In anticipation of its phased move to the 75,000sq.m Highbridge development in Uxbridge, ARRI GB was on royal duty last month when Her Majesty The Queen unveiled a sculpture in the town centre, of which ARRI was one of the major sponsors.

Commissioned by Hillingdon Arts Association, 'Anticipation' was the work of Welsh-based sculptress Anita Lafford. Crowds lined the streets outside The Chimes Shopping Centre in the town centre as Her Majesty The Queen and HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, performed their royal duty and the sculpture was revealed. ARRI GB were represented by managing director, Renos Louka, and finance director, Sean Leone.

The company will begin its three-phase move into its new three-storey home at the end of August. It has already forged links with the local Brunel University - which recently installed a media suite of television and video studios - and will offer further training facilities and equipment.
