At Bread our eyes are always on events and we are delighted to see them finally begin to come back!
We wanted to reflect on some of our favourite moments of live event producing and marketing so I’ve picked a few of our favourite events that we’ve worked on and missed that we are now very hopeful will return in some form in 2021.
Glastonbury send off at National Express Coach Station
Back in 2019 we worked with National Express on a multi-site event as part of Glastonbury 2019. We helped stage three concerts across the country for festival-goers to get themselves ready for the Pyramid Stage.
Halloween at The Night Owl
Working alongside the management team on successful events at The Night Owl has been such a rewarding experience. Our favourites are the Halloween immersive events, set around a theme such as ‘Stranger Things’ or ‘Pulp Killers: A Tarantino Halloween Party’.
Botanical Disco at Shambala Festival
In 2017, through our work with The Night Owl, we were asked to curate and manage a brand new venue at Shambala Festival called Botanical Disco. We were delighted when the venue was so successful that we were asked back the following year.
Slag Mag at The Castle & Falcon, Hare & Hounds and Night Owl
Serious Ladies of Art & Gigs is a trans-inclusive feminist music and arts magazine started up by then Bread team members Mazzy Snape and Sophie Hack. When each issue comes out, there is a launch party with live music, art stalls, DJs and more. The event is inclusive and welcoming.
Hott Date at Digbeth Dining Club
A fabulous bank holiday extravaganza that brought together a plethora of up and coming artists, live bands, DJs and food traders held across 3 venues on Lower Trinity Street. Digbeth Dining Club have been a valuable part of Birmingham’s cultural and tourist offering, leaders on the street food scene, it was a pleasure to collaborate with them again for this sold out event.
The Big Birmingham Soul Night at Birmingham Town Hall
We were delighted when the team approached us to broker a collaboration between The Night Owl and Birmingham Town Hall, creating ‘The Big Birmingham Soul Night’. We also worked closely together to organise Northern Soul flash mobs to promote the event at places such as Grand Central and the Great Western Arcade.
