Olly on Elektrik3 – ““After the success of our first two years and the great feedback we’ve been getting I have been determined not to let my move to France effect Elektrik 3′s momentum. I’m proud to say that this year we’ve added to our venue base with the fantastic Maidenhead RFC and their all singing all weather pitch, appointed Txema Garcia as our head of catering to drive EAT elektrik to new heights and are continuing to develop the Elektrik 3 experience with people like Global Games who’s products were a massive hit with everyone last year. We’re also delighted to welcome catering big hitter Thomas Franks as one of our major sponsors. Their expertise and support will compliment the work of Txema Garcia and myself with EAT elektrik and mean we can really look to develop this aspect of the camps.
We have a lot of exciting things on the horizon but right now I’m committed to making this years camp’s our best yet.”.”
