CREST were privileged to be invited to work with Bedford Borough Council and deploy our Halo software at their bi-annual Bedford River Festival event on 14th & 15th July. This is the second largest community event in the UK (the first being Notting Hill Carnival) where an estimated 350,000 people are in attendance.
As this was their 40th anniversary it was billed to be their biggest and best yet and it certainly didn’t disappoint with a full weekend of family friendly activities, several stages, a fun fair and countless concessions and stalls spread out across a large footprint with a river running through the middle!!
Halo faced its biggest challenge yet and we’re very proud our software performed beyond expectations, providing an excellent communications platform for un-parralled command and control – helping to re-unite families with their lost children and keep 350,000 people safe.
It was a fantastic event to be a part of, thank you for having us!
