Shop in a Tent - Alsager Music Festival 2016
We've had great fun at the recent Alsager Music Festival in July.
We had a large marquee, which we put up in the pouring rain ! However once up we were dry inside and filled it with lots of stock from the shop, and extra items that our artists had supplied especialy for the day.
Luckily the weather changed about noon and it was dry for the rest of the day. The crowds came and the music played. Many of our artists turned up to support us and to chat to the customers (and each other).
We also had a large hand crafting activities table, where we ran Kids Workshops, making badges, paper bag stars, and weaving God's Eyes. This gave the tent a really good atmosphere as we were really busy all day. In fact we had difficulty shutting up at 8pm!
It was nice to recreate the shop at 100 Crewe Road in its entirety with the Artists work, the workshops, and the busy communal atmosphere that everyone loves.
We also gave away hundreds of our new Two Doors Studio badges, as well as selling lots of our Artists work. So a great day all round.
We are looking forward to next year.
