Supported by the Domestic Event Fund, ‘The Dog’s Nollick’ festival which took place over three weekends last Christmas included live music, wood-fire pizza, festive feels, and a range of artisan markets.
Mike Wade, Co-owner of The Black Dog Pizza Oven whom organised The Dog's Nollick festival, said the event had a really positive effect on local businesses. He also commented:
"We're extremely thankful for the support of the Domestic Event Fund in helping us to host a successful series of Christmas pop-up events last year. We estimated that a minimum of 1,200 attendees visited us in Peel over the three weekends; contributing a potential local spend of over £16,000. Feedback received from local businesses with the area was also positive as some witnesses a noticeable increase in trade as a result"
