GL events Owen Brown is celebrating after winning two new contracts to supply temporary structures to both Carfest South and North and Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival.

The Castle DOnington-based firm, in conjunction with sister company GL events Snowdens, is providing more than 10,000 square metres of temporary structures and marquees for DJ Chris Evans’ Carfest South event, which takes place at Laverstoke Park Farm, Overton, Hampshire, from August 26, as well as Carfest North, which takes place two weeks later on September 8 and 9 at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire.

In between, it will provide around 1,300 square metres of temporary accommodation for Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival, which will offer a blend of music, food and family fun on September 1 and 2 on Blur bassist-turned-cheesemaker Alex James’ farm in Kingham, Oxfordshire.

Among the structures being provided to Carfest are an Absolute Peak structure housing a series of car exhibitions, including models from Formula 1, on the arena field and structures for food and drink exhibitions, plus a VIP lounge, on the music field.

Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival, meanwhile, will see Owen Brown provide the structures for a Food Village, restaurants, a VIP area and a cooking masterclass space, where Oliver will man the chopping boards alongside fellow celebrity chefs Gennaro Contaldo and Simon Rogan.
