You may or may not be aware we have again been invited to exhibit at the Market Hall Fringe this summer. We had great success last year, selling over £1200 worth of work and contributed £300 to the Macmillan Cancer Support. Also it is a good opportunity to promote the group and our work to a wider audience.
This year the dates are Saturday 6th July to Saturday 13th July.
To aid us in organising the event please can you let us know how many boards and/or table space you need (at this point, this need only be an indication and not a definite commitment), also if you can help with any of the setup, close down and/ or covering of shifts through the week.
To cover associated costs this year there will be a charge of £5 per board or table section. Commission will be 20% to Macmillan Cancer Support for all work sold.
There will be lists available from next Tuesday’s meeting to sign up. Alternatively you can email Geoff or myself your requirements/availability to help or if you have any questions. (email address have been added to the group email sent 9th May).
