The Association of Independent Festivals (AIF), Access All Areas magazine, Festival Insights and Festival Production Company, We Are The Fair have joined forces to organise and underwrite a not-for-profit event to mark the end of the most challenging festival seasons the industry has ever experienced.
The event will bring together the festival industry and take place on 11th of November at Village Underground in Shoreditch and they are looking for an NCASS member to support by catering the event. Tickets are priced £15 and all excess funds will be donated to Stagehand , the industry charity that raised and distributed more than £1.7m to keep roofs over heads and food on the tables of crew and technicians who had received the least support though the Covid-19 crisis.
“It has been a torrid two years; many of us didn’t do any trade last year and lots of events didn’t go ahead this year,” said We Are The Fair CEO Nick Morgan. “The Wrap Party is not necessarily a celebration, more an acknowledgment of what everyone has been through. It’s a chance to come together, see live music, and see other event producers who haven’t been able to meet up because they have been so focused on delivering events.”
