S+H Technical has supplied specialist draping and ‘soft’ lighting effects to several high profile TV shows recently including Strictly Come Dancing’s Blackpool special as well as for the regular weekly show broadcast from Elstree Studios; the main Children In Need telethon studio; talent competition Stars in Their Eyes back on air in 2015; new ITV talent show Get Your Act Together and Bette Midler’s ITV special One Night Only.
During the Strictly season for the BBC S+H is working with set and scenic designer Patrick Doherty for whom the company is supplying around 6000 Pea-Lights for the regular weekly episodes broadcast from Eltree Studios. S+H has now been supplying the Strictly shows with specialist drapes and starcloth products for eight years.
Get Your Act Together is a new ITV talent concept being recorded at London Studios on the South Bank. S+H is supplying more Pea-Light on black cloth, approximately 50m of which is wrapping the set and custom silver ruched drapes have been produced to mask the three set arches.

“We are very proud to have been involved in supplying such a fantastic show for such a great cause. It was also great to be working with Dominic again and see the hugely dynamic and creative ways in which he uses draping, ‘softs’ and lighting effects,” said S+H’s Terry Murtha.
