Sourcing Information

The Following is what I feel were the most useful propping purchases/contacts.

SOFAS: The most difficult things to prop for this show was furniture, in particular the black leather sofas, In the end I was able to compromise and the RCS buidings staff allowed us to borrow the sofas from the student break area in SLS1, as getting the AGOS sofas was not possible.

CLEAR OFFICE CHAIR The transparent chair we used came from the 'burrel collection cafe' they have a large stock of these chairs and were very willing to lend us one.

IKEA WHITE TABLE On this occasion we were unable to get a donation from IKEA however the white table we used was only £30 from the ikea online store.

MOET BOTTLES We managed to source empty but sealed moet champagne bottles from 29 restaurant at royal exchange sq. They get display bottles in every month, the good thing about the moet bottles we got is the plastic labels coverd most of the bottle, meaning if they dropped broken glass would be contained.


The Country Wife had a fairly simple system setup, with a main FOH system and two spot speakers. Early phasing issues were resolved by running the system in an LRLR format. This resulted in far improved coverage and reduced phasing issues.
