Paralympics Closing Ceremony

Called ‘The Festival of Flame’, the Paralympics Closing Ceremony was broadcast to an estimated global audience of 750 million. The event included a live one-off concert by Coldplay with Rihanna, and over 1,000 able-bodied and disabled performers.


Momentum provided engineering support to the design of three themed stages and their associated machinery.


The sundial stage included elaborate scrolling metalwork, and during the event the clock face lifted on a cantilevered crane to emphasise the passing of time.
