Get Inspired!You have a band you want to promote, a village community you want to gather, a charity you want to support, a birthday you want to celebrate – and you want to get involved and organise some kind of event, but where to begin?
- Focus on what’s special about your event and always keep it in mind.
- Give your event something quirky to make it stand out from the crowd.
- Don’t forget the traditional events – the jumbles and the fêtes – they may not be innovative and unusual but they always drawn in the crowds.
- Don’t go overboard. In keeping your ambitions modest you’ll keep your plans realistic and realisable.
Charity EventStaging a fundraising event is a fantastic way to support a charity that you particularly care about. It is also a good opportunity to indulge a hobby – such as by putting on a music concert - or complete a personal challenge.
It doesn’t need to be a big, worthy event that involves a lot of careful planning and hard work, it could simply be you and your friends, family or colleagues getting together to do something that you all enjoy doing. From pub quizzes to pet shows to go-karting and garden parties, there is literally an endless array of possibilities of potential event types to raise funds for a charity.
A Campaign EventCampaigning for change is not limited to trudging through the streets holding aloft home-made banners, there are a variety of other ways to get people involved and mobilised. Holding a campaign event is one great method to raise public awareness and generate publicity about a cause that is close to your heart.
Of course, organising an event doesn’t have to involve being selfless and giving by supporting others, you could do it for personal artistic or business reasons.
