Starting out as a freelancer in the world of retail and exhibition displays, Martin saw an opportunity to start up his own business in branded concert merchandise in the UK, in conjunction with his brother Harvey GoldsmithРwell known promoter in the music industry.

Martin Goldsmith, Founder Chairman of EML: “I approached Cliff Richard whose words still ring in my ears- ‘Who in the hell wants to buy a T-Shirt with my face on it?’ 40 years later the fans are still buying his swag.”

One of Martin’s greatest days was trading at Wembley Stadium- World Wrestling Federation Summer Slam 1992 (professional wrestling), selling an impressive ¬£1m+. His most pleasurable times have been working with Pavarotti and Live Aid amongst a whole host of renowned artist and events.

Martin has taken a step back from the fast paced merchandise¬†industry, enjoying life loving tennis and jazz (and keeping the office tidy!), whilst the company continues to grow in the hands of his son’s Jeremy and Paul, with the support from a fantastic and loyal team of course!

The BRITs Were A Hit!

Another night to remember for the music industry as fans and critics came together to celebrate a superb year for global music at The BRITs

When February rolls round here at Event HQ we start getting very excited! We start designing and producing merchandise for one of the biggest music events of the year- The BRITs.

This year was another huge hit for the BRITs. The music industry and members of the public congregated at London’s O2 Arena to celebrate another fantastic year for the global chart music. The night was dominated by legend David Bowie, who sadly died last January. The iconic soloist won ‘Best British Male,’ and ‘Best British Album,’ for his stunning album ‘BlackStar.’

This year saw ‘Grime’ enter the fold with grime artist Skepta at the helm and will no doubt¬†be a favourited nominee for BRITs 2018. The 1975 won ‘Best Group’ whilst X Factor girl star group Little Mix won ‘Best Single,’ for the smash hit ‘Shout Out To My Ex.’

It’s 3 years on the trot for Event producing the merch for the BRITs and this year was another triumph. The t-shirts featured nominee emoji’s and also had their relevant hashtags, which were all over Twitter on the night! Our web shop is still selling so why not have a gander and see what we have got for you? *LittleMix fans- T-shirts are now at ¬£15…wink wink, nudge nudge.

After running around the O2 for hours with our feet covered in blisters, we finally got to enjoy the spectacle of the night. Ant and Dec were hilarious! The Weeknd rocked the BRITS School, Coldplay got everyone dancing and Bieber, well it was hard to hear Bieber over his screaming fans! Adele was the queen of the awards on the night and David Bowie was honoured well by Gary Oldman, Annie Lennox and a mesmerising tribute from Lorde.

See below the video of the talented¬†James Bay performing ‘Hold Back The River.’¬†
