Cheshire events agency celebrates 400% growth
Cheshire events agency, Saving Grace Events, is celebrating the growth of both the team and its turnover with a move to new offices in Knutsford town centre.
Established in 2017 by founder Rebecca Hartley, the full-service agency has added three new team members since the start of 2022. Myling Moore joins as marketing assistant with Ramina Iruthayanathan and Samantha Bannister as events assistants. Rebecca Woodhead also formally joined the agency as events manager in December 2021 to focus on festival operations.
Commenting on the office move, Hartley said: “Knutsford is a beautiful town, with a thriving community of varied local businesses. Not only has it been my home for the last 13 years, but it’s also home to Tatton Park where our most recent project the Pop Up Festival is based.
"We want to contribute to the town, collaborate with other local business and be more involved with the local community. Knutsford has been voted one of the best places to live in The Sunday Times multiple times and we want to be a part of what makes it great.“
Tatton Park Pop Up Festival
During the pandemic, Saving Grace Events launched the Tatton Park Pop Up Festival, creating over 100 jobs and securing employment for over 80 performers. Cheshire’s first socially distanced outdoor festival took place over 10 weeks from June-August 2021 and was attended by over 20,000 visitors.
Generating over £1m, this quadrupled the agency’s total turnover for the year. Tickets for the 2022 Festival went on sale at the beginning of the year, with £100,000 of tickets sold in the first two months.
The Saving Grace Events team have already secured a corporate event in Croatia for long-standing client, Five Guys, The Natalie Kate Moss Trusts’ 10 year anniversary fundraiser and a Jubilee event for Morris Homes, along with the return of the Tatton Park Pop Up Festival in summer 2022.
