Isos: Residents Festival
July 2015, St James Park, Newcastle
A celebration event for all Isos Residents. Over 1,500 residents registered for the event and we welcomed them to St James Park to take advantage of a huge family fun day! With an entire level dedicated to kids entertainment complete with inflatables, cinema room, assault courses, face painting, circus skills, colouring competitions, a photo booth and everything in between. Adults were free to enjoy the Isos information and employment zone as well as interactive sessions and a Q&A with Emmerdale’s Charlie Hardwick. We made sure that the event was accessible for everyone and managed a complex transport booking system to ensure residents from across the North East and Northumberland could attend the event. With overwhelmingly positive feedback we’re hoping to make the event an annual celebration for Isos residents.
“Isos is absolutely buzzing this morning with chatter about the festival – a truly fantastic event. I have feedback from the Chair, Vice Chair and Chief Exec who all commented how great it was. You and your team were fantastic and did such a wonderful job. I would like to thank you for all your efforts. A brilliant job, once again, and we couldn’t have done it without you.”
