Last month Caboose & Co. turned 3 year’s old, and thanks to Covid-19 we haven’t been able to celebrate in our normal fashion. So, we were looking back on the last 3 years and thought instead we’d celebrate our clients who have been with us on this journey, as we know they are all having a tough time along with everyone in the event’s industry.
It all started back in the middle of 2017 when we took our first Cabooses to The Open for The R&A. They have been a fantastic supporter of our company, and we have worked with them to develop The Open Camping Village so that every year it can provide more free accommodation for young people and families who wish to visit The Open. Sadly, The Open has been cancelled this year, so there is a huge task in moving everything to 2021.
Since that first event we have taken our Cabooses to the Moto GP at Silverstone, Winterville for Project Power, the Cheltenham and Hay Festivals, the Royal International Air Tattoo, the Big Feastival for IMG, the Ryder Cup in Paris and several Malvern County Fairs with IE Live. In 2019 we started working with Hotel Bell Tent who took our Cabooses for their guests at the F1 British GP at Silverstone, Love Supreme, Eldorado Festival, Car Fest North and The Long Road Festival. We also added Download Festival for VIP Nation and Glastonbury with Winding Lake Farm. This summer we have been looking forward seeing all our clients again and to going to Eisteddfod and The AutoPot Summer Social for the first time, but most have or are likely to be cancelled.
So many highly skilled and professional people work their socks off to make these incredible events happen and they are experiencing unprecedented times due to the uncertainty of events this year and next. We can’t plan if we don’t know when and what to plan for – we hope everyone gets through this difficult period and come back stronger than ever.
We’ve also welcomed so many fantastic guests who’ve loved staying in their Caboose, and we hope to be welcoming many more in the near future.
A big thanks to all our clients – hope to see you all very soon (not just on Zoom).
