Event Case Study - Aberywysth Freshers Week

Due to the current coronavirus restrictions many universities cancelled their fresher’s week planned entertainment.  Aberystwyth University however decided to put a whole week’s program of entertainment while keeping their students and community safe. 

The week included live artists performing in a studio and conforming to social distancing guidance streamed live on a dedicated website.  

Students could access the stream for free and watch from the comfort of their student housing. The students were also given an option to view the stream on a 9x6m LED screen which was built on the campus following government guidance on social distancing and associated compliance.  Freshers were able to experience the performance at seating areas with table service. 

The week also included a time-coded lighting show outside the university which was played every 30 minutes from 9pm.

Ever changing COVID rules made it a challenging event with rules changing twice within the week.  The team at Light Em Up and Aberystwyth University ensure that all COVID rules were adhered to and made the week successful. 

This shows how events can still be possible even with restrictions in place. We urgently need the UK Government to ease restrictions on events and the industry to show how they can work within the guidance to meet Government restrictions for a ‘safe event’.

The concept of social distancing is possible, as was seen this summer with the first licensed COVID-19 social distancing compliant 6-week outdoor festival in the North East of England. 

An event with a capacity of approximately 2500 attendees, contained within their own social exclusion zone, each zone did not exceed 6 attendees.  

With an appropriate understanding of the virus, how it spreads, the risk response developed to mitigate the spread, this event was awarded an outdoor entertainment license.  

While this was going on in the UK, scientists in Germany received significant funding to determine how COVID-19 spreads at outdoor concerts and sporting events.  Approximately 1,500 healthy volunteers aged between 18 – 50 took part in the live study.  

Back in the UK football clubs have been pressuring the Government through the FA to allow football fans to return and experience live sport following government guidance. As was granted for some Arts and theatre venues in the UK to re-open and allow audience back to their venues.   

Formula 1 have also allowed fans back in the most recent races. Spectators were kept away from the first eight races of this season, but the Italian Tuscan Grand Prix at Mugello allowed in 2,800 fans a day over its three-day weekend on 11-13 September.

With new COVID-19 measure in place in Portugal, the Algarve circuit cut its planned attendance numbers for the weekend's race, capping the number of spectators per day to 27,500, as approved by the local government.
