WSP, BAA and Argent have joined forces once more for the Battle of the Construction Industry Bands, following the success of last year’s band showcase.

The event will take place on 1 October at Argent’s German Gymnasium on King’s Cross Central’s development site and is open to all construction industry company in-house rock bands.

Bill Price, Wild Sex Party member and director at WSP, said: “So many of us in the construction industry enjoy playing music together as an activity outside our day-to-day professional work. The Battle of the Bands aims to recognise and encourage our industry’s hidden ‘talent’ with some healthy competition and a lot of fun. We’ll also be raising money for charity.”

Last year’s event raised over £4,000 for the British Red Cross China Earthquake Appeal and The Copenhagen Youth Project, a local Kings Cross youth charity.

This year’s Best Band will get to nominate a charity of their choice, and the organisers are hoping to significantly increase the revenue generated.

Companies wishing to enter their band should contact Martina Dvorani at to obtain further information and an entry form.
