For the past 20 years Austen Lewis have been working directly for the Battle of the Flowers in Jersey. Before our time, let’s just say things were run a little different, incorporating a wide range of timber pallets and lorry trailers to seat their guests.
Over 20 years ago things started to get a little out of hand at the Battle of the Flowers, with people sitting on barrels of hay and fold up benches throwing flowers into the crowd, up steps Austen Lewis.
Austen Lewis was handed the chance to pitch a new style of seating that was not only tiered but safe for the crowds and floats. We presented our unique system resulting in winning the contract and keeping it for the past 20 years.
