This July saw the celebration of the bigger of the two Eid celebrations on the Islamic calendar. Eid al-Adha was celebrated at an event put together by Yaseen Youth, a non-profit organisation that seeks to empower and educate young Muslims across the UK. The event, which was a celebration of this key Muslim holiday, saw over 2000 attendees.
Organisers of the event had booked Outdoor Stages to provide staging, lighting and sound equipment for the festivities, which took place at Horsenden Hill park, near the activity centre.
So let's tell you a little more about what was on offer at this event, and detail how we were able to help make it the success that it was.
Eid Celebration to Remember Put on By Yaseen Youth
Yaseen Youth's Eid Celebration indeed was a family day out with a vast range of activities. Attendees could enjoy clothing stalls, bouncy castles, giant zorbing, funfair rides, food and drink stalls, foot darts, and live performances from prominent nasheed artists.
The event lasted all day (11 am to 10 pm) and came to a close with storytelling over a campfire, which was a perfect way to end an action-packed day.
Our brief for this event revolved around the stage, which was to be used for both the nasheed performances and as a general performance area for other activities taking place during the day. So let's delve into the details of our work.
Eid Organisers Book Outdoor Stages for Seamless Stage Production
As this event was hosted at a local park that had only been booked for the allotted time, our team had to arrive early in the morning to set up the stage. This was no easy task, as we had to negotiate around other activities that were being set up at the same time.
However, our team is experienced in working around these types of logistical issues and were able to set up the stage with plenty of time to spare. In terms of the stage chosen, we recommended our 6m x 4m arc roof stage, which provided more than enough of a platform and focal point for the nasheed performances and speeches that took place later in the day.
We also supplied PA speakers (positioned at the back of the stage), several wireless microphones, and rigged the stage with a reasonably modest lighting ensemble to provide some basic effects and illumination during performances.
From start to finish, the stage ran without a hitch, which is always our aim. We understand that when booking an outdoor stage, there is always an element of uncertainty due to the fact that the weather can be unpredictable.
However, our stages are designed to withstand high winds and bad weather, which meant that even though there were a few rain showers during the day, the stage remained in perfect condition (and dry), providing a safe and secure performance area for all.
