Busy start to 2015 at the Cheese and Grain with even more to come

The last few months have been very busy behind the scenes at the Cheese & Grain.

A new ticketing system has been introduced which is a modern innovative system, cloud based and offers much more flexibility and scope with ticket sales and marketing. Tracey Rawlins, Marketing Manager is pleased with the improvements. She said, “The new system allows us to offer an excellent service both for a customers who come to our own shows but also allows us to move forward as a box office for other venues, festivals and events. We are looking to broaden our client base over the forthcoming year.”

Along with the Ticketing system comes a new look website for the Cheese and Grain designed by local web designer Wilf Swann.

“We are delighted with the new look, its clean, simple and easy to use,” explains Tracey,  “A major plus point for our customers is the cost to purchase tickets online has practically halved! We have also noticed a huge surge in site visits and sales online, its definitely a good time to consider advertising on our website if you are a local business.”

Along with the technological advancements the Cheese and Grain are busy organising their own events.

Coming up is the Vintage Weekend on the 18th and 19th April and in May there is the Gardening Fair on 24th May which will feature plants, garden tools, ornaments and other paraphernalia as well as workshops. In the summer there is a plan for a Cider Festival on the 15th August and next year will see the return of the incredibly successful Tattoo Convention. Another new event for 2016 will be the Frome Beer Festival on 18th and 19th March.
