Outdoor Stages to Provide Headline Stage and Full Technical Event Production to Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink Festival

Funkirk Farm is once again set to welcome foodies from all over the country with the return of the Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink Festival. All the big-name favourites are back, and so are we after Outdoor Stages won the contract to provide the stage hire and event production services for this popular event.

So without further ado, let's recap what people attending this festival can expect and run you through the work we will be undertaking at this event.

Yorkshire Dales Food and Drink Festival Returns for Another Edition in 2022

This event keeps going from strength to strength and manages to attract an ever-increasing number of food and festival lovers. There's something for everyone at this family-friendly celebration. The headline acts are, of course, live demos from celebrity chefs, including James Martin and the Hairy Bikers.

However, there's so much more to this festival held on a working farm in the rural Yorkshire Dales. There are fabulous workshops and masterclasses, a vintage funfair, crafting demonstrations, lots of kids activities, tasting sessions, and hundreds of exhibitors offering some of the best street food in the UK.

Our brief, however, is primarily concerned with the event's live musical performances. With amazing tribute acts alongside some of the best of Yorkshire’s up and coming music artists, there are three days of performances that will have attendees up and dancing the evenings away.

Outdoor Stages to Provide Full Stage Production Along with Supporting Technical Services

As per the organisers' request, we are heading back this July with our 8m x 6m arc roof stage, which will be elevated to a 1.3m stage deck height to give audience members the best possible view.

We'll then rig the stage with a sound and lighting lineup worthy of headlining any festival, including all of the usual suspects and an immersive d&b audiotechnik PA system with suspended line arrays. Last but not least, we'll be erecting a couple of LED screens on either side of the stage to provide festivalgoers with a fantastic viewing experience, even if they are hundreds of yards away.

Aside from the stage production, we have also been tasked with handling all technical production for the festival. What that means in practical terms is that our stage crews, sound engineers, lighting technicians, and project manager will all be on-site throughout the festival to ensure everything runs smoothly.
