This last year was my first, and what a year it was. I sure learnt and lived a lot, there isn't one thing I'd change.
Take a scroll down memory lane with me below.
April 22nd, August 19th and October 14th
One of my favourite events to run as the balance of stress and enjoyment is perfect and routine. I held two of my standard smaller markets here this year with one larger fair in October. This was one of my biggest events yet and the most worthwhile.
SALLE MOOR HALL FARM SEASONAL MARKETS
October 29th and December 17th
These were some great and for me experimental events. Each of these markets was seasonally themed (Halloween/Christmas), of which I'd never done themed events before. All in all I'd say they went amazingly, the Christmas market here was probably the busiest event I've ever held!
REEPHAM FARMER'S MARKET
March 9th Onwards
The beginning of stability, this was my first ever regular market which had a stable schedule, opposed to a day here and there at The Forum. This market was definitely a great stepping stone into this world and I can't wait to see where it goes this year.
WORSTEAD FESTIVAL: COOKERY THEATRE
This was the biggest learning curve I faced this year. I ran the cookery theatre tent at Worstead Festival filling the tent and the stage and managing them all on the day.
EVES HILL FARM
November 19th and 26th
These were some more themed seasonal markets, although I had more time to prepare myself after learning from Salle Moor Hall Farm. We held two great Christmas Markets here, and they went quite well all in all.
Hopefully we will be holding a series of four of these in the new year.
