Client name:University of Birmingham & The Guild of Students
Project name:The Lakeside – Pop-up Dining Hub
Web address:Lakeside website

A COVID-secure outdoor student hub featuring fantastic street food, drinks, live entertainment and game activities for student bubbles at the University to socialise and enjoy a positive freshers experience during the impossibly difficult times of Freshers 2020!

This pop-up event space was planned, procured, approved, licensed and built in just under 20-days, and featured a socially distanced dining space for 300 students, a similarly distanced outdoor cinema for 80 students, and giant games, miniature golf and more!

Lakeside stayed for two weeks and served over 4000 students across that time, gaining credit and praise from students, staff and also West Midlands Police.
