Edge Events Management
Edge Events Management is a company based in Chesterfield which creates and delivers cutting edge events covering all sectors of the events industry. The heart of the company is made up of Richard and Laura Alsop and with over 15 years experience working alongside some of the biggest names, festivals and brands in the world, Rich and Laura have taken the vital ingredients of their experience to deliver an events program that is unique to the area and the people within in it.
Their biggest festival to date is the Chesterfield Food and Drink Festival which has grown year upon year and attracted over 8,000 people to the festival weekend in 2018. The festival concept is to bring people together to celebrate and showcase local produce as well as making the weekend affordable and fun for the whole family, with live music, dance demonstrations, hot and cold food and drink from around the world and children’s activities whilst keeping the event free entry for everyone.
Due to the success and growth of the Chesterfield Food and Drink Festival, the Edge Events team has launched other festivals such as the Street Food and Grooves Festival which started in 2018 and also is set to launch the Bolsover Food and Drink Festival and the Matlock Food and Drink Festival in 2019.
When the team isn’t busy organising events, it is working within the wedding and corporate industry creating bespoke venue styling and entertainment packages for weddings, functions and corporate events.
