who we are
Best described as an indoor, festival/carnival style music show, Genius Notts mixes big themes with stunning venue transformations.
Genius Notts aim, and number one priority, has always been to remove the stigma of typical U18s events. With airport like security and entry procedures, Shutdown provides as safe an environment as possible, with security, medical and safeguarding/welfare personnel at every event. This approach has allowed Genius Notts to weed out the adverse elements typically associated with U18s events and is the reason why police, councils, licensing authorities, and venues have happily worked with us for so long and helped facilitate our nationwide expansion.
Although Genius Notts is predominantly known for just events, we have seen a growing interest in the educational side of what we do. Speaking about safe events for young adults and the dangers of underage drinking and drug misuse have become another string to our bow as well as the career and raising aspirations we deliver in school. If we can provide fun, safe, unrivalled events for U18s whilst educating at the same time, then we know we are doing the right thing. Our dream is to eventually be able to speak to thousands of young adults and promote our safe haven, Genius Notts events, in schools and colleges across the country
Entry procedure consists of any of the following:
Strict photo ID or age consent form required
Bomb detection dogs
Security dogs (GP)
Bag and body searches
Heavy security presence
Genius Notts has managed to control and remove adverse elements which a typical U18s event may have suffered in the past.
