Festivals draw in crowds with photo boards
Here are a few of the festivals that have used our photo boards this year. From the large to the small, festivals are events that require branding and exposure. A great way to get people to participate in marketing and popularising a festival is to have one or more photo cutout boards made. They can be placed strategically around the event itself or used in public places before the event to drum up interest. They project a professional image of the event and can carry its main strapline as well as all relevant branding information, such as logos, images, hashtags, web addresses, emails and phone numbers. And here’s the good bit. People love to interact with photo boards, put their faces in the holes and snap funny photos which – guess what? – get shared on social media, bearing the festival’s image and message. The internet does the rest.
Here are some on the boards we’ve done this year for this type of event.
1. Wannabee, the Spice Girls Show at Frimley Lodge Live
Frimley Lodge Live is an annual music festival in Surrey Heath. We made this board for Spice Girls tribute act Wannabee.
Beery Teutonic oompah-and-lederhosen event Oktoberfest is growing in popularity here in the UK. It’s easy to see why. What’s not to like about sausages, sauerkraut and endless gallons of beer? This board from our Seasonal Range is off-the-peg for Oktoberfest and was used at several events last year. We can add branding for specific beer festivals by request. And the great thing is, it’s beer-proof! The Foamex PVC board doesn’t absorb liquids and can be wiped dry.
3. Bury St Edmunds and Halifax Food & Drink Festivals
Hear ye, hear ye! Local food, drink and business festivals can really benefit from photo boards. People see them around town and they help to raise awareness of the event. It’s simple really. Add the interactivity and fun of them being face-in-hole boards, and they can quickly build up public interest in a local festival. Probably cheaper than employing a town crier too.

4. Chinese New Year
The seasonal Chinese New Year festival is well known throughout the UK. The event can be used for marketing, which electronics giant Huawei have done with this board.
5. Camp Bestival
Family festival and camping experience Camp Bestival is loads of fun for kids and their adults. They used this board well in advance of the event as well as at the event itself.
We’ve got lots more boards for festivals in the pipeline, but we can ‘t tell you about them yet because the events are still to happen!
