I would expect that the c/forms are in-situ already, just learn how to use a cherry-picker and string it all on catenery wire.

Job's as good as yours! (Unless the council want you to be CHAS registered)

Some years back we agreed to festoon a Christmas tree on a traffic island in Brum, fed from library under the road. Didn't give the job much thought, library people mentioned tall steps.

Turns out to be a ginormous fir tree from Norway , we had hired a tower but it was really awkward, needed two towers really to drape the festoon all around. Hard to move the tower on grass. Various other sparks and builders who knew us, driving round the island shouting obsenities and generally taking the pee.
