When we are asked to provide AV equipment, we are always happy to oblige. Especially for our friends at Waterstones Piccadilly, who were hosting their prize for best children’s author. We set up a 60″ Plasma screen to show the shortlist of books which, in turn was connected to our Apple laptop to play the prepared DVD.
We chose our Qube Audio 208 loudspeakers which are perfectly suited to the newly refurbished champagne bar on the 5th floor of Waterstone’s flagship store. Using our trusty Beyerdynamic wireless microphones on the stage, the Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne announced the winner. The prize went to Katie Davies for her book ‘The Great Hamster Massacre’. Thanks as ever to Silv and all the events team who made our life a bit easier.
