Cameo’s Curtains open at The Barbican

A BENWICK company has just completed a prestigious contact with Europe’s largest performing arts centre.

Cameo Curtains Ltd, the Benwick-based theatre drapes manufacturer, has supplied and installed new flame-proofed curtains for the newly refurbished Cinema 1 in The Barbican, London.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Cameo to showcase the quality and competitiveness that still can be delivered by a British manufacture operating at the highest level,” said Soames Springthorpe, sales director.

“We knew when The Barbican first contacted us that it would be a challenge, having to contend with limited access to the building during the Olympics and also the size and weight of the curtains, at 65kgs each.”

This is the third high profile contract the curtain manufacturer has won in the past 12 months, with the others being RADA and The Royal Academy of Dance.
