What lens(es) are you using now? What make them insufficient for this event shoot? – Dan Wolfgang May 18 '12 at 19:15
I would get nothing less than the Nikon 200mm f/2G AF-S ED VR II. Done. – dpollitt May 18 '12 at 19:41
f/8 and be there! – Alen May 18 '12 at 19:57
I would buy <insert any lens you want>. Outside, in bright light, just about anything works. – rfusca May 18 '12 at 20:25
18mm to xxx mm zoom made by yyy where xxx is as large as you can reasonably achieve and yyy is a maker who is as dear as you can unreasonably afford. How much is "on a budget". – Russell McMahon May 18 '12 at 21:26

As budget and flexibility seem to be the requirements then try a Sigma zoom lens. The UK range is here:

Depending on exact budget check prices on the up to 200mm zoom lenses. Whatever you buy will be the right/wrong choice depending on the situation but only lots of practice will let you work out what you really need.

If you're really tight on budget then ebay is the place to try.
