The Revolving Stage Company supplied 4 revolving stages for this event; in the main marquee, a 6m revolving stage was installed and used for the purpose of changing between a stage area for the speaker and a control area for the music acts.
Outside in the ground of the Royal Naval College, a purpose built podium was used to support a 4.7m diameter revolving stage with a 3.6m diameter revolving stage positioned on top of that. The whole display was a representation of the solar system with acrobats performing within the display. The lower revolve supported 4 arms which rotated the moons in one direction while the main sphere was rotated the opposite direction on the 3.6m revolve. Also in the courtyard a 1.8m dia. revolve was used to rotate a single acrobat.
