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

First time working at a festival and no idea what to bring/wear/do? We've got you covered with our top tips:

1. Always bring your own loo roll. ALWAYS
2. Pack lots of comfy clothes for your shifts. No one wants to feel uncomfortable when things get busy. That sparkly two-piece can wait for the evening 💃
3. EXPLORE! Even if you're by yourself, a festival always has so much you can see and do at any time of day or night.
4. Make friends. Chances are you'll see them again at another festival 🎪
5. Invest in quality camping gear if you can. The initial blow to the bank account will be worth it in the long run!

This summer, we took on Site Management at the Royal Crescent in Bath which hosted @michaelbuble for two nights to a sold out crowd. @aeg_presents took various global artists on a tour of the UK to the most picturesque settings we have to offer. 🌳

14,000 people filled the park along with many more locals lining the perimeter of the site to listen in to the incredible show! Credit to Ewa Korda for this breath-taking view of what NR Events managed to deliver alongside Senbla, LarMac Live, and Site & Stage. 🔨

After the excitement of the Lionesses winning the Women's Euros last night, it's only right we share how we've been a part of some events championing the next generation of female footballers! 🦁

Across May and June, we helped the team at 1851 Trust to deliver their STEM Football Festival events to schools around the country to help promote #ChangeTheGame and the perception around women's football. ⚽

As an all-female team here at NR Events, we understand how important it is to encourage other young women to chase a career in the industry they love even though it may seem to be dominated by men! It was great to bring fun-filled activities to the next generation of people in STEM. 🦾
