The Event

When it comes to award ceremonies it’s all about glitz, glamour, and style. The Celebrating Success Awards is no exception and this year it was better than ever.


The Celebrating Success Awards celebrates the outstanding efforts made by the Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service staff on a daily basis to make the communities safer places to live, work and visit.


There were a number of achievement accolades including the Individual Achievement Award, the Award for Innovation and the prestigious Chief Fire Officer’s Exceptional Achievement Award. The event was hosted by TV presenter Sian Lloyd.

Drake AV helped to make the awards a success by providing the following:


Production of a number of video clips of the award nominations, these were used to introduce each category at the Awards Ceremony. The short video clips were produced by interviewing personnel nominating their chosen contender on site at Fire Stations in Mid and West Wales. An animated graphic which included an image of a flame flickering introduced each category.


Drake AV designed an awards backdrop to suit the prestigious event and the large venue. Coloured lighting effects highlighted the awards stage backdrop, the tables and the Art Deco architecture of the Brangwyn Hall.


Sound reinforcement ensured presenters were heard clearly and music stings for the awards walk-up music were atmospheric and powerful.

What they said...

" Drake AV provided the AV for our AGM in July and I was really happy with the service received. Helen met me at the venue before the meeting to discuss our requirements and the AV kit they provided was well thought out, suited the venue and the meeting. On the day, the team set up within the agreed timescales and were very helpful on site "
