Towersey expands production team to prepare for 2022 site move

Towersey Festival has bolstered its stage production and event management team. The festival’s promoter has appointed One Big Star and Engine No 4.

One Big Star has been a supplier of Towersey for several years, but will take over the stage production in full in 2022.  Based in Newark, One Big Star has many years’ experience in the live events industry and this move is one that has been in discussion for some time.

Joe Heap, festival director of Towersey Festival, said: “We have worked with Chris and Steve from One Big Star for a number of years now and they really get the whole ethos of the Towersey family.  We are one team when it comes to producing this event and as such, we all look out for each other and work as one.  One Big Star are a family business, like us, so they are a great fit.

“It’s a move we have wanted for a while.  A way of streamlining and uniforming the stages, and the right way to go as the festival looks to grow over the coming years”

Towersey will celebrate its 58th edition,  in the new location of Claydon Estate, Buckinghamshire over the August Bank Holiday weekend headlined by Tom Odell.

Engine No 4  will take over the running of the site and site operations for the live event.

Jim Gee, project manager at Engine No 4, said: “We feel very privileged to be invited into the Towersey family at this pivotal moment in it’s long history, and we look forward to working with the team to help ensure a solid and prosperous future for the festival.”

Heap commented on Engine No 4’s appointment: “We are so thrilled to have these guys working with us. We have needed partnership in this area for some time to allow the festival to move forward and allow the Towersey team more room to create and steer the direction of this famous event.  And we couldn’t ask for more experienced and trusted people.”

One Big Star and Engine No. 4’s production and event management expertise will allow Towersey to push forward with some ambitious growth plans for the festival. Later this year, the company will embark on a venture capital raising with a focus on future proofing and the hugely successful festival for another 50 years.
