Covid has proved to be a gruelling and at times very tense long haul for everyone, with only brief respites to the lockdown. But now it looks like we have an end in sight. How exciting is it now to see things gradually unlocking, and be able to look forward to a summer of events and festivals taking place.
Nowhere is this new flourishing of activity more noticeable than around Britain’s coastal town and resorts. From family fun at the large and very popular Eastbourne International Airshow in August, to Newquay’s Boardmasters Surf Festival in July, and smaller events like the Salcombe Crab Festival coming up, there’s a real opening up and positivity in evidence around Britain’s seaside.
Typical of this new flurry of events is the town of Folkestone (Hythe District Council), where EventApp has been on hand as a Council partner to help streamline and organise the event permitting application process. As part of the Folkestone Festivals season local residents can look forward to plenty of jazz on Saturdays and Sundays around the seafront bandstand, as well as the Vintage Music Festival in July. There’ll also be classic vehicles providing static displays, vintage amusements, Punch and Judy Shows and a host of stall holders selling vintage and retro goods as well as craft and food.
It all sounds like a brilliant day out. The event is expected to draw big crowds to the area and like all events everyone will need to be managed and organised safely by the local council and the SAG committee working group. EventApp is the perfect solution for managing projects like this.
EventApp allows local authorities and their SAG groups to move their event application and management processes online – simply and inexpensively. The whole process of applying for, authorising and reviewing events is made easier to monitor and track (and it helps with social distancing too). It also allows local authorities to work seamlessly with local residents, SAG groups and wider stakeholders. Which means you can save time on administration, process more applications and increase your event revenues.
The EventApp software is easy-to-use software and supplies all the required steps for permit approvals and notifications – so the whole process can be navigated with the minimum of effort.The system also includes reminders and prompts for missing information so you keep on top of every permit application. All data is secure within this simple and highly cost-effective system.
