Every year we think we can’t have a better summer, and then the next one comes along and it’s even more ‘Amazing’! 2018 was no different. Fantastic weather, an extended event season with more bookings than ever before and some dazzling events to be a part of.
We’re really proud to be part of an exciting and eclectic UK events industry, from food festivals and outdoor opera to Highland events and heavy metal, our calendar is a real mix of the very best in outdoor events.
At the end of a busy year it’s nice to stand back and reflect on the year gone by and give thought to the year ahead. As a business we have been gradually moving towards bringing our whole business under the Amazing Tent Co brand. Some of you know us as Nomadic Spaces – in fact we’re one in the same business – same people, same tents. The two companies came together several years ago and today we mainly take our bookings through Amazing Tent – so you’re likely to see us under that name. Never fear we are the same friendly people!
Before we share our 2018 highlights, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our employees, our suppliers and our clients (agencies, event professionals and festival directors) a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, we look forward to seeing you in 2019.
Amazing Tent Co – 2018 Highlights
We were delighted to strike a partnership with Luna Cinema to provide event cover for their new set of outdoor kids’ cinemas around the UK in 2018. We provided SaddleSpan tents for six events in Dulwich Park, London; Hatfield House, Hertfordshire; Hampton Court Palace; Priory Park, Surrey; Heaton Park, Manchester and Tatton Park, Cheshire.
With the absence of Glastonbury in 2018, Radio One aimed to fill the gap with their biggest event yet, called, you guessed it Radio One’s Biggest Weekend. It was held over 4 locations in the UK, of which we provided SaddleSpans for three of those in Perth, Swansea and Coventry – all on the same weekend in May!
We were delighted to provide two SaddleSpans for the 50th birthday party of this iconic magazine. The Time Out Magazine Party was held in central London with an amazing and eclectic line-up from music and street food to a women’s wresting ring.
Scottish Opera hosted a world first this year – live opera in a tent in Paisley. They used one of our QuadSpan structures for this unique event, with live orchestra, and a cast that moved around the tent.
This year we provided two SaddleSpan tents for PT18, the UK’s flagship technology trade show and conference. The event space was filled with incredible tech on display and the purple carpets and lighting really added an ‘other-world’ effect to the event space.
