This June, Wychwood Festival will return to Cheltenham Racecourse for three days of musical performances and other family-friendly activities. As a long-time event production partner, we'll be on hand once again to provide a best-in-class stage production along with being responsible for the full technical event production for the entire festival.
With that in mind, let's tell you a little more about this festival and detail the work we will be undertaking.
Wychwood Festival Returns for Another Year of Family Fun
Described as a "Bijou Glastonbury" and a regular winner of awards for Britain's best family festival, Wychwood offers its festivalgoers a blend of music, comedy, workshops, a kid's literature festival, a headphone disco, and a whole host of other family-friendly activities.
The Telegraph has described the three-day event as a “safe, fun place to take the family but also rock ‘n’ roll enough for the most hardened of music fans." Speaking of music, the event continues to attract some top performers who have included household names such as Bill Bailey, The Boomtown Rats, The Proclaimers, and this year's headliners Deacon Blue.
We've been instructed to supply our stage equipment and event production expertise to ensure this year's edition of this popular festival goes off without a hitch. So let's delve into a little more detail regarding our event brief.
Outdoor Stages Aids Wychwood Festival with Stage Hire and Wider Event Production Services
The first aspect of our event brief concerns supplying and installing one of our stages. The organisers have opted for our newer 7m x 5m arc roof stage, which delivers excellent bang for the buck even though it's on the smaller end of our festival stages.
We will, of course, also be rigging the stage with dozens of lighting fixtures and a multifaceted sound system that includes line arrays, stage monitors, amps, PA speakers, microphones, and digital mixing desks. We'll also be providing two further sound and lighting installations to a couple of the other performance areas.
Lastly, we've been given the reins to oversee all technical event production for the festival, meaning we'll be liaising with on-site personnel and other contractors to ensure technical elements such as power and distribution are all running smoothly.
In summary, we're incredibly pleased to be returning to Cheltenham Racecourse this June and working with the Wychwood team again to ensure the event is yet another resounding success.
