EFS Europe to Support Prestigious Opera Holland Park

Held in the leafy surrounds of Holland Park in West London, Opera Holland Park is now a firm fixture on the operatic events calendar. The summer season of opera is hosted in a temporary venue built adjacent to the ruins of Holland House. It uses a modern canopy to provide covered seating to the stage and 1,000 audience members, with the terrace and steps to Holland House used as reception and hospitality areas for guests. EFS Europe will supply and install nearly 600m² of its stud-backed Club Carpet, which will be fitted in all of the outdoor terraced areas. The stud back allows surface water to drain beneath the carpet, preventing a soggy top in the event of rain. A further 1,140m² of EFS Europe’s Podium Flat Velour will be installed to all of the seating areas with the auditorium, as well as several other indoor areas both front of house and backstage. Installation will take place on the 4th, 5th and 6th May, with the carpet remaining in place for the duration on the summer season. The 2015 season of Opera Holland Park will see the company stage six different shows: Il Tricttico, Flight, Aida, Lakmé, L’amore dei tre Re, and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. EFS Europe’s Business Development Manager Jeremy Simpson commented on the project saying: “The work we undertake for Opera Holland Park showcases the versatility, durability and quality of our carpet products. Events of this nature require only the very best, and we are proud that EFS Europe has been selected within that category.”
