Red Pepper project manager Eleanor Whitby works very closely with Angus Council, local police, fire safety officers, St Andrews First Aid as well as Glentress ambulance service to ensure that we deliver a safe event that meets with specifically designed critieria to ensure care and attention is paid to all aspects of the event. We would like to say thank you to everyone involved in the Sea Fest, we always receive such great support from Arbroath and thoroughly enjoy working for this exciting event.
Working with over 20 members of experienced staff to coordinate everything from fencing, toilets, car parking, signage, road directional signs, programme of events, site safety, stall holder safety guides and application packs, the list of tasks really is almost endless and evolves over a typical 12 months. Our team arrive on site at Inchcape Park, Beacon Green and the wonderful Harbour 5 days before the event takes place. From day one we are taking deliveries of fencing, toilets, stage equipment, marquees, market stalls,containers, kiosks and an entire kitchen! Our team work around the clock for the first 3 days to ensure that the 2,000 metres of fencing is safely erected on site.
For three years now RedPEPPER events have been working hard with the Sea Fest committee to produce a fun, educational, vibrant and safe event. This year we have introduced a fantastic jetski display and yacht race, improved the Fish Market Kitchen, expanded the number of entertainers we have on the stage throughout the weekend, invited the Gordon School of Dance to join us and show us why they have been chosen to dance in China this year, introduced live shows from Radio Tay for both Saturday and Sunday as well as some of our favourites like the Pleasureland Fair,the Knights of Moneymusk, Iain Spink’s traditional Arbroath Smokies, story telling with Jackie Ross, a fabulous live chainsaw carver and of course a traditional beer tent as well as many other attractions.
