Chrisp Street Market
Market Square, London
Since 2007 this project has always commenced the same way: it begins with the careful selection of two trees that are matching in shape and size. This is not as simple as it sounds as real Christmas trees very rarely grow as matching pairs. These personally chosen premium grade Christmas trees are tagged and reserved in August in order to give our client the best possible selection.
Our purpose built stands are prepared and given a fresh coat of paint and the low voltage LED lights are PAT tested. The trees are transported onto site using a 7.5 ton lorry in the early hours of the morning. In accordance with the site specific method statement and risk assessment the lorry is marshalled (one person at front and back) through the market square. The Frosts Large Christmas Tree installation team work closely with the Chrisp market square resident electricians to ensure the transformers and electricity supply are out of reach of the general public. The electricity supply is at a high level so much of the installation takes place using specialist platform ladders.
For the past 5 years many of the installation team members have remained the same, and on completion have been known to enjoy the traditional East London delicacies of jellied eels or pie and mash.
