I understand that this event was very poorly attended and none of the traders took any money. What redress do the traders have for an event that was so poorly publicised?

Presumably the satisfaction of not attending again and warning others of the problem.

As pitch fees creep up to and above the £100 mark it is essential to check that organisers 'are doing their bit'.

I have decided not to attend two of my normal large events this year due to increasing cost and lack of sales - market forces will rule eventually.

Smiffy - neither of them were yours by the way!

We could try imposing contractual terms on the organisers but I don't think that will meet with any response at all in the current climate.

Was this EH by any chance? If so, it would seem that they have not changed their marketing policy then. Or was it on a football day?

It was REALLY dead, little trickles of people every now and again, but hardly bustling to get in. so, a good weekend :-)
