^ Watch our Norfolk Show highlight reel!
The Royal Norfolk Show is an annual agricultural event which spans over two days and attendance is a rite of passage for Norfolk dwellers… and beyond! The only thing that let us down over the couple of days was the weather – the first day was torrential from set up at 7am. Luckily, the sensible folk of East Anglia were well prepared armed with wellies and golf umbrellas. Unfortunately someone joked with our marketing lady suggesting wellies were overkill – she showed up in fabric flats and soon became extremely muddy.
You may have noticed the return of the Rimba Tunes/tubes to our stand this year – these are a series of pipes arranged in such a way they are able to echo specific musical notes in the arrangement of a piano. The best Rimba Tubes musician won a hamper. This contraption was devised by the ever-musical Lee Gibling (web manager and pro-beatboxer) and was painted in EACH corporate colours. EACH our PBS’ chosen charity of whom we support all year round and have taken a pledge of support to help fund their NOOK campaign. More info on that can be found here.
To further assist in awareness of the NOOK campaign we brought along some of our newest products – plastic recycled furniture – and one of these benches were also decorated in EACH’s blue and orange colours. A percentage of each sale of these items of furniture will be donated to EACH. These products are available in our Norwich store and will make a debut to our web store shortly so keep your eyes peeled!
We had a wonderful two days despite the weather and would highly recommend the show to anyone who hasn’t visited before.
Thank you to everyone who visited our stand, see you next year!
