Summer So Far

Summer is always a busy period in Events calendar, but we are proud to have supplied merchandise for some fantastic events

It’s been a funny old Summer- England’s European Championship campaign ended in embarrassment and we’ve seen more rain than sun, but at least Murray won Wimbledon eh! But the negatives haven’t got to us, we have battled through the downpour and have seen a successful Summer so far, supplying merchandise across a range of events.

First, we made a pit stop at Formula E in London. The fast paced environment was riveting to be part of, and it was a joy to see petrol-head fans buying our range of apparel and accessories for the event.

Farnborough Airshow

Event then flew over to sell merchandise at the Farnborough Airshow. The airshow is split into two events, the first 5 days of the event are regarded as ‘trade show.’ This year saw a remarkable deal secured by former Prime Minister David Cameron with Boeing, forming a new defence partnership . Following the news of a new defence deal  the weekend came and the trade show evolved into the public show, where the public could attend the airshow and watch the impressive aeroplanes in full flight flying in formations, performing tricks and displaying stunning scenes in the sunny skies.  Event provided a range of merchandise which is still available to purchase online on our web shop

America’s Cup

You may have seen this event on the news recently as it was the return of the America’s Cup. Thankfully the weather wasn’t as torturous as last time, the sun shone high in the Portsmouth sky and we can honestly say we have never seen crowds like it! Everything was smooth sailing for Event and it was amazing to be have been at the America’s Cup.

Summer has only just begun in our eyes, we still have a full calendar of events we are part of including Tough Mudder, The Big Feastival and we are proud to be the official merchandise for the YouTube sensation Dan TDM tour which is nearly sold out in all venues. Plus we are supplying merchandise at the Olympic Park Fanzone for the duration of the Rio Olympic Games , come on Great Britain! Come down and show your support! You can purchase your Team GB Bahia Bands at our shop.  See our slideshow for more pictures from our events.

This weekend was the first Tough Mudder event of 2016 where we supplied over 100,000 performance finisher t-shirts.

Thousand upon thousand turned up to Henley on Thames to brave the brutal battle that is Tough Mudder. It is a sticky and tricky endurance test, putting competitors out of their comfort zone by completing a 10-12 mile muddy obstacle course.

Thankfully the weather was glorious (imagined if it rained). And although none of the Event team stepped up to the challenge of competing….we were on hand to provide over 100,000 performance finisher t-shirts. It was a mud-tastic day!

 

 

The next event is Tough Mudder Midlands Half on 14th May where ‘mudees,’ can expect to see us supplying finisher t-shirts and mudder merchandise.

Invictus Games On Air

BBC Radio 2 were discussing the importance of the Invictus Games Foundation, which we are the proud suppliers of games merchandise. 

Radio presenter Chris Evans was joined in the studio by athlete and Invictus star David Wiseman, who was speaking about the upcoming Invictus Games in Orlando on the 8th May. David won two gold and two silver medals during the 2014 Games and he was telling listeners how the event was something for everyone.

The Games are now into their second year, and without doubt the event is truly a rousing, inspirational and triumphant event. The aim is to reach out to ex-servicemen and women and engage them to participate in the Games, watched by thousands of spectators.

David was also joined by a familiar face who greeted Chris Evans with ‘morning ginge.’ Listen to what the two guests had to say about the fantastic sporting event.

The Invictus Games are just around the corner now, so if you would like to be wearing the famous Invictus gear, then visit our website to ensure your delivery arrives before the games commence! Invictus Games Webshop 

Remember, our merchandise will not be sold at the event, it is only available online.

Listen to what the two gingers in the studio were chatting about….
