Chris co-founded the award-winning Boomtown Fair, an event at the cutting edge of the festival experience, both in scale and imagination. Part festival and part ongoing immersive theatre, each year Chris and the team create a city of wonderment at Boomtown with intricate stages and streets brimming with theatre, escapism and community.
Chris is committed to making Boomtown sustainable – they have been working with Energy Revolution for the last three years to tackle audience travel emissions and they are a Vision:2025 festival – pledged to aim to half their CO2 impacts by 2025.
“Energy Revolution provides us with the tools, confidence and communications to work with our audience and suppliers to balance travel emissions. “ Chris Rutherford, Director at Boomtown.”
