In a unique partnership, Amazing Tent joined forces with festival organisers to supply a TriSpan arena in the heart of Leeds for the first World Curry Festival.
In October 2010 with bad weather inevitable, the structure was fully enclosed to provide maximum protection from the elements. The installation was logistically complex, with a hard-standing site in the centre of the city, so precision planning and prior preparation was an essential part of Amazing’s service. Through a process of consultation with both organisers and the Council, the TriSpan was anchored using over 60 tonnes of ballast; nonetheless the installation of the structure was still completed within 2 days.
Inside, the structure was divided into three ‘zones’ – a chef demonstration area, a caberet stage and market place souk, providing visitors with enterntainment and retial therapy alongside the delights of eating curry!
With the festival being deemed by the press as an out-and-out success, Amazing will once again join forces with the organisers in 2011 to bring you the second World Curry Festival, this year in the home of British Curry, Bradford. Preliminary plans are underway to provide the TriSpan in the city centre’s Centenary Square with several new aspects being added to the Festival such as comedy, literature and music.
“I would like to personally thank you for all your efforts and hard work in making the first World Curry Festival a success. It was a wonderful experience which I hope to repeat again… thank you for supporting the festival this year and I hope you will continue next year” Zulfi Karim, Director
