Last weekend, we kicked off our event season with the Royal Cornwall Show. Despite the weather, we had a lot of fun, and it was great to meet so many of you. As we’ve repeatedly said, our favourite part of all the events we attend is meeting the rest of the Hager-vor family, whether you’re new or old.
Thursday ended up being the day with the best weather — the sun was shining, the deals were plentiful, and it seemed like the weekend was going just as we’d hoped. Obviously, we all know what ended up happening. Cornwall did a Cornwall, and the weather changed drastically on the Friday. But we were one of the lucky ones. For those of you who didn’t make it to the show, our stand was fairly sheltered and we were able to persevere through the rain.
Friday was when other stands were packing down across the show, and we don’t really blame them! It was probably the quietest day we’ve seen at the Royal Cornwall in all the years we’ve been attending. But at Hager-vor we’re used to extreme weather conditions! Perhaps the rain helped us with plenty of you coming and buying hoodies! Maybe we should make some Hager-vor rain jackets for next year, given the typical Cornish unpredictability.
All in all, the show was great for us – we got to see a lot of friends, both old and new, and hear your Hager-vor stories. It’s left us excited for the upcoming events we’ll be attending throughout the summer!
The next event in our calendar is Oceanfest in Croyde. A rare chance to find us outside of Cornwall, it’s one of our favourite festivals we attend. You can find us there on all three days of the festival, between June 21-23. We think Oceanfest is the perfect Hager-vor event – live music, lots of sport, and plenty of family fun. And it’s great for those of you who don’t quite venture down to Cornwall!
The final confirmed event for Summer 2019 is Boardmasters. The Cornish festival. Again, you’ll be able to find us there every day from 7-11 August. Boardmasters is very quickly establishing itself on the UK’s festival circuit, and it brings in people from all around the country. Maybe it’s the one time this summer that you’ll find yourself in Cornwall, and if it is, be sure to come and find us!
If you didn’t catch us at the Royal Cornwall Show, we’d love to see you at either of the two festivals. And we’re always happy to see those of you who come through our doors down in St. Ives, too!
Did any of you attend the Royal Cornwall Show? Will you be attending any of the future festivals? Reach out and let us know, and we look forward to seeing you!
