Create Henley Calling All Shops to Get Creative Too

create-festival-large-logoHave you signed up to take part in the Create Henley Festival www.createhenley.co.uk on the 29 and 30 March 2014? A committee of local entrepreneur’s has set up the Create Festival to encourage visitors to come to Henley during a period which otherwise can be very quiet.

Over the weekend the town will be celebrating all things creative with workshops across town for adults and children, activities and exhibitions as well as the Farmers Market and the Love Local Market in the town hall showcasing the handmade wares of local creative people.

In order to add to the appeal for the day and to help turn the town centre into something really special we are challenging the local shops to decorate their shop fronts in a ‘Creative Way’ this could be anything from an amazing window display to putting in a bubble machine, hanging out the bunting or whatever imaginative, creative things you can think of… go mad (in a sensible way!)

With all the activities going on we believe visitors will be attracted to the high-street; we will promote any shop that is taking part on our website, facebook page and twitter account and direct mail campaigns…It is up to you if you want to run promotions for that weekend or add anything special into the mix… just let us know and we’ll promote it for you.

We are aware that driving customers to your shops is of upmost importance to you and we are doing our best to fill the town for the weekend with lots more potential customers for you…please join with us to make your shops look exciting and inviting.

All this for FREE !!!

Please e –mail  p.mcconnell@henleytowncouncil.gov.uk if you are planning on doing something special and maybe add a short description of what you will be doing. One of the team will then be in touch to start promoting your shop and any offers you may have.

Together we can make the weekend an amazing success and help increase footfall to your shops.
