From April to September each year there are around 230 major festivals happening in the UK. This isn’t including the marathons, car shows and other events which really are what spring and summer are all about.
If you have decided to plan your own event, no matter what the size, it is time you started planning. Start daydreaming about running the perfect event and get all these ideas written down. Once this is all done then here is a list of things any spring/summer festival or event must have:
Remember To Hire The Right Facilities
First things first, make sure you have the right facilities to accommodate for all your guests. This means portable toilets, catering services, and even setting out camping sites dependent on the scale of your event.
For a small country wedding you might only need to hire one or two toilets as well as a catering company. However, with a larger scale event or festival with 20,000 people attending it is a good idea to hire a few more toilets.
Organising all these facilities to be in place can take time and effort which is why it is a good idea to hire a company like SRP Hire Solutions to offer their events management services to you. This takes away the stress of accommodating for thousands of people whilst trying to run your event and enjoy it as well. Tell them your plan, how big your event is proposed to be and let them do the rest.
Plan For Any Eventuality
Every event is different but that also means that there are thousands of chances for things to go wrong with your event. Take time to work with your events management team so that you cover every possible circumstance to make sure that you are prepared for anything to happen over the course of the event.
This will help you to be well prepared, keep your staff and guests safe as well as save you the stress of an incident or accident or something going wrong.
Think About The Perfect Venue
The best festivals and events are planned to perfection and housed in an amazing location that really brings the whole event to life.
When you are deciding where to locate your festival, wedding, car show, outdoor event or anything else it is important you think about all your different options. Outdoor events are great in the summertime when the weather is nice, the fields are full of life and nobody minds camping. However, this is the UK and we all know that the weather can be very unpredictable.
Make sure that if it is an outdoor event you make sure to have somewhere for people to shelter if the weather does get bad such as a marquee or an indoor venue.
Promote Your Event Over Social Media
Once the practical planning is done, the venue has been chosen and your events management team is in place it is time to think about promoting your event.
If it is a family wedding or a small get together then make sure that you send out invitations. However, if your event is a huge festival then it is a good idea to get on social media and promote the event from there.
Tweet about tickets, rave about how amazing the facilities are and share photos of the venue. This will keep people interested and mean that if it is a success you can plan another event for the next year as well.
Dream big, plan well, have an amazing summer and plan your perfect event with a little bit of help here and there.
