The June Bank Holiday Weekend has always been a crazy time for us here at Extreme Structures and this year was no exception. With events happening all around the country and the sun shining Ireland was in its element. We were at some of the biggest events in Dublin over the weekend including Bloom 2016 and Forbidden Fruit.
We were working with GIY Ireland at Bloom helping them create their #FoodMatters tent which held talks with Cully & Sully, Innocent and Bord Bia. They gave informative seminars on organic farming, seasonal container growth and fruit growing in your garden. We supplied a 10.5m x 15m stretch tent along with 30 pallet benches and a stage. The event was a huge success and we’re delighted to have been a part of it.
We were also at Forbidden Fruit setting up The Bulmer’s Lounge. We provided a 25m x 18m beige stretch tent. The event saw acts such as Dizzee Rascal, Young Father and Kerri Chandler take to the stage while the Bulmer’s Lounge offered guests an area to chill out and grab a beer. The weather couldn’t have been better and the pictures from the weekend looked AMAZING!
We were happily involved with the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon which saw some 35,000 women take to the streets of Dublin to run/jog/walk 10 km for their chosen charity. Despite the light and sporadic showers everyone had a great time and we were there to provide the stretch tent for their ‘Relaxation Area’ where participants could sit down and relax after the race. We provided 4 10.5m x 15m stretch tents equalling a 21mx45m space which we made into an L shape. We also provided festoon lighting and Iretak flooring to add to the relaxing atmosphere. We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone who took part in the race and a well done to the event organisers and co-ordinators on such a successful day.
Now it’s time to truck on with the rest of our Summer events including more festivals, corporate events and weddings with our sister company The Outdoor Wedding Company. Be sure to check out our Facebook Page where we post all our jobs and regular updates!
We’ll leave you with some photos of the events over the last weekend for now. Enjoy!
