How your venue may look with our superb lighting effects and staging
1. Promote the event by placing show posters (we are hpapy to provide you with some) around your local area on poster boards in the villages/towns nearby. Include on the poster what the event is raising money for, booking information and ticket prices.
2. Advertise the event in the local parish magazine/local newspaper (this is often free). Ask them to write a piece on your organise and what you are raising money for.
3. Contact the EDP regarding the free listing in the "What's On Section"
3. If you have a website or facebook page promote the event on this and ask people to like and share the page if it on facebook.
4. Ask a local shop to sell the tickets for you. They are often a focal point in the village a can promote the event to everyone who enters (you could event get some flyers putting in customers bags).
5. Invest in some A frame boards which you can place near to the venue a couple of weeks before displaying some posters and booking details.
6. Roadside signs put out a couple of weeks act as a really good reminder.
7. Tell your friends and encourage them to come along (word of mouth really does work) - we have found people are more likely to come along if light refreshments are available as this gives a warm atmospher
Remember people often don't book tickets for events months in advance but keep reminding then and they will come. We often find organisation who book us sell the majority of the tickets in the 2 weeks prior to us singing.
