Cedric Ford Pavilion
Our second visit to Newark for 2013
85 stands!The Newark Autumn show! My goodness, where does the year go? This is always the first real 'Seasonal Shopping' show for BSSK Mind, Body & Spirit visitors!
Some really organised people start their seasonal gift shopping with the Elsecar event in August, but for the majority, our second Newark show, is the real start of the run up to it. Those of you who think about it when the 1st of December arrives may still be horrified by such a thought!
Newark is always busy and buzzy - the pavilion is cosy with its thick carpet and lower ceiling than many venues, and there are always so many exhibitors wanting to attend it, it feels stuffed to the seams with wonderful stands. The mix of therapies, readers and retail therapy is preserved and the overall effect is quite magical.
The staff of the Cedric Ford Pavilion are in charge of the catering in the adjoining marquee, which is attached by a tunnel to the far left corner of the exhibition hall. This meand more room for stands, but just as importantly, more room for people to sit down with food or drink. The usual fayre on offer includes two or three hot meal choices, together with sandwiches, cake and snacks. On Sunday's, there is often a 'mini-carvery' lunch which is very popular.
The only downside for us is that the Pavilion has not fitted a lift to the upstairs floor, so there is no disabled access to the talks and workshops. We hope this will be something they address in the very near future, but for now, we wish to make that clear to avoid any disappointment.
The show has all the usual BSSK attractions - Zone of Tranquillity, a relaxing space to sit and reflect, the free Children's Angel Feather Hunt with a prize for every child, and the free prize draw for every paying adult. This is drawn at 4pm on the Sunday of the show - don't worry if you are not on site, we ring and notify the winner and winners are listed on the website after the show.
Hope you can join us again at the autumn Newark show!
