Millions of viewers saw the work of a Halifax events team on live television at the weekend.

Prego Events supplied a bridge for boxer Audley Harrison and his partner Natalie Lowe on BBC’s hit Saturday-night entertainment show Strictly Come Dancing.

The pair were given at score of 27 for their performance of the Vienesse Waltz.

Around 10 million people watched the show, which now gets higher viewing figures than The X-Factor.

Sarah Petty, managing director of Prego Events said she was thrilled to have been asked to provide the bridge.

“The call came last Tuesday from Stictly who said they needed a bridge for Audley,” she said. “We needed to get it to London in time for the dress rehearsal so it was quite a tight turn around.”

The bridge had to be built to fit in with the style of the dance and the rest of the stage andto hold Olypmic gold medal super heavy weight Audley’s 6ft 5inch, 18-stone frame.

““We jokingly call all our guys in the Workshop our Prop Superstars but the skills they have and dedication they show to do these sorts of projects mean they really live up to their name,” Sarah said

“We are very proud to have such a wonderful team at Prego.”
