Stephen C Associates

Stephen C Associates Ltd is a local events creation management company established six years-ago by Mr Stephen McManus CEO who, with 33 years of experience in the catering, events and hospitality sector organising events across the world, fell in love with the Dorset countryside and decided to move to Poole.

Stephen visited Upton House and Country Park, loved the setting and Upton House Music Festival was born.
Upton Country Park Management were very delighted and excited by what Stephen C Associates Ltd had to offer.

Not only does the company cater for all ages and tastes of music but provides a selection of ticketing options for any occasion from a picnic on the lawn, to high end hospitality VIP catering. This has been a popular option for corporate hospitality, people celebrating special occasions as well as a family fun evening out all on the same nights.

Last June, Upton House Music Festival was inundated with praise for their operational skills. People commented on the speed of ingress and egress, the quality of the food and drink, great entertainment, and the special warm atmosphere and even the wonderful toilets complete with flower arrangements! “It just feels so different to your usual music concerts”, said Mrs Williams of Broadstone, “Yesterday, we were here as a family on a rug on the grass with sandwiches in our jeans and today we came back for our 10 th wedding anniversary dressed up in a DJ and evening dress! The food was wonderful, the staff extremely helpful, fresh flowers on the table, a lovely anniversary card from SCA and the music was exhilarating! It could not have been a more wonderful evening on both occasions.”

With the success of last June, Stephen C Associates Ltd., has been invited to continue annual concerts on the lawns and are looking to make them even bigger and better for 2017. This next June’s 2017 spectacular brings an even bigger line-up: Classical Night!: Bryn Terfel, Escala, 80’s Night!: Billy Ocean, Kim Wilde and Toyah and keep watching for the big Star Night! - announced in January 2017.
