CHATTERIS-based theatre drapes manufacturer Cameo Curtains Ltd were called upon at short notice to run-up some 24-foot long skirts for the backing singers at last Saturday’s Boyzone Concert at the O2 Arena.

Soames Springthorpe, sales director, said: “It was really exciting for our staff to know that they were helping to make a great concert, seen by thousands, even more spectacular.”

The shimmering skirts, made from silver lame, unfurled as the singers were lifted into the air on stage.

“This is not the first time Cameo has been asked to play a supporting role,” Soames added. “Sir Cliff Richard and Strictly Come Dancing have also used drapes and garments made by our highly skilled sewing room; a nice diversion from our traditional business of stage and Theatre curtains.”
