Sky’s Open crew to be housed in a carrot field

‘Snoozeboxes’ order of the day

 Sky’s Open crew to be housed in a carrot field

Sky’s vast 750 strong TV crew will be housed in a carrot field. Here’s where they will be staying.

This is the first time that Sky will have broadcast The Open, and clearly they are leaving nothing to chance with a huge crew.

So how do you accommodate such an army, without spending an absolute fortune? Well, the answer is ‘Snoozeboxes’, which are portable sleeping cabins made from old shipping containers.

The field off Monktonhill Road and opposite Lochgreen House Hotel was used last season to sprout carrots, but now they are being prepared for a rather different crop.
