The Details

Event/ Production: Chatsworth House Summer Concerts Series

Location: Chatsworth House

Services: Technical Management, Site Managment

Client: TBi Media

Overview:

CSG Events managed the delivery of technical production and site management for the Chatsworth House Summer Concerts Series. This included selecting and appointing event suppliers: staging, FOH structure, lighting, PA, rigging, heras fencing, pedestrian barriers, local crew and stage management.

The concert series takes place in the rear gardens of Chatsworth House. Given the venue’s cultural heritage and history and the limitations on unloading kit onsite, careful planning and supplier communication is vital to the safe and successful delivery of the event’s build and de-rig. CSG Events ensured that all suppliers were mindful of their environment and that all deliveries and movement of kit were undertaken with due care and attention.

Other challenges include very limited access for heavy goods vehicles into the gardens, everything had to be transported using 7.5 ton shuttle trucks. In addition, vehicles are only permitted to drive around the site during early morning or late evening so all production deliveries have to be carried out overnight/ early hours of the morning.

Performers have included Jools Holland, Philharmonic Orchestra and Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show, with an audience attendance of 4,000.
