Outdoor stalls will be on the grass between the car park, village pond and the Oliver’s Battery Historic site. Indoor stalls will be in the Hall and entrance foyer
Music from the performances in the hall will be amplified to the outdoor area.
Footfall is guaranteed as hundreds of children perform during the event and their families come to support them. We have each ensemble perform twice during the event to ensure that there is time to visit the stalls between performances.
Our venues have varied over the past years and this year will be the first time we have used this Village Hall.
We have run the annual event for over a decade and several years ago we carried out an extensive evaluation of the event by surveying customers, ensemble parents and stall holders. Satisfaction was high and the overwhelming majority of respondents wanted the event to remain in a similar format.
We also surveyed the first 200 car drivers attending the event as they entered the car park, and found that 168 were associated to our Orchestras and Choirs, others found out about the event from a number of other routes.
Armed with this knowledge we are prioritising the most effective promotions and also promoting more to the extended families of performers as well as parents.
