WW1 Flash Mob preludes the Giant Spectacular in Liverpool, UK

Published on Thu Jul 24, 2014 by

A flash mob, street theatre piece preludes the Giant Spectacular. Unexpectedly a period car & bicycles arrive in various locations around the city. And an actor playing Lord Kitchener, gives a speech to the men of Liverpool to take up arms. The show over the forthcoming weekend is by French street theatre experts Royal De Luxe. Formed in 1979 and led by writer and director Jean-Luc Courcoult.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
