It was a busy weekend for the Fonix team last weekend. The Fonix crew were out in force around the country providing LED Screens and audio-visual equipment for some of the UK’s biggest events.

The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is the world’s largest military air show, held annually at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire. The event is in support of The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust. The show typically attracts a total of 150,000 to 160,000 spectators over the course of a weekend. Fonix supplied a 22 square metre mobile LED screen along with audio equipment hire.
