10,000 visitors attracted to the British Family Fayre 2015

20150919_095649This is just a quick post to thank those that supported the new format British Family Fayre for a 3rd successful year. This time we attracted over 10,000 visitors for, what became 2 glorious days of celebrating British manufacturing.

I will admit that we were very nervous of the new format.  Moving it from our home town of Westerham to Chatham Dockyard and spreading it over 2 days instead of one were big risks. In reality, it was going to me a make or break event for us and I am very pleased to announce that, with the help of Lincoln West, we pulled it off yet again.

Getting businesses to buy into the event is always the hardest part. Convincing businesses that it is worth their time trekking down (or up) to the wilds of Kent is no mean feat. Even with each year being more successful than the last, it is a real struggle and sometimes it makes us feel like throwing in the towel. It feels like if we did it in London we would get far more support from business but we know that we would get nowhere near the number of visitors. However, once we have spent the day celebrating and spreading the ‘buy British’ message to thousands of happy families it all seems worth while.

So, what about next year? We have not spoken to our events company about this yet but we will go out on a limb and say that, yes, there will be a forth year. We will see you in 2016!

NOTE: We are just producing a video blog of the event and compiling more photos. We will post them shortly.
