The British Empire Exhibition and Empire Stadium
In 1922 Bagnalls were commissioned by building contractor, Sir Robert McAlpine, to deliver the painting, sign writing, scenic work and decorating for the British Empire Exhibition. Over 200 tons of paint were used to decorate the great palaces and giant structures, as well as hundreds of gallons of enamels and enormous quantities of gold leaf and gold paint.
In addition, the company were commissioned to paint the Empire Stadium, known to many as Wembley Stadium, in time for the cup final held in April 1923. Bagnalls has since worked on the pathway to the new Wembley stadium as well as externally coating the nearby Wembley Arena.
