Major Public Events

Creating and managing large-scale, public events has figured strongly in the Alan Hillary CV for over twenty years.

Just prior to setting up the company, Alan, as event manager, was instrumental in the huge success of the first visit of the Tall Ships Race to Tyneside which attracted half a million visitors.

The St John Ambulance centenary celebrations, which took place in Hyde Park, London, was a massive party attended by 100,000 invited guests including several Royals.

Back in the north east the first ever Northumbria Food Festival held in Baltic Square, attracted an amazing 20,000 visitors.

Our Turning The Tide event on the coast of County Durham was seen by over 100,000 people. We also organise In Town Without My Car, an event which promotes alternative transport and pedestrianises the biggest street in Newcastle upon Tyne and attracts thousands.
