Skills to pay the bills
We are more than an events company. If you work with us you can access the extensive skillset of an entire team of people!
Our Director of Fun, Beth Heath. Beth’s festivals attract 90,000 visitors and hundreds of exhibitors annually – across the Shrewsbury Food Festival, Shropshire Oktoberfest, Shropshire Kids Festival and Shropshire BizFest. Beth is Chair of Visit Shropshire, Chair of the Shropshire Business Board and also lectures at University Centre Shrewsbury. Beth is one of the most respected local voices in tourism, food and events, and her limitless energy, knowledge and creative ideas will transform anything she touches!
Our in-house PR and marketing team – Shropshire ThinkTank – can help catapult your event or brand with PR, social media, design and marketing support. We can use our press connections and our thousands of social media followers to make sure everyone knows about your brand.
Sid Heath heads Shropshire Creations and Shropshire Tipi Hire – which means he can take our creative ideas and build our dreams – from giant chairs to a staircase for goats! He can also install our tipis to give any event the wow factor.
If you are a food or drink business we can create new opportunities for you through Shropshire Food and Drink and the Shropshire Hamper Company.
We told you we weren’t just an events team!
Fun is at the heart of everything we do. We love to find ways to make people smile – happy people means satisfied customers, and if you can surprise and delight them too, you can ensure they will return. You can’t beat that!

Thought you’d like to know that with your help and focus, we’re already more than doubled our sales . Thank you - La Triestina
"Thank-you" to what was a fantastic Shrewsbury Food Festival. As usual you have surpassed yourself. You and your team of volunteers have managed once again to put Shrewsbury on the map as one, if not the, Food Festival not to be missed. Organisation first class. Friendliness ace. Business super. Weather just right.
'If Carlsberg did Food Festivals, they'd ask Beth to run them!'
'We've had the privilege of working with this human dynamo for several years now and we can honestly say that if you're thinking of hosting an event, look no further than Beth' Katie & Glyn Johnson - Wots Cooking
Everyone has their opinions of course but for me personally, it isn't just the few "big things" which make a difference to an event, it's a series of smaller ones too. And when they are aspects which benefit both the exhibitor AND the paying public, then its win-win-win. This was most definitely the case at Shrewsbury. - Rob Wade - Take me home pies
Testimonials from exhibitors, suppliers and teams - see what they have to say...
Beth was instrumental in the initial phases of the inaugural ‘Cosford Food Festival’. Her workload excluded her from the final stages but I think it’s safe to say that without her enthusiasm and genuine interest, that show might never have happened. It did not prevent her from visiting us and finding the time to talk to us all with huge amounts of encouragement and praise. Thank you Beth, you helped to make our food show work for us at the RAF Museum Cosford. - Peter Bunting, Royal Air Force Museum Cosford
Beth is a dynamic business woman with boundless energy and an incredible local knowledge when organising this massive event. Down to her organisational skills the setting up of the Food Festival is a completely pain-free experience for Ludlow Castle. “ - Sonja Belchere, Ludlow Castle
Beth Heath was a great support and advisor for the Rode Hall Farmers Market. She came to a market and took great trouble to analyse it and look at it from every angle. We then had a very productive meeting and information pack with creative and clever ideas on how to develop the market and other ideas. I would highly recommend her! - Rode Hall Farmers Market
I have worked with Beth, as Chair of FARMA, for many years. Beth has organised our trade show: sourcing applicants; dealing with enquiries beforehand; dealing with enquiries on the day and organising the setting up and dismantling of stands. She is easy to work with, full of enthusiasm, focussed and efficient. Her boundless energy is infectious! - Sally Jackson - FARMA
Working alongside Beth is always a joy; if you've got a hint of an idea or a crazy plan, she'll take it and bring it to life with enthusiasm and positivity. But most importantly you know that everything will be built on a solid foundation of experience and understanding of events; any challenge will have been already thought of and planned for, and no problem can't be solved. Hugely generous and relaxed, it's always a pleasure to work with Beth - Abigail Dakin - Dakin Events
With all her event experience, she’s still never afraid to take on and try new ways of doing things and improving. I would be happy to recommend her for any event and also for the skills that she can bring to others in a consultancy role. I look forward to continuing to work with Beth in the future myself. - Jane Shaw – JS Business admin
