We were at The Mall Cribbs Causeway Bristol from last Thursday until Sunday. We had a small area but we seem to have done a lot better than some other traders who were at the show. We bought a display stand and our competition was "Win a Spring Clean" and we were located in the Mall itself on the first floor – the Healthy Living and Kitchen Zone . Our stand could be seen as you walked towards the Marks and Spencer stand. We gave out leaflets, got people to enter our competition and we also sold 'Eco Cleaning Kits' – the friendly oven cleaning kit.
The food demonstrations were carried out in the marquee which is located outside W H Smith and there is special demonstration area which people had to pay £7.00 to go into. By all accounts the live cookey demonstrations were extremely good with Paul Rankin , Mary Berry , Aldo Zilli and Lesley Waters all attracting a fair audience. Though by all accounts there could have been larger audiences to each of the shows. I think as it was the first one of these shows at 'The Mall' people weren't aware of what was on offer. Hopefully next year more people will tune into the event.
In all we had 102 entries to our competition and we will be putting the names of the winners on here soon.Google+
