Kraken emerges from Secret Garden Party lake

Pirate Technics once again surpass themselves by the construction of an enormous Kraken destroying a boat for the Secret Garden Party lake stage in 2013.

The scaled monster had animatronic eyes and improbable tentacles pulling the dance floor boat to pieces.

In case that wasn't enough, it was burnt spectacularly with a music-synced laser and firework show on the Saturday night!

Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

Pirate Technics were commissioned by the Royal Horticultural Society to create a windmill for Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2013. It is a 7m tall straw windmill with dried flower stripes, a seating area at the base and working sails.

It was situated near the Champagne Bar at the event, the weather was glorious all week and everything was a huge success!

There's a picture of our windmill in this slideshow on the BBC of Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2013.

Also, look out for the windmill at Tatton Park Flower Show later in the year!

Pirate Technics broke their Glastonbury cherry, not once but twice in the same year! Our pagodas were backstage in the Park field and we built some Tree Figures for the entrance to the stone circle.
