Bringing Europe’s Biggest Free Music Festival to East Yorkshire
In May 2017, Chris and Jenny worked closely with Radio 1 to deliver the Big Weekend – bringing the festival to Burton Constable Hall.
50,000 people descending on a small, rural village over one bank holiday weekend posed real logistical challenges. Chris worked very closely with Radio 1 and the Burton Constable Foundation to deliver this flagship event, and led the team responsible for delivering the complex requirements including transport, security, traffic management, medical provision, waste management and resident engagement. With colleagues from Hull City Council and Hull 2017 Jenny co-ordinated the local resident engagement to ensure any adverse impact on local residents was kept to a minimum. She also worked closely with Radio 1 to co-ordinate guest lists, VIP arrangements and ticket distribution. During the event weekend Chris & Jenny were in event control helping to ensure the 50,000 concert goers had a fantastic and safe weekend.
