A series of graduation ceremonies, smart reception parties, and a rare public speaking appearance by one of the world’s most famous scientists all took place under the roof of the multi-purpose temporary graduation structure installed by GL events on behalf of Imperial College London.

At GL events, it’s our privilege to provide temporary graduation ceremony structures, graduation marquees and tiered graduation seating in support of schools, colleges and universities up and down the UK. Among their number is Imperial College London, which boasts a number of campuses throughout London and the South East, and is consistently rated among the world’s best universities.

In keeping with its prestigious reputation, Imperial chose to hire a glamorous temporary graduation structure from GL events, which installed a bespoke temporary venue on-site at the college’s beautiful South Kensington campus, in the heart of London’s smart, central museum district.

Our premium temporary event building was in place upon the college’s Queen’s Lawn for ten days, where it was overlooked by the historic Queen’s Tower. During this time, it accommodated a procession of daytime and evening events; including graduation ceremonies, presentations, and celebrations. The jewel in the crown was an incredibly rare public speaking appearance by Professor Stephen Hawking – a high-profile occasion which was attractively and effectively accommodated by GL events’ temporary event structure.

Our response to Imperial’s brief was to install two seamlessly connected, hard-sided temporary structures, creating a vast, flexible, 35 X 40msq space. Effective event lighting was integral to enhancing this sense of open space. We installed a beautiful clearview roof, which was embellished by strands of glittering fairy lights and coloured roof-wash lighting, enhanced by discreet uplighters which provided a range of interchangeable colour programmes.

GL events’ heating solution consisted of discreet, transparent duct channels, which spanned the length of the structure to perfectly compliment its transparent roof and further enhance the full range of variable lighting and colour schemes. Finally, we installed smart and durable carpets, a high specification PA system, and staging throughout the venue.

GL events offers a wide range of temporary graduation structures, graduation marquees for hire, tiered spectator seating for graduations and complete solutions for all kinds of university, school and college events.

Whatever the weather, day or night, we’re thoroughly experienced in providing creative total, hard-working solutions for graduation ceremonies, events and celebrations – whatever your available space. Why not incorporate catering areas, reception zones, washrooms, or temporary dancefloors to make your graduation event a memorable success?
