The Brief

Back to products

Harrison Creative were approached  by Tearfund to produce a giant crowd flag for an annual music festival they support , the Big Church Day Out that took place at Wiston House, West Sussex on 25th & 26th May 2019. This event brings together over 20,000 Christians from across UK and Europe in a weekend celebration of music and worship.

Tearfund are a Christian organisation that works alongside local churches, organisations and Christian groups in over 50 countries to help overcome the worst effects of poverty and disasters around the world through a range of activities and community development projects. By sponsoring events like the Big Church Day Out they are helping to raise awareness of where the need for assistance is greatest around the world and raise much needed funds to assist in their missions.

The message that was to be printed on the 15m x 15m giant crowd flag was aimed at encouraging festival-goers to pick up rubbish and maintain a litter-free environment during the festival and beyond and, in line with this message, they were clear that the flag was to be printed on an environmentally-friendly material and come complete with reinforced handles for easy handling and transport around the festival site by their team of volunteers.

What We Did

With the recent launch of our revolutionary recycled flag material – Enviroflag – we were able to deliver exactly what the client wanted. Enviroflag is an environmentally-friendly alternative to knitted polyester that’s made from recycled single-use plastic and can be used as a direct replacement for all of our flags, feather flags, festival flags and giant crowd flags.

Enviroflag has the same durability, strength and versatility of it’s knitted polyester equivalent but with a much lower environmental impact. In addition, thanks to our Fabric Upcycling Scheme, all of our Enviroflag items can be upcycled at the end of their life. Find out more here.

Our events team worked closely with the client and our printing team to ensure the flag was delivered to their exact specifications and in time for the start of the festival event, ready to be unveiled with the help of the festival volunteers and the attendees as the centrepiece for the grand finale of their two-day festival.
