In June, the WashPod team installed a Compact unit, on location, in an iconic grade II* listed former cotton mill complex in Bolton where it will be a temporary washroom for contestants in Children’s BBC’s search for Britain’s Best Young Artist. The TV show is using the amazing attic as its base and the WashPod is perfect for these heritage surroundings as it’s plug n’ play and can be installed and removed, without adaptation, in less than a day. It’s also fully accessible so suitable for any of the contestants.
The Swan Lane Mills made up the largest spinning mill in the world in the early 1900s and have distinctive architecture designed by Stott & Sons of Oldham. This attic is larger than a football pitch and its cavernous space should inspire the show’s contestants, aged 9 -14 years, who will be battling it out with their creativity and flair over several episodes. Visiting art masters and resident judges will follow the youngsters through a number of challenges before the winning artwork is displayed in iconic galleries around the country.
