Outdoor Stages was recently part of a wonderful family sporting event held across the grounds of Aldershot Garrison. The event, aimed at helping increase participation in sport, saw hundreds of families come together to compete in various sporting disciplines, including touch rugby, rounders, athletics, and more.
Outdoor Stages provided a full technical event production solution for the day, including staging, distributed PA, and lighting. We were able to work with the event organisers to create a bespoke package that met their needs and helped make the day a success.
So, without further ado, let's tell you a little more about this local event and how we helped to make it happen.
Family Sports Day Event Held Across Aldershot Military Town
The event was the brainchild of Rushmoor Borough Council and Aldershot Garrison Sports Centre. It was held to get more people, particularly families, involved in sport. It was held across several locations within the Aldershot Military Town, with the Aldershot Military Stadium, Sports Centre, Polo Fields, and Tennis Centre all playing host to different parts of the day.
There were various sports on offer, including touch rugby, netball, football, cricket, tennis, swimming, track athletics, and rounders, to name just a few! The different sports were hosted at their respective locations, with the majority of them taking place in the morning.
After a morning of sporting activities, everyone then made their way to Queen's Parade, where several stalls and attractions were set up, including face painting, food and drink vendors, a climbing wall, bouncy castles, and more. There was also an outdoor stage (provided by us) that showcased local artists and dance troupes throughout the day and helped to close the event with a party atmosphere in the evening.
So let's tell you a little more about our specific event brief and how we delivered it.
Outdoor Stage Provides Staging, PA, and Lighting for Family Sports Event in Aldershot
The event organisers approached us to provide a full technical production solution, including everything from staging and PA to lighting and power.
We worked with the organisers to create a tailored solution, as this specific event required tricky logistical considerations. For example, we had to ensure that the central PA system could be heard across all of the different sporting venues, as well as in the central Queen's Parade area.
In terms of our stage setup, we provided our 8m x 6m arc roof stage, which was perfect for the event. This particular stage is very popular for outdoor events, as it provides a significant performance area whilst also being easier and less time-consuming to construct than our large-scale festival stages.
The stage was covered in black drapes on the rear, and both sides before we complemented the structure with a lighting rig and floor-based fixtures – ensuring the stage looked great and that the performers had everything they needed to put on a great show.
On the sound side, we supplied one of our industry-leading PA systems from d&b audiotechnik, which included line arrays, stage monitors, and a digital mixing console. We also provided full sound engineering support for the event, ensuring that all the different sporting venues and the central stage area had great audio coverage.
We were also tasked with the power cable and distribution for the event, which is always a key consideration for any outdoor event. We supplied a generator to ensure that there was a reliable power source for all of the different elements of the event.
Overall, it was a fantastic event enjoyed by all who attended. We were thrilled to be a part of it and to help make it happen with it being on our proverbial doorstep.
