Winter Droving: Get Involved


Winter Droving is nearly upon us. Eden Arts have told us that over 2,000 wristbands have been ordered, so we are expecting a good turnout across the three day event.  Attached is the press release from Eden Arts for those who have not seen it. Thank you to all the businesses who have already got involved – it’s great to see all the pompoms sheep loose about the town! Quite a few have been found and it’s causing quite a stir on social media.

The window vinyl images have been ordered and EA will be in touch directly with participating businesses.

They are still looking for businesses who are willing to stock the Droving Masks.  Please get in touch with Nikki or Sally at Eden Arts on 01768 899444 if you want to take part.

Please make sure you are making the most of the marketing opportunity this event offers; if you’re doing a Droving related window then spend me a picture and I can promote it to visitors on social media.
