In return for exhibiting in ‘The Art Trail’ all exhibitors have a duty to promote the event by way of distributing posters, flyers and banners.
Tips on Where to Put Your Posters and Flyers
You will be given approx. 500 flyers and 20 posters.
Bundles can be left in places that attract tourists or that already have a tourist information flyer point. For example; Tourist Information Centres; bus stations; Railway stations; Hotels and B and B’s; Craft shops; Art galleries; Cafes, Pubs and restaurants.
They could be handed out to interested friends and families; leaflets in school bags; handed out at local events, such as craft fairs, car boots, garden shows etc.
Posters can be displayed on public noticeboards, shop windows, in your own front window or even inside your car
Please note that promotional packs will be handed out to all registered exhibitors in May.

Each exhibitor should select 3 distribution areas in order of preference when completing their application form.
One or possibly two areas, (dependent upon size), will then be allocated to each exhibitor. The list is concentrated on north Lancashire and south Cumbria. It is not exhaustive. Please include your own selections also.

Many exhibitors have contacts in South Lancashire, Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire and the North East. Please consider distributing there if you are in those regions as a considerable number of visitors come from these locations.
