Design and fit out

The 11,500 acre Goodwood Estate in the heart of West Sussex is home to not only summer’s Festival of Speed, but also the Goodwood Revival in autumn; another Goodwood flagship event. GL events UK supplies temporary structures to both events as a long-term contracted partner of the automotive festivals.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is enjoyed by more than 200,000 visitors over four days. The structures provided by GL events UK ensure that the essential festival infrastructure is in place and operations behind the scenes at the festival run smoothly.

Stand-out features at the Goodwood Festival of Speed include a wide range of bespoke, eye-catching structures, built on scaffolding to create different zones and incorporating a variety of stylish roofs, as well as all manner of hospitality structures and trade stands ranging from individual chalets to multi-deck spaces.

One of the best-received structures year on year has been the temporary auction venue, created for Bonhams. GL events UK enjoys a long-standing relationship with the world-famous motoring auctioneer and regularly provides a range of spacious temporary structures for Bonhams, not only in the UK, but also around the world.
