3 Queens in River Dance

REM have a long tradition of working on major events in Liverpool but not quite as long as Cunard, who established the first scheduled service across the Atlantic in1840 and every year since, Cunard vessels have crossed and re-crossed the Atlantic without fail.

The historic 175th anniversary was celebrated in enormous style with the first-ever three Queens meeting on the Mersey on 25th May.

On 24th May,   Queen Mary 2 arrived at the Liverpool Cruise Terminal to be joined the next morning, by her sister-ships Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, creating an unprecedented three Queens spectacular.

Having performed a series of synchronised manoeuvres , the celebration finished with the three ships, the largest passenger ships ever to muster together on the River Mersey, lined up across the river just 130 metres apart as the Red Arrows performed a fly-past overhead.

As anyone who has worked on an event in Liverpool will know, this is a city that loves to party and the celebrations lasted three days with an estimated audience of 1.3 million at various locations throughout the area. Spectacular lighting projections illuminated the Cunard Building whilst Pier Head provided music stages, buskers and impromptu street theatre to create a festival atmosphere.

Having provided site and production management for the long weekend and with a busy summer schedule ahead, none of the REM team will actually be going on a Trans – Atlantic cruise but it is a fantastic feeling to be a part of such an historic occasion.

Caption; when it is reported that every vantage point was taken, we are often a little cynical about such reports. But, our MD Mike has evidence that on the Mersey that was the case, as this picture illustrates. We assume the two people actually knew each other!
