In 2011 Worldskills commissioned a small creative team to devise their opening ceremony to be staged at the O2 Arena, London. The performance was watched by an audience of 9000 international competitors. The performance involved hundreds of performers and choirs from Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England, including 350 primary school children from Southwark, London.
