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

✏️We are brushing up our CAD skills for the summer.
CAD (Comupter aided design) is used for drawing out site plans for events, so we are always looking at CAD plans when we are site managing! We`ve been following the @Event Site Design Ltd course and are loving it! ✏️

⛸️ Cheltenham Ice Rink - Sustainability Report 2023 ⛸️

At the beginning of the year, the Ice Rink in Cheltenham finished another successful season of skating sessions, this year with an improved focus on sustainability 🌍

We worked with @visitcheltenham and the suppliers of the Ice Rink to collate all production, transport, waste, serveware, graphics information and inputted this into TRACE. TRACE provides a sleek software to understand exactly which areas of the event are the highest contributors to the carbon output, which we were then able to format into a visual presentation. This will allow for the organising team and suppliers to work on improving for next time and reducing the event`s carbon impact event further.

For more information about the ice rink please see: https://www.cheltenham.gov.uk/news/article/2899/cheltenham_christmas_ice_rink_reports_big_economic_boost_and_environmental_efficiency_measures

🔬 As part of our ongoing training to support our roles on site, last week we took part in a day of online training with @theloop_uk We spent the day on their `Responding to drug use at music festivals & outdoor events` course to help us ensure our knowledge was on top form ahead of festival season. We had a fantastic experience and some important conversations with other industry professionals about keeping everyone safe. 🔬

🎪 5% VAT for Festivals 🎪

@aif_uk are asking the UK Government to lower VAT on music festival ticket sales from 20% to 5% for a temporary period of three years.

As of last week, 21 UK festivals have announced having to postpone, cancel, or completely close this year. AIF are predicting that the UK may lose over 100 festivals in 2024 due to rising costs.

We have witnessed the damage that the pandemic, increasing supply chain costs, Brexit, and the energy crisis have caused to the once thriving UK festival scene. In order to keep our most-loved events alive, the government must take action now!
