Graduation on the beach

The Arts University Bournemouth host a prestigious graduation event and approached us to organise the champagne reception event for over 3,000 of their guests. We have been event managing and producing this since 2015.

  • Location: Bournemouth Beach

  • Event requires full council, police, environmental health and fire service involvement which we manage for the client 

  • 50m x 25m marquee installation on the beach 

  • Full event management, build and delivery of the event 

  • Full event production including marquee build, event furniture, generator and power distribution, temporary toilets, fencing, refrigerated vehicles, staffing and more 

  • 30x event crew

  • 3,000 guests across 2 days

  • In partnership since 2015

The Venue

Making the most of the Bournemouth seaside views


With no venues in the area accommodating for this volume of people whilst making the most of the stunning sea views, we revised our strategy and decided to host the event in a temporary structure marquee.

As this is a public beach area, our services had to include writing full event management plans, attending SAG meetings, collating supplier risk assessments and insurances as well as council meetings on site to ensure health and safety. The site only has vehicular access between the restricted hours of 6am-9am and then again 6pm-6.45pm across a public thoroughfare meaning that a very detailed build schedule, installation and de-set is required.

The Outcome

The clients were extremely happy with the event.


“I cannot praise the Seventa Team enough, what a team! I have come from a varied events background myself however there are not many companies that are as accommodating and attentive as Seventa. Nothing is ever a problem. The event has always run smoothly, on time and within budget.”
