UK – Towersey Festival will celebrate its 58th edition in the stunning new location of Claydon Estate, Buckinghamshire, over the August Bank Holiday weekend, headlined by BRIT and Ivor Novello award-winning singer-songwriter, Tom Odell.

After a two-year hiatus, Towersey Festival, the oldest independent festival in the UK, returns with its biggest line-up yet with Del Amitri Kate Rusby Turin Brakes, Anaïs Mitchell and Bill Bailey amongst the talent booked for 2022.

As the festival prepares for a period of extensive growth, promoters have bolstered the stage production and event management team bringing on technical and creative event specialist One Big Star and event production pioneers Engine Number 4.

One Big Star, has been a supplier of Towersey for several years, will take over the stage production in full in 2022. Based in Newark, One Big Star has many years’ experience in the live events industry and this move is one that has been in discussion for some time.

Festival director, Joe Heap said: “We have worked with Chris and Steve from One Big Star for a number of years now and they really get the whole ethos of the Towersey family. We are one team when it comes to producing this event and as such, we all look out for each other and work as one. One Big Star are a family business, like us, so they are a great fit.

“It's a move we have wanted for a while. A way of streamlining and uniforming the stages, and the right way to go as the festival looks to grow over the coming years.”

Engine No 4 will take over the running of the site and site operations for the live event. Experts in their field, they produce and manage some of the UK's biggest most popular shows including Kendal Calling, Lost Village, Parklife, BlueDot and many more.

Project manager, Jim Gee said: “We feel very privileged to be invited into the Towersey family at this pivotal moment in it’s long history, and we look forward to working with the team to help ensure a solid and prosperous future for the festival.”

“We are so thrilled to have these guys working with us,” said Joe. “We have needed partnership in this area for some time to allow the festival to move forward and allow the Towersey team more room to create and steer the direction of this famous event. And we couldn’t ask for more experienced and trusted people.”

One Big Star and Engine No. 4’s production and event management expertise will allow Towersey to push forward with some ambitious growth plans for the festival. Later this year, the company will embark on a venture capital raising with a focus on future proofing and the hugely successful festival for another 50 years.
