Guest Blog | Jess Shanahan @ BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

This year BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend landed in Norwich, which is quite a big deal when you consider how out of the way we are. When the news hit that we would be hosting this outdoor event, everyone was getting excited about Taylor Swift on the Sunday. I might be rock to the core but I can’t say no to a bit of Swifty.

SHOP FESTIVAL

18192521261_85c49ac2c5_z

 

That being said, I only managed to secure tickets for the Saturday and what a stroke of luck that was. Snoop Dogg, Muse, Fall Out Boy and some great new bands on the Introducing stage. It was the Introducing stage we found ourselves at as Kill it Kid was playing. What a fantastic way to start the day, I’ve found a new band to add to my road trip playlist!

After this, we headed to the In New Music We Trust tent to prepare for Snoop. The thought of Snoop Dogg in Norwich was a little too much to handle for some people and I’m still not sure it was real. The crowd erupted when the rapper walked onto stage but I’ve never seen such a show of collective realisation as when we all noticed that he was wearing a Norwich City shirt. It was a surreal thing to behold and I think I was so baffled and yet full of glee that I didn’t really pay attention to the first few songs. I think Snoop Dogg was well aware that no one in Norwich was going to recognise some of his more obscure music so he played the hits then moved onto some fantastic covers that had us jumping, singing and dancing.

We caught the end of Ella Eyre too and I was fully prepared to not know any of her music but I was captivated by a shiny catsuit and glittery face paint.

From this point onwards I was getting excited because the bands and artists to come were some of my favourites. Next up was Fall Out Boy, a band I know I like but not necessarily a band I’ve heard lots of. I was wrong; I was singing and dancing along to every song! A quick stop for some food (the mighty Bullitt Burgers were there so it made the decision easy) and then it was back to the main stage for David Guetta where I had my own mini rave.

Florence and The Machine was one of the acts I was really looking forward to seeing and Florence herself hobbled on with a broken foot, meaning she had to sit down for the whole set. Not a problem, though, her voice is amazing, the music fantastic and I had goosebumps the whole time. It’s a pity we couldn’t see her jump around on stage (which is how she sustained the injury) but it was a pleasure to experience Florence and The Machine. We had a choice at that point to either hang around to get a good position for the mighty Muse (or Moooos as we say here in Norfolk) or to head off to see Rudimental. Eventually we decided to hang out for Muse as it was a nightmare trying to wade through people to the other stage. I’m a little sad to have missed Rudimental but it was worth it for the near-front central position we found ourselves in.

Jess Shanahan profile

All in all, Saturday at The Big Weekend in Norwich was a surreal experience. Muse, Fall Out Boy, David Guetta, Ruidmental, The Vaccines, Ella Eyre, Ben Howard and Snoop Dogg (in a Norwich City shirt) all in our Fine City was a great experience and I’m so glad I had the chance to go.

OFFICE @ Henley Royal Regatta #outofoffice15

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Yesterday we had the pleasure of attending Henley Royal Regatta in Oxfordshire on the hottest day of the year. What could be better than watching the rowing races and sipping cold drinks in the glorious sunshine.

Henley_blog_v2

All the guest were in their smartest summer attire, the ladies opting for dresses, heels and hats and the gentleman wearing summer suits, boater hats and Timberland boat shoes.

Accompanying us to this grand event were some key members from menswear press all wearing their fave OFFICE shoes for summer, which included the Pansy Sandal, Garland Block Heel and Soho Heel.

After enjoying the delicious canapés, a 4 course dinner and of course some traditional afternoon tea we sat with our feet in the river cheering on the rowers.

 

The outfits and the beautiful English countryside felt like we had stepped back in time and it was great to see the men’s fashion remaining very traditional at the Regatta. Striped blazers, boater hats, boat shoes and chinos was the outfit of choice for the guys and it was nice to see men dominating the fashion for a change. The woman obviously looked great, but the boys definitely stood out at the Regatta.

The full Regatta look might be a bit extreme for some guys but it is great inspiration for when dressing for other summer events. Boat shoes like our Timberland Exclusive or the classic Heritage 2 Eye are great to pair with chinos and a shirt for garden parties, wedding receptions and posh picnics in the park.

We couldn’t of asked for a more beautiful day surrounded by lovely scenery, it truly was a proper English day out in the countryside.
