Cheltenham Science Festival 2022

Here at NR Events we had been busy working away over the last few months for the Cheltenham Science Festival. We were lucky enough to be handed the production from Cheltenham Festivals, to create a memorable event for many families, school groups, and science enthusiasts locally as well as nationally.   The festival ran from 7th – 12th June and featured numerous talks and presentations from ‘how to hack a car’ to wild electricity displays and interactive VR headset demonstrations. There were plenty of free areas to explore too, such as the Arcade, which focused on technology and gaming and the Makershack which showcased the ‘DIY’ side of science. Hartpury College, GE, and many other sponsors hosted numerous activities and if you still hadn’t got your fill of new knowledge, then Waterstones had a whole range of informative reads in their on-site bookshop.   Production is an integral part of any successful festival and event and we knew we had a large task on our hands with the scale of the Science Festival. It was important for us to nail even the tiniest of details and be hands on when it came to building and taking down the site. We had to think about everything from the size and shape of each marquee to how many fence panels we would need for the site perimeter.   Working on a new project like this was a huge learning curve and the resurgence of full-scale events in 2022 made our job especially difficult. Considering the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee the weekend before and the limited supply of event necessities, such as tents, portable toilet units and more, it was a struggle to source some specific items that the festival is used to having. However, it allowed us to get to work with different supply companies and force us to find alternatives, which in some cases worked out for the better.   We look forward to hopefully working with the amazing team at Cheltenham Festivals in the future. We wish them luck with the rest of their festival season doing Music and Literature!    Check out the official Cheltenham Science Festival highlights video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOMDVXNuFWU

💥 2023 Best Moment 💥

Emily`s best moment of the year was Site Management at Cheltenham Science Festival 🧪

"Four weeks on site is tiring but so rewarding when you get to see a show come together from the first panel of fencing being put up to the morning of the opening day when there is such a buzz in the air. We worked alongside a whole range of people and the job came with a load of great memories!"

✨ 2023 Best Moment ✨

Natasha`s best moment of the year was co-ordinating the living wall that made the stunning backdrop for the British Film Designers Guild Awards 🪴

"My favourite moment was seeing the room come to life at BFDG awards. After weeks of logicstical wrangling to make the whole concept of a screen in a living wall work, getting the scale right, the sign offs, broken venue lifts for install and the whole crazy idea just coming together was magical. It is such a privilege to work on such a creative event with fantastic suppliers. Although it was slightly scary when the whole wall wall lifted from the floor to hang from the rigging structure!"

⚡ 2023 Best Moment ⚡

Alice`s best moment of the year was the Cheltenham Food & Drink Week with @cheltbid 🎶

""For me one of my favourite moments of the year was working on Cheltenham Food and Drink week, programming the music was really exciting for me and seeing the show all come together knowing how much work had been put in by myself and the team was really lovely. The great response from the public of all ages across town made all the hard work worth it.""
