Shutdown Events was established in 2014 in their home town of Burnley. Shutdown has had previous experience in the events/nightlife industry from doing their over 18 events, from this they then decided to try and tackle the younger market to be able to get interest from a young audience to then, once they came of age, be able to pass them on to their over 18’s brand Grenade. Shutdown quickly made a name for themselves in Burnley and soon started to attract clientele from out of the town and further, with each event more and more people talking about it and their experience of the night. Within 6 months they branched into a second area, their reputation continued to grow rapidly and the following 8 months saw them branch into another 4 towns/cities. It was at this stage Shutdown realised the had created something special and a brand in which both clients and parents recognised as a trusted brand. They were also happy to find that they were starting to gain huge support from the police and local councils, as they could see the good Shutdown were bringing to the areas.
Within the first 2 years Shutdown became the UK’s largest leading U18’s brand! They now tour the country every couple of months from as high up as Scotland to as far down as Newquay hosting some of the most talked about events in the area. These events include bringing some of the biggest names in the music industry, PA’s from some of the most popular reality tv shows, paint & foam parties, Co2 & confetti parties + much more. Shutdown has now hosted events across 10+ towns/cities nationwide.
With their social media constantly growing they were getting requests from more and more clients across the country asking them to come to a town/city near them, because of this Shutdown are continuing to grow and build such a high in demand brand on a weekly basis.
