The International Festival Festival Milton Keynes is a cultural and arts festival spanning the city over 10 consecutive days. A festival with multi sites and activities, performances and a spectacular finale. ‘All sorts of unpredictable happenings popping up in unexpected places. What other metropolis in Britain could give you such a feast of cutting edge culture?’ The Times
Commbus provided services for the International Festival for the 2012 and 2014 festival.
One of the headline performance pieces for the festival was Under the Vaulted Sky, created by award winning choreographer Rosemary Lee. Over 100 dancers and musicians made up from people from across the region walked the audience on a journey around the beautiful location know as the Cathedral of Trees which was modelled on the architectural footprint of Norwich Cathedral.
A fabulous performance space, that no infrastructure, our events team provided facilities including event trailer storage and our event trailer for the performance to take place and all the back stage facilities required for putting on such a piece.
With a range of indoor performances from music, to comedy to the amazing aerial acrobatics from International performers Casus in the Speigletent at the South Willen Lakes. Our On Location Bus provided the perfect facility for a production office for the Speigletent management crew and festival site manager (also provided by Commbus) on the lower deck, while the upper deck was used by artists for their dressing room.
