Bringing Power To This Major East London Event
The Mayor’s Newham Show sees thousands come to Central Park for a great day. That requires a lot of power!
We like to keep you all up to date with the events that we power, and this summer we played a big part in the Mayor’s Newham Show. Taking place on the weekend of 8th-9th of July, this annual event is really important to the local community. As a result, it attracts many people from all over the borough. With sound, lighting, food stalls and many other things needing a reliable power source, we were the perfect company to help. So here’s a little more about the Mayor’s Newham show, and why we were the best company to take on the responsibility of powering it.
A much-loved event
So what exactly is the Mayor’s Newham Show? Well, it’s a yearly event held in East Ham’s Central Park that brings the entire borough together. Featuring musicians, children’s entertainers, bouncy castles, glimpses of local history and much more, it’s an event that has something for everyone. It’s no surprise then, that entire families will head down to the park, confident that everyone from grandparents to toddlers will be entertained!
2017’s show was better than ever
This year’s show was a roaring success, even by recent standards. The party got underway in the streets, where the famous carnival saw residents and performers alike singing and dancing. In the park, there was a tribute to East Ham’s most famous daughter, the iconic Dame Vera Lynn, which captivated old and young people alike. A seaside experience and a village fete bought something different to this very urban setting, and the performance of a local children’s choir saw plenty of proud parents recording the special event on their mobile phones. How many people came exactly? Well, this year’s festival drew a crowd of 50,000! All that, of course, requires power – which is where we came in!
We had the necessary experience
Our experience helped us to deliver all the power an event of this scale needs. Having powered events such as Slam Dunk Festival, The International Scout Jamboree and Dressage at Hickstead, we knew how to prepare. Our generator hire service was perfect for the organisers of the Mayor’s Newham Show. They can rely on the quality of our equipment, and also have complete confidence in the fact that we stick closely to all relevant safety regulations too. We support our clients every step of the way, and we worked closely with them before, during and after the event to make sure it went off without a hitch.
We love to support local events
Being based in Essex, we were ideally located to power the event, and we could be there within the hour. As many of our clients and partners know, we’re passionate about supporting events that make a real difference to our local area. Everyone had such a good time at this year’s Mayor’s Newham Show, and it gave us great pride to know that we were the ones who powered the event from start to finish. Now that that show is over, we’re looking forward to helping more events make a positive impact on their local communities in 2017 and beyond.
