The Good Life Festival is a massive event for the borough, located in the unmatched natural beauty of Oxford Island. With this event being previously ran in 2013 we knew how great it was and were over the moon when we were awarded the tender to event manage this for the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council.

I know the term “something for everyone” is used for many-an-event but this really was the case for the Good Life Festival. The event space was divided into different ‘zones’, such as ‘Good Ideas,’ ‘Good Laughs,’ “Good Word,’  and ‘Good Food,’ and in each you could find everything from performing mermaids to speciality cakes to poetry and even a Viking Village. This was a 2 day event and saw fantastic crowds on both days despite some typical Northern Irish weather.

Event managing this event took a big team, a lot of communication, attention to detail and a real willingness to be adaptable- all things that we think we’re pretty good at here at BNL Productions. It was a real blast working with the team at the Lough Neagh Nature Reserve and part of us still can’t believe it’s all over.

Thank you to all of our fantastic suppliers that worked with us on this event!
