Blue Frontier will be ‘surfing up a storm’ this summer at the Southampton Seaside in the Square event, running from 19th July to the 11th August 2019. For the second year running, the Guildhall square in the cultural hub of the city will be transformed into an urban beach, hosting numerous events throughout each day and offering a unique opportunity for networking and to enjoy the Costa del Soton!
This year as part of our ongoing partnership with Go! Southampton, we are sponsoring the increasingly popular summer spectacular, Seaside in the Square. With 70 tonnes of sand, deckchairs, full volleyball courts, live music and plenty more, we felt it was too good to miss out on! The idea behind the event is to raise the profile of the city and bring local residents and businesses together.
Our resident photography expert and videographer Nick Layton will be opening the seaside event by running a presentation in the Square from 8.30am on Friday the 19th July. Forming part of our monthly Go! Digital Southampton Workshops, these popular sessions are free for members of the Southampton BID and cover a range of topics around Digital Marketing, with this particular event focusing on Video.
Nick has a great deal of experience capturing video and photos in the IT, retail and travel industries and he will be sharing insight and tips into creatively using video in your business. He will be talking about cameras as well as giving a general insight into the impact different types of media can have on your business, and he will also answer questions from the attendees.
As an official event sponsor, we thought we would make a splash at the event this year. You will be able to find the Blue Frontier team on the beach from 12 noon to 8 pm on Friday 26th July manning a surfboard simulator, similar in operation to a mechanical rodeo. There is no need to head to the beach when you can ride the waves in the middle of town!
Why not pop on down and get involved? We will be running a competition to see who can last the longest on the board and be king or queen of the waves, as well as encouraging people to simply have a go - You might surprise yourself! We are looking to raise awareness of Blue Frontier as a Digital Agency in Southampton and the local area, to network with other local businesses and engage with the wider community in order to find out more about those who live and work around us.
There will be a whole host of activities and fun to be had on the sand, with other event sponsors Decathlon and Rees Leisure providing the chance to try out new sports for free through taster sessions, while the surrounding restaurants and cafes are perfect for when you get a little peckish.
If you build up a thirst, you may want to head to the Orange Rooms bar for a refreshing drink and for those who are more eager to sit and enjoy the beach setting, there will be plenty of deck chairs to lay back in. There are even some film nights planned to enjoy the long summer evenings and live music until the close of play. Our very own superstar DJ Matt Kerley will also be dropping tunes on Sunday 21st July and Saturday 27th July, so don’t miss out!
