I designed ambient banners for a midsummer night event at the Feathers Inn, Hedley on the Hill. The 7×5ft (2.1×1.5m) piece seen here, manufactured by HFE Signs, featured a trompe l’oeil ormolu picture frame and provided a warm backdrop to the main seating area that took on an extra lustre as night fell.
In a marquee filling the award-winning pub’s beer garden, diners enjoyed an Elizabethan meal created by chef Rhian Cradock interspersed with performances by a local theatre group of extracts from A Midsummer Night’s Dream adapted for the occasion by writer Brynn Younger Banks.
The banners were designed to be re-used at future events, including a deli stall on Newcastle’s Quayside during the regional EAT! Festival. More pictures below.
