Streuth! Angel of the North
hijacked for Australia Day

Here at John Mason International Movers, we give thousands of UK residents a ‘down under’ lifestyle every year (We’ve moved over 50,000 people to Australia in our history), so we always take the time to celebrate Australia Day in a special way.

This year is no exception – to mark the bond that exists between the UK and Australia, and to bring celebrations to our home in the north, we decided to hijack the iconic landmark, the Angel of the North.

With open arms we wish everyone a Happy Australia Day.

LOOKING FOR A LIFE DOWN UNDER?

How we made it happen

Our team of ten stealthily transported and installed, with a hydraulic mast, a 15.5ft bush hat complete with corks onto the Angel. Projecting images from the ground and filming with drones, we transformed the statue into an epic celebration of Australia Day.

Designer of the Angel of the North, Anthony Gormley, has previously spoken out against exploiting the landmark in this way. We've done this because we want to send a message of friendship to the world. We want to put a smile on peoples faces (including Anthony Gormley) and we hope everyone is wowed by our antics.

Last year, we took our celebrations to London in the form of letting Crocodile Dundee loose on the streets. Check out the campaign video here.

Some of our Customer Reviews

If anyone asks me to recommend a removal company, you and your team are absolutely first on my list. You guys have been super helpful plus, all the way from initial contact to the end and so approachable.

Surrey, UK to Sydney, Australia - December 2020

We have been so impressed with the care taken and the quality of packing, and also realise perhaps how lucky we have been to instigate the move when we did, and then to ask John Mason to do it for us.

D.P. Leeds, UK to Perth, Australia – November 2020

Absolutely one of the best movers I have worked with. Pleasant helpful admin staff and the delivery drivers were absolute angels sorting and moving the boxes where I asked them to. Arrived exactly when they said it would.

Selby, UK to Sydney, Australia - September 2020
