Railway Children set on their way at Cov

June 22, 2017

 

A new stage production of family classic The Railway Children premiered in Exeter last week - with a set sent all the way from Coventry.

 Designed by Tony-Award nominated theatre designer Timothy Bird, the set was brought to life by Belgrade Production Services, the Belgrade's set and costume manufacturing workshops based in Red Lane, Coventry.

 

 It's the latest successful commission for the BPS team of highly-skilled carpenters, welders and scenic artists, who have in recent years built a national and even international reputation for their work. Their client list includes The National Theatre, The New York Museum of Modern Art and Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.

 Timothy Bird, who specialises in blending art with technology, said, "Having worked with Belgrade Production Services on a number of shows, we knew they would be a good partner. Excellent construction quality married with experienced theatrical problem-solving has yet again made them a joy to work with. The icing on the cake, as ever, being the superb scenic paint quality delivered by Tim Murley and his team of expert artists."

 Tim Murley, (pictured above) Head of Scenic Art for the Belgrade, said: "It was a challenge to marry our scenic work with the printed and projection elements of this show, but the results are a great-looking set with a crossover of illustrative style and realistic-looking textured set pieces."
