A Thetford company has been the engineering know how behind some iconic sculptures which provided the backdrop to the current Robbie Williams tour.

Warren Services was commissioned to provide trucks and structures designed by Brilliant Stages which contained giant sculptures of the artists’s head as a stage backdrop and which were very much part of the live show.

William Bridgman, managing director of the Fison Way company, said: “We didn’t see the full plans to start with and once we were underway the project was rapidly added to.

“Because a lot of the build was carried out at our assembley site we were able to see the true scale of the project which was very exciting for our team.”

The designs were with the company in early March and the job was completed in early June.

The company, which has a staff of 90, made the internal wokings, the trucks that carried the heads and stairways used by the artists in the show.

Warren Services, which has a turnover of more than £6million, also provided the iconic structure for the giant metal man OM during the Take That Progress Tour.

The Robbie Williams Take The Crown Tour is now in its final month and the live show from Estonia will be beamed through cinemas in the UK, including Bury’s Cineworld, on August 20.
