Towersey Folk Festival
1st September 2008
Stage Electrics has recently provided all technical support, arc roofing for the festival dance house, power distribution, lighting and crew for the annual Towersey Village Folk Festival. Once a year the little town of Towersey in Oxfordshire, with a population of 400, becomes engulfed with festival-goers, keen to soak up the festival's 5 day atmosphere. Towersey is now in its 44th year, and has again attracted the cream of folk and acoustic music artists including The Commitments, who opened the show during the August Bank Holiday weekend. The festival also includes a showground, a wide range of trade stalls and catering venues. Daily visitors to this year's festival topped 2,500, with a further 3,500 choosing to camp.
Stage Electrics has been heavily involved with the festival for 15 years, and is also a main sponsor. Steve Heap, Director of the festival comments:
'Working with Stage Electrics makes me feel confident that they get the job done. They always say yes and deliver a solution, whatever the problem is when hosting a festival on this scale. Some contractors bring something totally different to what you wanted, but Stage Electrics deliver what they say they are going to. Project Manager Jon Rimmer is faultless in everything he brings to the job, from building the event up to preparing everything, it's like having another member of our team with us.'
