Community event hands five-year deal to REM

The London Borough of Bexley’s Danson Festival has awarded a five-year event management contract to Richmond Event Management (REM).

The two day community-based event, which takes place annually in July, has five stages and attracts over 25,000 people per day.

The contract follows REM’s successful delivery of the festival over the last two years. The key was REM’s ability to deliver better value for money for Bexley Council without compromising on quality and content variety. The event management company has pledged to continue to bring together a top level production with a varied entertainment programme that reflects the diverse local community.

Celebrating diversity: Last's year's Danson Festival

Another important consideration was that, over the last two years, REM has returned Danson Park, where the event is held (and which was named London’s Best Park in 2007 by London in Bloom), to a pristine condition after the festival. What’s more, the entire production maintained the highest standards of health and safety throughout.

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with the London Borough of Bexley,” said Jim Davey, REM’s project manager for the Danson Festival. “The longevity of the contract allows REM to further develop the cultural programmes of activity at the event, in a strategically important part of London. It gives us a unique opportunity to grow the festival and support our client in their aim of celebrating and developing the cultural community in the area.”
