However elaborate your plans, we can source and manage partners to deliver an astounding event. Musicians and dancers, artists and designers, vehicles and rides, entertainers and performers, animal handlers and re-enactors, photographers and filmmakers: our contacts book is extensive and our collaborators are enthusiastic friends to your event.

Providing additional capacity and experienced support in any aspect of event planning and management: an extra pair of hands technical areas such as strategic planning, feasibility reports, risk assessments, road closure and traffic management plans or in time consuming team building and training lowers risks and ensures your plans go smoothly.

Managing design, print, publicity, press and social media campaigns, we create sustainable profiles and effective multi-channel narratives for clients’ events. Media partnerships are a particular specialism with hands-on PRs ensuring both airtime and column inches for your event while our skilled social media team rapidly builds enthused and engaged followers for your events.

Events that ensure people have a good time while raising money for charity are what we love to do most. Dinners, auctions, fairs, festivals, and activity days have all made tremendous amounts of money for good causes and we enjoy the challenge of delivering inventive, creative and unusual opportunities to support the work of the voluntary sector.

In both the public and private sectors our Directors have spent years honing their skills in creating and managing events that gather engaged communities around products and services. From product launches to staff conferences, our creative, innovative and cost effective events means your plans are in safe hands.

Building a community around an event is how the Happening up North story began. Working hand in hand with local groups we bring people together to achieve far more than those groups believe is possible. Fundraising, community cohesion, regeneration, confidence and skills building: Happening up North’s events have delivered it all.
