Local Events in Cheltenham, “The Festival Town”

We are privileged to be involved in many of the local events that take place in our hometown of Cheltenham. Working with Cheltenham Borough Council, Marketing Cheltenham, Cheltenham BID, and The Cheltenham Trust, recent events have celebrated sport in the UK and competitions that receive worldwide coverage. Over the last couple of months we have helped deliver the Queen’s Baton Relay through Cheltenham and a large screening of Wimbledon in the local entertainment complex, The Brewery Quarter.

 

5th July – Queen’s Baton Relay

Baton bearers and the Commonwealth Games team making their way up to Pittville Pump Room for the Queen's Baton Relay in Cheltenham.

The Queen’s Baton Relay visited all 72 nations across a 294-day journey which landed in Cheltenham on the evening of the 5th July 2022. The baton passed through the south coast and south west before reaching Cheltenham on the second day of the tour, which was greeted by a crowd of residents cheering on the local baton-bearers. The baton-bearers were nominated by friends and family for their contribution to the community giving the town 6 representatives for the short run from the Prince of Wales Stadium to the Pittvill

e Pump Room.

 

The afternoon consisted of live music entertainment from a DJ as well as a pianist, BBQ food was on offer to the public and a children’s play area whilst the atmosphere built before the relay commenced. NR Events’ role in this was to liaise with each venue as well as the Commonwealth Games tour team about the most suitable route to take and how the crowd would be managed. We also sourced the audio equipment and assisted in the setup and management of the VIP area which included guests such as the Cheltenham Town Mayor and local respected business owners.

27th June-10th July – Wimbledon Screening

Wimbledon is one of the most infamous sporting events in British history and so, to celebrate this, Cheltenham Borough Council set up plans to host a large screening of the tournament in the town’s favourite entertainment complex, The Brewery Quarter. We worked alongside Production AV to build an astro-turfed screen with an area for 20 spectators in comfy deckchairs to be able to relax in the sunshine and enjoy some tennis.

The restaurants and bars in the Brewery Quarter offered food and drink to the Wimbledon audience for them to enjoy in the comfort of their deckchairs. On the weekend of the finals, Cosy Club featured a pop-up bar next to the screen offering chilled alcoholic refreshments.

We had a great team of freelance event managers who kept the screen running smoothly on a daily basis, reacting to any weather changes, answering any public queries, and keeping on top of the busy live Wimbledon schedule on various BBC channels. The event received plenty of positive feedback and many thought it was a great addition to an already bustling area of the town.

Secret Garden Party was our next venture this summer - leading the evictions team at the well-loved festival which took a five year hiatus before returning with a bang 💥

Loved having a great team that helped to deliver a safe and comfortable festival #TeamSGP 🤍

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. 🦾
