Stage Mangement at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games

Tracy Wedderburn started Big Squid in 2019. Moving to Edinburgh in 1998, she set about starting a career in festival and events management. Obviously in the right place, she has now notched up 24 years experience in arts management, event and festival delivery and around 12 in advertising and film production environments. 


In the world of events, working as part of small teams delivering
large-scale productions has provided opportunities to work on every aspect of event planning and delivery.​ She has held a variety of management and production roles including taking the lead on delivering the Open Streets initiative in Edinburgh – the first UK city to roll it out, and seven years as Assistant Manager for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s Street Events.


Open Streets was Big Squid’s first large-scale project. Forming part of Edinburgh’s City Centre Transformation Plan, Open Streets was funded and supported by the Places for Everyone programme which is managed by Sustrans. Open Streets though cut short of its
18-month pilot by the pandemic received much positive feedback from the community. 


Tracy believes a high level of organisation and communication, clarity, respect and great relationships lie at the heart of successful
on-the-day delivery and she has a solid track record of delivering projects on time and on budget. Tracy is often told she has a unique set of project management skills which enable her and her team to take on a diverse range of projects from film shoots to festivals and anything in between. Whatever the project, she is happy to get stuck in and help make some seriously good memories.
