Don’t Unleash the Beast

A Children's game show for CITV. Produced by CPL's Executive producers Julie Kelling, Vix Harrison and Emma Hyman this immersive set includes multiple physical and mental challenges for a team of 3 10-12 year olds. I designed a complete cave complex in the 'kingdom of Halian' on multiple levels at Manchester Arena and this was set up and filmed throughout August 2020 in the midst of the COVID crisis. Fantastic build quality by Nic Wareham's team at Take One Scenic this occupied six sculptors for two months creating fabulous rock chambers and tunnels.

Series 2 saw the whole set transfer to Manchester Studios 1 for another successful run during July / August 2021. New big game in zone to follow when series airs in 2022
