TO GIVE BURNLEY (LANCASHIRE) SOMETHING IT DESPERATLEY NEEDS AND WANTS OF WHICH THE PEOPLE OF THE AREA DESERVE AND WOULD LOVE!

 

We are raising funds in order to put on a spectacular,unique and demanding festival  to Lancashire in a town called Burnley, I will be providing families of all backgrounds,religions and races a music festival like no other in existence along with providing major headlining international artists/talent in which will entice thousands of people of various ages, backgrounds and races to attend in what is sure to be a show stopping festival. I have planned for the initial festival to take place on 12th May 2018 on a single day basis. It will be a one day festival initially which will accomate everybody, there will be all the usual food stalls, fun fairs and many more facilities, it will also allow young aspiring artists/performers to demonstrate their talent along the big names in the industry, along with making it possible for small indepent businesses and brands to be able to promote their businesses/brands and raise awareness!

The festival has already  attracted  worldwide know artists who wish to become involved in such a major contribution to the local area. I plan to make major contributions into the local area such as providing work on a yearly occasion to out of work local people, the job roles that will be available are vast ranging from cleaners to the likes of fully trained door supervisors to the likes of bar staff which will be trained in-house. I will also introduce Burnley as a town and Lancashire as a county to a whole new offering in the range to providing such an occasion, this will inevitably boost the economy of our great town along with drastically increasing demand of tourism to the town of Burnley which will encourage local retailers and independent businesses to flourish. The major improvement I wish to contribute to the area is giving something back to the people of Burnley and its surrounding areas by bringing a major festival back to the town with big names within the industry and I believe working closely with the council I can make this reality after all I am a local entrepreneur who has already achieved great success and I wish to continue this as well as watching my home town develop and improve its economy and social wellbeing. I am from Burnley, currently been in the events management business for approximately 4 years of which I have had the pleasure of working with some of the biggest names to embrace the world within the industry. 

 I have already spoke to some major influencing bodies in the local areas ranging from football clubs to radio stations to newspapers and even small nightclubs, they are all in favor are supporting this coming to the town. I have made every enquiry from booking the talents to the venue to the planning etc. I aim to bring a day family festival to Burnley which will accommodate and attract 40,000 people on a Saturday during the summer of 2018 then continuously grown and develop so we can increase the exposure and attendance and this will play benefits on the people and economy of Burnley and its surrounding areas. I am hoping to implement the growth and development that other festivals have contributed to the areas they perform in such as Parklife in Manchester, they first started off with a single day festival for 40,000 people and resulting from continuous investment, development and professional provisions in place they have grown it into a weekend festival with around 75,000 people attending each day and something like this is possible to replicate especially with it being a niche in the market and offering family’s to attend rather than limiting the target audience to over 18s, this is a festival which will consist of everything all the family can enjoy and relate to, it truly is destined to be a great cause and occasion to hit the town of burnley. The demand of something so spectacular is clearly in place with many MP's, influential bodies in the town and county and the people of the town in favor to bring a festival of this caliber to Burnley. 

  

 

We aim to bring the likes of Tinie Tempah, Bugzy Malone, Tom Zanetti, Basshunter, Union J, Yess Lad, Tinchy Stryder, Pro Green and many more to such an occassion so its true every age group and generation will have an enjoyable time!

-Contribute to the area by providing local people the opportunity to work, gain respected references and develop work skills. Which will influence potential full time employment becoming available. 

-Provide a route which can and most definitely will improve the local economy. 

-Support local independent businesses and also large chains by bringing more people to the town who will inevitably input finances into the local economy and businesses. 

-Provide development and growth to Burnley by making it a place where people wish to travel to which will influence an increase in tourism to the area and this will inevitably contribute to growth in our economy and local businesses developments. 

-Give the local people a large scale attraction that they would be required to travel a long distance to experience and be part of. Something they can say they are proud of and happy its part of our towns yearly events. 

-Put Burnley and Lancashire on the map by brining such a high caliber festival to the area along with ensuring it will be an established and continuous occasion for many years to come. 

-Giving the opportunity to local unseen talent to perform in front of a crowd where they may be able to exploit their talents and develop and become noticed by influential people who could help them make a career of this. 

-Making an occasion available where we can bring together many backgrounds, races, religions, ages and use the form of music and entertainment in order to make a day that everyone from children to grandparent can enjoy in a safe environment.  This is a huge thing for our current era when you take in to account all the evil things happening recently!

-Provide the  an established occasion and relatable brand which will be taking part on a yearly basis and contributing to the local economy and having a positive effect on people’s lives.

-Give people the availability to see artists they could only dream of being able to watch. Some artists have been in discussion with will solely be exclusive to our festival for the UK. 

-Provide an occasion which is very much demanded but hasn’t been made available.

-Provide full time jobs to local people, by investing in their training and development to be in a position to join the Encrypted Promotions team.

 

I am bringing a business plan that involves what I have already been successfully demonstrating over the past 3.5 years. The Business is structured and I have already put the foundations in to take it to the next level and influence its undoubted potential success. The Business is Events Management and Planning predominately concentrating its main operating activities as festival/outdoor concerts. I have already made all the initial enquiries to venues, arenas, stadiums, acts and artists, event contractor’s so i can assure you all the plans are in place and pre-booked pending confirmation. I just need the funding to make it a reality and make our beloved town Burnley great again. With a superb track record full of success behind me, i can vouch to be able to provide all the mechanics of the operation to make it a success. 

The focal point of the business plan is to bring a unique and demanding festival  to Lancashire in a town called Burnley, I will be exploiting the niche market of providing a family music festival like no other in existence along with providing major headlining international artists/talent in which will entice thousands of people of various ages, backgrounds and races to attend in what is sure to be a show stopping festival. I have planned for the initial festival to take place on 12th May 2018 on a single day basis. 

I wish to use my expertise of knowledge within the industry, my ability to attract and book worldwide know artists for discounted fees in order to support my contribution to the local area. I plan to make major contributions into the local area such as providing work on a yearly occasion to out of work local people, the job roles that will be available are vast ranging from cleaners to the likes of fully trained door supervisors to the likes of bar staff which will be trained in-house. I will also introduce Burnley as a town and Lancashire as a county to a whole new offering in the range to providing such an occasion, this will inevitably boost the economy of our great town along with drastically increasing demand of tourism to the town of Burnley which will encourage local retailers and independent businesses to flourish. The major improvement I wish to contribute to the area is giving something back to the people of Burnley and its surrounding areas by bringing a major festival back to the town with big names within the industry and I believe working closely with the council I can make this reality after all I am a local entrepreneur who has already achieved great success and I wish to continue this as well as watching my home town develop and improve its economy and social wellbeing. I am from Burnley, currently been in the events management business for approximately 4 years of which I have had the pleasure of working with some of the biggest names to embrace the world within the industry. I have a detailed proposal already prepared which I have attached to this business plan in order to take to whom I am required to in order to bring something like this to Burnley, I have contacts in every area of the industry so I am sure to make this something that will become an established occasion for Burnleys foreseeable future.  

I am looking to replicate and improve something that has previously been a success in Burnley which I am aware took place in 2011 when i was just beginning to get involved in events management that a company called Livewyre attempted to bring this to the town, they of which succeeded but due to other commitments and investments they went into liquidation, I have a proposal that will bring bigger and more known talents to the town along with giving local talents an opportunity to demonstrate their ability, provide more jobs to local people during the term of the festival, provide more tourist attractions to the town by putting it on the map. I have already spoke to some major influencing bodies in the local areas ranging from football clubs to radio stations to newspapers and even small nightclubs, they are all in favor are supporting this coming to the town. I have made every enquiry from booking the talents to the venue to the planning etc. I aim to bring a day family festival to Burnley which will accommodate and attract 40,000 people on a Saturday during the summer of 2017 then continuously grown and develop so we can increase the exposure and attendance and this will play benefits on the people and economy of Burnley and its surrounding areas. I am hoping to implement the growth and development that other festivals have contributed to the areas they perform in such as Parklife in Manchester, they first started off with a single day festival for 40,000 people and resulting from continuous investment, development and professional provisions in place they have grown it into a weekend festival with around 75,000 people attending each day and something like this is possible to replicate especially with it being a niche in the market and offering family’s to attend rather than limiting the target audience to over 18s, this is a festival which will consist of everything all the family can enjoy and relate to, it truly is destined to be a great cause and occasion to hit the town of burnley. The demand of something so spectacular is clearly in place with many MP's, influential bodies in the town and county and the people of the town in favor to bring a festival of this caliber to Burnley. 

THIS IS IMPORTANT TO ME AS BURNLEY IS MY HOME, I FEEL AFTER EVERYTHING I HAVE ACHIEVED THE ONE THING THAT WOULD BEAT ALL MY CURRENT ACHIEVEMENTS IS TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK TO THE PEOPLE OF MY TOWN AND ITS FUTURE GENERATION AND SOLELY PROVIDE AN OCCASSION WHERE THE ENTIRE TOWN CAN COME TOGETHER AS ONE UNIT AND ENJOY THEMSELVES AND EMBRACE ONE ANOTHER!
