I hope the rest of your programme went well too. How are the audiences during the Romsey festival? Are events like yours well attended by the general public?
Yes, they are, I'm pleased to say!!
The only time there wasn't a good attendance, was when I stood in at short notice and it was advertised the day before, on the Abbey's Facebook page only. I think CG events need a bit more publicity, so people who may be interested get to know about it.
But I had lovely audience last July during The Romsey Festival itself, of maybe about 50-60 people, but it's difficult to say! It was included in the festival's leaflet of all its events and publicised widely.
However, really pleasingly, looking at the rows of people on Tuesday, I would say there was at least double there that day!!! It's very difficult to say, exactly, but the audience was substantial. This time, the publicity was through a Facebook Event and poster I created. The Event and poster got shared several times on Facebook and a very kind lady put posters in local shops too. I also put the poster on the local newspaper website "What's On" page for free.
And the Romsey Advertiser wrote a very nice piece today too!
