From open days, functions and the odd State or Royal visit, the founder of DJ Services Cornwall, Allan Cross a.k.a DJ Cornwall, is no stranger to planning and delivering events where attention to detail is critical.
Allan Cross – Major
The journey began when Allan retired from the army after completing a career serving in both The Royal Corps of Transport and The Royal Logistics Corps. As a result he’s hands-on and has a flair for problem solving, co-ordination of team members and delivering results. These are all extremely useful skills as a professional DJ!
Because of Allan’s vast experience of functions, events and hospitality he has built up a wealth of knowledge and finally retired as a Late Entry Major. “Improvise, adapt and overcome” was as true in the Services as it is in the Corporate Hospitality Environment.
Allan Cross – Event Manager
Next, Allan utilised all these skills and experience by moving into Events Management and established NWF Events in 2006. NWF Events masterminded and delivered the first ever National Windsurfing Festival, in conjunction with Fat Face as a sponsor. Four years later, Allan remodelled the festival to encompass SUP (Stand Up Paddle boarding), Kayaking and Kitesurfing as well as Windsurfing, giving rise to what is now The National Watersports Festival (NWF).
Now in its 11th year, the NWF has gone from strength to strength. The NWF is now the 2nd largest mass participation, multi-disciplinary watersports festival in Europe. Despite it’s size, Allan is still hands-on and remains responsible for all aspects of event management, including marketing, sponsorship, health and safety and obviously, the music!
In addition to the NWF, Allan also delivered the Clacton Sea & Beach Festival 2016 which attracted 50k footfall.
Now having driven over 25,000 miles around the country delivering these type of major events, Allan has decided to start working closer to home on a new venture and passion.
“My true passion and pleasure come from music. Both myself and my wife Linda have vast experience within the hospitality and customer service industries. It made perfect sense to put our joint experience to good use. That is how DJ Services Cornwall was born. We utilise many years of event management to deliver a personal & special experience to our customers.”
