Details: The Nantwich Food Festival is an annual event taking place in a town centre location attracting 40,000 visitors and exhibitors from around the world. It is spread across three large marquees, taking over a public car park and numerous streets which are closed down during the setup. Work begins just 48 hours before the market opens making it a time pressured operation.

Event Equipment supplies power to over 200 food and drink exhibitors, and additional power, heating and lighting to all other areas of the show. All the power is tested and certified to BS7909 for temporary electrical installations. The company also provides stages for demonstrations from both celebrity and local chefs, and furniture for various seating areas.

It is a very popular event with a large team of volunteer organisers. Event Equipment works professionally as a tight team and the festival is always a success.

Feedback: John Coulter, director of Nantwich Food Festival, said: “Please pass on our appreciation for all the work your team did over the food festival weekend. Very professional, friendly and helpful. Brilliant job which helped our volunteers immensely.”
