Last year sadly most food festivals in the UK were cancelled due to Covid and the difficulty of social distancing measures put in place by the UK government. However, many are expected to be taking place this summer!

To meet Covid safety requirements all events such as Jamie Oliver’s Big Feastival, Cheltenham Food Festival, and Pub in the Park will be taking place outdoors and of course socially distanced. Many food festivals take place on local farms and are a valuable opportunity to showcase local and artisan produce such as wine, fruits, fish and meat. They offer benefits in the form of tourism and economic value for the local population.

Food festivals are an opportunity to enjoy a summer's day out with friends and family. Many include chef demos, wine courses, live music, celebrity talks and a chance to buy and sample various street foods. ‘Take full advantage of being at a festival with some of the best chefs in the country and book on to one of our Dining Experiences. From banquets to brunches, treat yourself to some of the best food you will ever eat in the middle of a field!’

The Big Feastival

As consumers become increasingly attracted to local and artisan produce the number of food festivals continue to rise. The food festival has identified a desire in us to return to our roots - literally! We as a consumer now enjoy the simple pleasures of our food, local and home grown. A new marketing phenomenon that appeals to brand savvy consumers. No longer able to spend our money in exotic climes, we are now having to explore the bounty of our own island.

Pop Up Power offers durable, easy to use units designed to provide power and other services for food festivals across the country. They are available when needed, but are hidden when you don’t. They are ideal for use in public areas as their design minimises the potential for damage and they operate with the lid locked down with only the power cable protruding.

The range of In Ground Power Units, or Flip Lid Units are an extremely safe and flexible option for power. Each power unit benefits from a secure lockable lid. This prevents public access and increases safety. Only the cables protrude from the power unit. The cables will be covered by cable protectors which also reduces any hazard.

Pop Up Power Supplies® offers a range of six in ground units, from the Slim 250mm unit, right up to the 700mm x 500mm PUPS02 – 7050-for providing total power of up to 125 amps. All feature recessed covers to accept paving or other types of surface to achieve a seamless visual result.
