunning event lighting became the perfect combination.

The inside of the large structure was transformed with flat ivory wall linings to two sides and Panoramic PVC Window Walls to the remainder. This afforded the guests the luxury of soaking up their beautiful winter surroundings, whilst enjoying the warmth of being inside. Indeed, maintaining a consistent and comfortable temperature throughout the structure is always an absolute must for such high calibre events.

To create a dramatic welcome for the guests, two Gas Flambeauxs were positioned at the main entrance, while the castle and surrounding trees were lit to stunning effect.

We think you’ll agree that the overall effect was quite impressive and we look forward to returning to Highclere Castle in the not too distant future.
