Following the successful establishment of a market in the South West, I was asked if I could do the same in the North West. So over the weekend of October 31st and November 1st 2015 we tried this out at Barton Equestrian Arena, Billsbarrow, near Preston, Lancashire, convenient for the M6 and M55 motorways. See North West Market.
Sadly, this was a whole lot quieter than we would have liked – those that did come spent a lot of money, so some traders had a good market, but I was disappointed at how few folk came to see what was available, especially given the population within an hour’s drive.
So the jury is out on whether I bother to stage this again.
