Let there be light
SEC was proud to be the principal contractor in lighting up Hanley Town Hall. More than 200 LED lights have been installed in this innovative lighting project to illuminate the Town Hall, a Grade 1 Listed Building. To mark the occasion, during the weekend of 26-28 September 2008 special events were held in Stoke-on-Trent to celebrate the national launch of the Cultural Olympiad. In Hanley, the Town Hall was lit up with 200 LED lights in the colours of the Olympic flag.
The Cultural Olympiad is intended to be, as the founder of the modern Olympic movement Pierre de Coubertin once said, 'a wedding of sport and art'.
So for the next four years until London 2012, cultural projects will be developed around the UK which are inspired by the Olympic spirit.
