Shutdown Events Is Redefining What It Means To Have Fun
Shutdown events are redefining what it means to have fun and enjoy the moment in the country. Since the past year where many event establishments were ravished because of the limitation on social excitement, Shutdown is coming out of this hurdle, stronger and better.
Chris Sarchet Bell is the founder of Shutdown events, a brand that focuses on hosting events for kids and teenagers between the ages of 14 and 17 years old, with the aim of creating an atmosphere where these young adults can have fun and be free
He first established his brand in his hometown, Burnley, in 2014 where his target of business was the over 18s. After gathering enough experience in his nightlife establishment, Shutdown took a turnover in its interest and started to organize shows for the U18s across the country. Because of the stigma of adult themes that are normally attached to raves, Shutdown had to take innovative steps in redefining its position on entertainment so as to garner the trust and permission of the police and parents in the society alike.
Now a homegrown name in the country, Shutdown has toured from as high up as Scotland to as far down as Newquay hosting some of the most talked-about events in the area. With the colorful party and foam parties, it has also invited celebrity guests to attract attention.
The most important aspect of the concerts and programs organized by Chris Sarchet and his Shutdown Events team is that they are value-driven. As a brand, they bring changes to the social norms in a positive way. These events give young adults the experience they need and seek in the entertainment world.
“We offer the night of your life for 14 to 17 years old before they are legally allowed to go out to events”. Chris states.
He further explained that his brand aims to solve social problems by educating kids and young adults.
“We educate kids that they don’t have to drink to have a good time”.
Also, Chris and his brand are creating a synergy in the entertainment industry by advocating for unity and togetherness in striving to achieve a common goal. He says:
“We unite probably the greatest names in the music business, originally, we would bring PAs from the most famous reality television shows, paint and foam parties, confetti parties and so on. But now, it is all about bringing those acts that you thought you wouldn’t see, in wild theme venue transformations and huge production with fire, pyros and laser shows”.
