This past bank holiday weekend, we celebrated the launch of our seventh and latest enterprise, SiGNAL Studio at The Shed.
The Shed opened its doors for a long-awaited soft launch on Saturday 29th May to a fantastic reception. In fact, the opening few hours over-exceeded the expectation for visitor numbers, leading many stalls and food outlets to completely sell out before the evening session - what a great taster of the success to come!
The opening weekend had such a wonderful buzz about it. The sun was shining, local businesses revelled in the opportunity to sell, as so many markets have, understandably, been cancelled over the last year, this was a great chance to get back out there!
With plenty of seating, a landscaped lawn and entertainment on offer, families and friends "shopped until they dropped", enjoying all the culinary delights on offer, and it was lovely to see so many people simply soaking up the atmosphere in the sun!
We're absolutely thrilled to be a part of The Shed with SiGNAL Studio. The Studio is our seventh business venture alongside our portfolio of office space, business and marketing support and, in essence, SiGNAL Studio is a real culmination of everything we do here at SiGNAL.
SiGNAL Studio at The Shed already ticks the box in terms of local community engagement, as The Shed is part of the Whitehill and Bordon Regeneration Project and a welcome addition to the towns' offering.
The Studio is a fixed unit within the main building, and has been filled with unique gifts, crafts and art from local, independent artisan creators. It is our absolute pleasure to showcase such remarkable goods, shining the spotlight on local craftsmanship, with a focus on "green" gifting.
All of the products on show have been locally created, so no miles travelled, and each can be gift wrapped by sustainable stationery from our Studio!
We were pleased to open to the public on Saturday with a great selection of artwork and gifts which proved hugely popular, many pieces of art sold within the first few hours at their ticket price - great news for our exhibitors!
Our Prosecco Tap also proved popular; can shopping get better than supporting local businesses, with an eco-friendly conscience and a glass of bubbles in hand?!
If you've visited The Shed and would love to know more about how to get your goods on display at SiGNAL Studio, please do get in touch. As products sell, we look to replenish our walls and shelves with more bespoke gifting options for the local community.
