Here in the UK, we do Festivals well.

Festival Organisers have put Security and Safety First, and High-Quality Event Fencing using Temporary Fencing and Crowd Control Barriers have played a crucial part in ensuring safe and secure events.

Festival and Concert attendance in the UK has grown year on year, and in 2019 just under Thirty Four Million of Us attended a Concert or Music Festival.

Over five million of us attended a Music Festival somewhere in the UK.

In Seven Years, attendance to Festivals, Events and Concerts has jumped by over twenty million.

The Event Industry here in the UK contributes to our economy, culture, arts, and wellness.

Over the past couple of years, UK Events and Festivals have suffered, but with Demand Higher than ever and loosening restrictions, Events and Festivals are rising from the Ashes.

The events Industry is Resilient and Dynamic and looking to Grow once Again.

UK Events have gotten bigger with more options for visitors.

It is no longer just Music Festivals. There is a whole range of Festivals you can attend across your weekend.

Music Festival

Music Festivals tend to occur more in the Summer Months from May to September.

Most of these events are paid events with options to buy Day or Weekend Tickets with Camping and Overnight Stay Options.

Music Events typically have something for everyone, with Fair Ground Rides, Children's Entertainment and Every Type of Food. 

Food Festivals

These popular Festivals typically include entertainment, including Music with the Main emphasis on a Range of High-Quality Food and Drink Outlets.

These Family Friendly events have become extremely popular and well Organised.

These tend to be held outdoors in the summer months, but Food Events run year-round, with the smaller Indoor Festival running over Christmas and School Holidays.

From Horse Racing, Cycling to Formula One, Safe and Secure Event Sites are put together by Organisers and provide Visitors with After Event Concerts and Hospitality.

Event Fencing

Event Fencing includes High-Quality Temporary Fencing, Crowd Control Barriers and Security Fencing.

When planning a Festival, the Organisers aim to minimise any Risk whilst enhancing the experience for Festival Goers, Security Personnel, Vendors and Artists.

The Event Organisers Expertise will be tested to ensure Temporary Fencing Solutions are planned and the Event Fencing is adequate for everyone.

The Festival Team are likely to have a three-step plan which would include

  • Strategy One - Objectives incl Safety and Customer Experience
  • Strategy Two - Tactical Planning - Drawings and Working with Event Fencing Specialists
  • Strategy Three - Implement Event Fencing - Installation and Dismantle

 On top of this, the Festival Organisers will be working with Temporary Fencing Suppliers and Contractors, Using Budgets to make an informed decision on whether to Buy or Hire.

They will have a Safety Protocol in place to ensure the Temporary Fencing Solutions are installed correctly and checked regularly.

Having Safety Plans in case something goes wrong, and of course, removing the Festival without Impact on the Local and Global Environment using Sustainable Methods.

Whatever the size of the Festival, these Steps are essential for the Security and Safety of everyone in and around the Festival grounds.

Temporary Fencing

Temporary Fencing Products are available for a Range of Temporary Fencing Solutions to suit your Event or Festival.

Metal Temporary Fences 

This type of Temporary Fencing is extremely popular not only at Events and Festivals but also on any Temporary Site such as Building Site Fencing.

Sometimes known as Heras Fencing, the Galvanised Steel Fence Panels are easy to install and Dismantle and are reusable and recyclable.

The Steel Temporary Fence Panel is resilient to High Winds and Vandalism with its Anti Climb Mesh Features, Ballast and Stabilisers.

Festival and Events often use these High-Quality Temporary Fencing Solutions, which are available to Buy or Hire from Reputable Suppliers in the UK.

The Crowd Control Strategy at any Festival will ensure a Successful Event.

Organisers will plan where Crowd Control Barriers should be placed, and this will help with Queue Management and keeping areas Safe.

Crowd Control Barriers are proven to be effective, and the High-Quality Barriers are available in a Variety of Versions to suit the Event.
