2018 is unfolding as an interesting year. One of our first jobs was to source extras for "Mari" a film being shot in Sherborne, Dorset. The film, being released towards the end of the year, features the unfolding relationship of a family based in London and Sherborne and includes the Pack Monday Fair which dates back to 1490. The start of the fair is heralded by Teddy Roes band at midnight and our extras were part of the Teddy Roes band for the film.
Sadly the March Market was cancelled due to the incredible snowfall. But April will see us starting NVQ training with the Market Stewards provided by Festival Lizards. Trained and assessed on site in conjunction with Cirencester college we are hoping to get 50 stewards through their NVQ in Spectator Safety by the end of the summer. If you have stewards that need training, get in touch.
This year we have been tasked with providing a funkier festival covering a wide scope of subjects. So we are currently sourcing authors for the best fest yet in October 2018. With 100 years of the Women's vote and 400 years since the death of Sir Walter Raleigh its an eclectic mix of history, comic books, cookery, sports and autobiogs. Watch this space as authors are confirmed.
