October has arrived and we've been busy behind the scenes, working closely with Winchester Round Table organising Winchester Bonfire and Fireworks 2017!
Planning starting way back in January and now we are in the final approach to the night itself!
It's a huge event for Winchester and we are very proud to support such a wonderful evening that helps our community so much. 20,000 people join in the festivities, starting with entertainment outside the Guildhall, a procession down to River Park, the lighting of the bonfire and the spectacular fireworks themselves.
The last updates of the website were done over the weekend ready for tickets to go on sale today! You can buy them here: www.winchesterbonfire.co.uk.
As well as the digital stuff, you'll also start to see marketing material being circulated in ticket selling vendors around the city as well as a programme dropping through your letterbox imminently.
Over the past few months we've been busy liaising with our generous sponsors, sourcing content and advertisements for the programme and other marketing material, and creating all the collateral to be distributed far and wide.
And it's already started to work - Ticket sales have begun to fly in already so this year is set to go off with a bang!
We've also been actively recruiting volunteers to help on the night to ensure everything runs smoothly - If this is something you would be interested in then get in touch, we're always looking for helpers!
Today I've spent the day in London, and you often find me in Cardiff, but by the end of this week I will be working from Scotland for the very first time! Very exciting.
Busy busy and all go as usual in Sprechen HQ!
