As part of Outdoor Stages non-stop summer of 2022, we were contacted to provide mobile stage hire services to a local charity event in Camberley. The location for the occasion was Camberley Rugby Club, and the event involved several local acts performing on one of our stages. There was also a range of family-friendly activities, including touch rugby, face painting, and a BBQ.
As the event production partner, Outdoor Stages were tasked with delivering, installing and operating the stage, audio, lighting, and power for the day. But before we tell you any more about our specific event brief, let's give you a summary of the event and some of the standout moments.
Camberley Rugby Club Plays Host to Successful Charity Event
As mentioned, this was an event put on in conjunction with the rugby club along with their headline sponsors to raise money and awareness for several local causes. The event was a great success, with a number of local businesses and individuals donating their time, products, and services to help make it happen.
The main focal point for the event was the main stage (supplied by Outdoor Stages), which showcased several local acts throughout the day. Of course, there wasn't just music, with sports activities, face painting, obstacle courses, and a large BBQ tent offering plenty to do for all the family.
The atmosphere was fantastic, with a real sense of community and togetherness in the air. The event was a great success, with over £3500 raised for the chosen charities.
So, what exactly did our team do to bring together such a fantastic community event?
Outdoor Stages Handles Total Event Production and Mobile Stage Hire for Camberley Charity Event
As the chosen production and stage hire partner, we were responsible for delivering, installing, and operating the stage first and foremost. We set about constructing our small stage hire option, our 6m x 4m. While we often describe this stage as small, it's by no means inadequate for most events, as it can accommodate a live band and their associated instruments with ease (as was the case here).
Next, we turned our attention to rigging the stage with a lighting ensemble that would really help the performers to shine. We used a selection of PAR can lights, which are ideal for this type of event as they provide a bright, even wash of light that is perfect for illuminating the stage. We also used some moving head lights to add some dynamic lighting effects, some LED uplighters, and a few strip lights to create some interest and add to the visual spectacle.
The audio system was next on our list, and we chose to use a PA system that always packs a punch, our d&b audiotechnik J series. This system is perfect for smaller events such as this one, as it provides plenty of power and clarity without being overbearing. We also provided a selection of wired microphones and ran everything through our Midas M32 digital mixer.
Lastly, we provided one of our new "super-silent" generators and handled all the associated distribution requirements. A couple of our technicians and engineers hung around on-site to ensure everything ran smoothly and lend a helping hand where necessary.
Overall, it was a great event to be a part of, and we were thrilled to be able to help out such worthy causes.
