The end of each summer heralds the arrival of the Surrey Hills Wood Fair, a family-friendly festival celebrating everything related to the area, including woodworking and a range of other countryside pursuits.
This year, the fair took place on the 10-11th September at Fish Pond Copse on the outskirts of Cranleigh, Surrey. It was just after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, so there was a respectful tone to the celebrations and a minute's silence was observed upon opening.
That said, a great time was had by all, especially the children who had an incredible array of activities to take part in, from face-painting to climbing trees.
So let's tell you a little more about our involvement in the outdoor event and how we helped make it happen.
Outdoor Stages On Hand To Provide Staging and Other Event Production Services to Surrey Hills Wood Fair
The Surrey Hills Wood Fair offers much more than the title suggests. While there are, of course, several activities and stalls related to wood-themed activities, there's also a wide range of other activities on offer too.
From horse-drawn wagon rides to falconry demonstrations and dozens of food and drink stalls, there's plenty to keep everyone entertained throughout the day. Oh, and did we mention the live music?
Within the main marquee, there was a live band playing throughout the day and several other music-related activities. This is where we came in, as we were on duty to provide a stage and several supporting event production services.
Since this was an indoor setting, the best stage in our lineup for the job was our 6m x 4m arc roof stage, and it was delivered on-site and up and running within a couple of hours. However, beyond the stage, we were also tasked with a number of event production tasks, so let's tell you a little more about them.
Outdoor Stages Provides Equipment and Services for Background Music and Public Announcements
Unlike our usual engagements, this was a daytime event; therefore, the stage didn't require one of our impressive stage lighting ensembles.
Instead, the festival organisers asked us to take care of the sound system for the live band, including sound mixing services, and we were also in charge of supplying the background music to the marquee in between performances from the live band and for the period after they had finished for the day.
Lastly, we supplied an array of wireless microphones for organisers to make public announcements over our distributed outdoor PA system. All in all, we're proud to say that our stage and event production services contributed to a fantastic day out for all those who attended.
