Doing a Guest Talk at University less than 6 months after Graduating

In May I finished my three years at the University of Gloucestershire studying Music Business. I then pretty much went straight into full time work at NR Events. This was a more unconventional path compared to the typical post-university scenario; to have a busy summer full of holidays and excitement, but it doesn’t mean that I didn’t still get to do just that!ย 

My summer months consisted of working a multitude of diverse events such as the Cheltenham Science Festival, managing the Wimbledon screen on behalf of Cheltenham BID as well as doing evictions at Secret Garden Party and Glastonbury! After all that I was back settling into the office and full time work life in Cheltenham.

Fast forward to this week, less than six months from submitting my final assignment as a student, and I found myself back on campus at University to take part in the music and sound part of Festival of Creatives. I appeared alongside three other graduates as well as a whole host of industry professionals to be on two engaging Q&A panel sessions and get stuck into some networking. The Q&A panels provided students an opportunity to ask myself and two other graduates anything. We discussed various aspects of life after university and shared valuable advice on navigating the journey into our current roles.

I felt very privileged to be invited back so quickly to talk about my degree and professional journey so far. Being able to share my experiences and insights with students that are in the exact position I was in the last three years was very gratifying. Being able to provide guidance, answer questions, and engage in meaningful conversations after the panels was particularly rewarding.

โ›ธ๏ธ Cheltenham Ice Rink - Sustainability Report 2023 โ›ธ๏ธ

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 ๐ŸŒ

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

๐ŸŽช 5% VAT for Festivals ๐ŸŽช

@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!
