AROUND THE WORLD OCEAN RACE
SKATING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND!
For the first time in more than a decade the world's premier yacht race and toughest sailing challenge, the Volvo Ocean Race will sail past British soil. This round the world race will host it's 'Race Village' in Cardiff Bay this May and with a range of entertainment and race-themed attractions it's an event not to be missed.
The Danco team will be in Cardiff to welcome teams to the bay, providing clearspan marquees for the Media Centre and Welsh Hospitality Pavilion. Having begun the expedition from Alicante in October last year, competitors won't set foot on welsh ground but the village will expect thousands of visitors over the two week period.
Danco took to the ice again last season assisting with the creation of magical structures for ice rinks across the UK. Over the festive period the team erected 40 structures covering 150,000 square feet; enough to accommodate 48,000 people at any one time!
Along with exterior clearspan structures, we also create bespoke flooring systems, lighting and decorations to get you in the festive spirit and make venues sparkle.
We also teamed up with our sister company, Icescape Ltd on a number of projects including Tropicana in Weston-Super-Mare where we built a 30 metre wide clear span structure; the largest covered winter ice rink in the UK. Welcoming over 120,000 visitors through its doors, we're already looking forward to returning to its unique beachfront location later this year.

"What a fantastic addition to the town for the festive season. We went on a night and I could not fault anything. Skate hire organised, access to ice is easy and lots of Christmas photo opportunities. Would most definitely recommend a visit.'' Becky Davis
Following on from last years success, we have seen a surge in transparent clearspan marquee installations for cricket clubs in 2018. Despite the recent Siberian blasts, county teams have been training outdoors whilst keeping warm in our temporary structures in preparation for the big season ahead.
Graham, one of our senior yard managers of 11 years is also an experienced BMX rider who started up the DTracing team 5 years ago. Following the closure of a mostly adult race team, Graham wanted to give younger riders the chance to get into a BMX race team, including more girls and newer riders who very rarely get the opportunity to join. Over the years they have had a British champion, gained lots of national podium positions and have 4 riders who have qualified for the World Championships in Baku this year.
Danco are pleased to support the team for the fifth year wishing all 25 riders the best of luck for the season!

CRICKETERS KEEP WARM THANKS TO OUR TRANSPARENT CLEARSPAN SOLUTIONS!
"Having never worked in an environment created by the marquee from Danco, the learning curve was steep but it soon became clear what a great facility it was to work in. In a 2 week period we were able to produce practice cricket pitches in mid February that without it would have been impossible.
A normal lead time for pre season pitches would be around 4 weeks and the marquee halfed that. Throw in some pretty extreme late winter weather and it's benefits have shown through, giving us outdoor practice in poor weather and giving the players good quality pitches when getting outside completely has become a battle with those extreme elements.
The final marker in all these things are the players themselves, without doubt they have enjoyed the challenge and the standard of pitches we have been able to produce for them, all of which wouldn't be possible without the structure supplied by Danco" Simon Lee, Head Groundsman SCCC
‘’I've always made the team aim for enjoyment and fun before the need to win. And encourage all the families to get involved making it a fun environment for mums, dads and the kids. A team run on smiles wins by miles’’ Graham, Founder of DTracing
