Channel Tunnel Inauguration
For Eurotunnel, Zap managed “San Frontier” a ten-day cross-Channel community festival to celebrate the official inauguration of the Channel Tunnel.

This included closing down half of Folkestone for a Carnival on 7 May, which attracted an audience of 30,000. This culminated in a £150,000 firework display fired from barges in the Channel to live music performed by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Carl Davies on the cliff top.
