Luckily, we don't allow polar bears into the King's Manor. So that's one thing less to worry about.

It's quite a broad question, really. York's St Nick's Fair covers much of the city.

We'll be at Barley Hall (our third year) and King's Manor (giving the new show a try).

My parents have just got back from a this fledgeling event and big thank you to Jayne Milner and her staff and collegues. My parents had a wonderful weekend at the first (hopefully many more to come) Medieval merchants Christmas fayre at the Kings Manor York. Venue was superb and all were treated like VIPS'S. This is the benchmark for organising events.
I will certainly attend any future events organised by Jayne.

I have just returned from the King's Manor event in York and would like to say a huge and very public thank you to Jayne, Tony and Elaine (and their superb crew) for one of the best events I have ever attended.

I can only speak for myself (and wouldn't dream of speaking for any other trader) but I was thoroughly impressed with every aspect of the event; great company, lots of laughs and plenty of business. The organisation for excellent, the mops turned up as promised (despite the freezing cold weather) and spent with enthusiasm, the venue was WARM and I was so well looked after by the crew that I wanted to take them all home with me afterwards!

Congratulations on a first class event, guys. May I book the same spot for next year, please?

Ray

(PS - I know it looked festive, Jayne, but can we please have just a little less snow next time. LOL!)

We had a stand at both the Barley Hall fair and the new King's Manor fair. Mike was at the King's Manor venue for the weekend and wants to echo what the other traders have said. The organisers made the entire weekend extremely pleasant and went well past the usual efforts to make sure all the traders had everything they required. We'll be booking this fair again next year, but will need a double-sized stand!

A huge THANK YOU to all the wonderful and supportive traders who had the faith in us for our first ever event. We really tried our best to make everyone happy, we are glad that the systems we put in place to aid the traiders on their stalls have worked for them, everyone of you made a huge effort to decorate your stalls in keeping with the Christmas theme for the St Nicks, we will be hopeing that the pictures we took 'turn out ok for posting'???? as I(jayne) got camera shake on my digital camera ! don't know how that happened - and didn't know it could do that ! lol lol

Congratulations to Sister Beth and her stall, (which looked fab) on winning our first 'BEST DRESSED' Stall competition and Norbury on coming in at a very close second....The Costumed Leafletters did a sterling job at getting them in through the door, despite being blue and looking like snowmen and after all the trouble we went to for the festive snow, it got a bit out of hand before the snow ploughs turned out though ?, it looked very nice, but I think I prefer the view of it from the Huntington Room Window, where the central heating was on full blast and very toasty.

But getting back to the Apis Events itself, we should be lauching our Brand New website in the new year and if all goes to plan we will be starting to promote our forthcoming Events. In the mean time, any and all comments are more than welcome, so if you need to ask us anything please feel free to do so.

So a big thanks to every one who went out of their way to be helpful and extremely supportive for this our maiden event, and lets just see what the future brings

Kind Regards

Jayne Milner, Elaine Mein and Tony Perkins

We would like to give a great big thank you to Trouvere. They have been mentioned in dispatches. They seemed to be playing all the time, over the weekend and it really added to the atmosphere of the event.
Thank you.
