Save perhaps the Formula One Grand Prix at Silverstone; there is no greater motorsport event in the UK than Goodwood's Festival of Speed. Attracting 150,000 fans year in, year out, this celebration of all things fast within the grounds of Goodwood House is a must on any petrolhead's calendar.
For this year's edition, which runs from the 23rd-26th of June, Outdoor Stages have been appointed event production suppliers, covering a stage production installation, along with several sound and lighting installations and numerous car display ramps.
But we'll go into more detail regarding our work shortly; let's first tell you everything you need to know about Goodwood (in case you're somehow unfamiliar!).
Goodwood Festival of Speed Returns for Another Blockbuster Celebration This June
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the Ronseal of festivals; it does exactly what it says on the tin. It's a celebration of all things fast and includes some of the rarest and fastest cars and motor vehicles on the planet.
The festival's centrepiece is the world-famous hill climb, where cars battle it out to record the fastest time on a narrow road lined with nothing more than straw bales. But that's not all. There are dozens of shows, F1 car demonstrations, stunts, car displays and futuristic labs for motorsport enthusiasts to get stuck into.
Outdoor Stages are once again involved with the running of this year's event, handling the stage production, sound, lighting and car display ramps. With that in mind, let's give you a little more detail regarding our event brief.
Outdoor Stages Handles Full Event Production Requirements for Goodwood Festival of Speed
Let's start with our central stage installation, which is comprised of our new 7m x 5m arc roof festival stage. We'll rig this structure with all manner of stage lighting fixtures and a comprehensive PA system from d&b audiotechnik. We will also complement this stage with a couple of PA wings and LED screens to give all audience members a great view.
As the contractors in charge of all technical event production, we will also supply and install a further seven arenas of sound and lighting in various site locations. Lastly, we will be installing dozens of specialist car display plinths as part of our work in the Michelin Supercar Paddock.
We're immensely proud of our involvement with such a world-renowned event and can't wait to see (and hear) the cars in action.
