Demonstrators who can work on hardstanding

Post by Mark Griffin »

Hi all, I've been asked by a client to put on various events next year at locations that require shelters to work from but are tarmac or concrete. If you have the ability to trade or demonstrate in this manner please let me know.

Yours,

Griff

hi matey, Jayne Milner the Wise Woman here, I have a 13x9 ft free standing tent - what kind of set up do you require, is it trading or demonstration, as I lecture on the History of Medicine and can fill the tent with stuff for the public to look at and stories to listen to......if your interested, give me a call

best wishes for the new year
regards

My trading tent is fine on hard standing, but would need to have weights to hold the guys if there was a strong breeze. Would anyone be able to provide the weights (as at Stockport where the stalls were weighted down)? Otherwise, maybe I should invest in some.

Yes -I firmly believe in the healing power of herbal remedies.
So much so that I insist on taking at least three or more pints of the Sacred Malted Medicine each and every night.

Have you considered plastic 25 litre water carriers?
