My temporary events licences came through from the local council yesterday. I'll be selling my cider on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays on seven weekends starting on the 18th July.
I'm allowed up to ten licences in any one location per year, with a maximum of up to twenty one days in total and I intend using them to the full..

This year, I'll also be selling my GOS sausages and burgers. I'm hoping that the two will help sell each other and that cider and sausages will prove to be an irresistible combination.

Best of luck with it I suspect they'll sell well together.

I think you mentioned previously that you weren't allowed to sell fresh cooked food? but I wouldn't underestimate the power of smell….get the bbq going  

cheers,
Toddy

I have between 100 and 200 hundred customers every weekend, they'd be fighting over it and burning my charcoal.

Why will they be burning your charcoal?

None of the pubs or other venues around here, or elsewhere across the country supply free charcoal (but most of them will sell bags of ezi-lite charcoal to the punters).

Best of luck, I'm sure you will do well, just don't over do it. Remember what the nurse said.

We put the marquee up today, it will be up for the next seven weeks and then after that it will be free to a good home.
We've had it for over fifteen years and while it'll do the job this year, its definitely seen better days.
