Towersey Festival 2015 – Case Study


Celebrating 50 years of folk music heritage, this unique festival asked us to supply staging, lighting and power across the new site at Thame Showground. Our team took care to fulfill all requirements in keeping with the festival’s theme, combining intelligent lighting design and first-rate modern technology to give fresh looks with a classic feel.

Challenges & achievements

Relocating to a new site for the first time after 50 years presented new opportunities for production. We brought LED lighting and moving head fixtures to the Venue 65, Big Club and Family Dance House arenas to accentuate dynamic performances from leading folk acts including Bellowhead and Joan Armatrading and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from artists and festival-goers alike.

The new layout also required festoon lighting in keeping with the festival’s theme and our team used a suitably multi-coloured array to fit beautifully with the onsite facilities.
