In October 2013 Groupe Geraud entered into a partnership with LSD promotions to win a 5 year tender and run Oxfords Gloucester Green Outdoor Market. They are now in the second year of that contract and things just continue to get better and better. Initially the plan was to rejuvenate the Wednesday retail Market and Thursday Antiques and Collectables Market. They did this by introducing brand new pop up type stalls with yellow and blue branding, which were an instant hit with all of the traders. They are extremely popular and easy to adapt to.
The markets on Wednesday and Thursday had on or about 60 stalls. This was soon increased to capacity of around 90 stalls on both days. Both are currently running at full occupancy with new traders having to go on to waiting lists. Groupe Geraud’s very successful partnership with LSD Promotions has led them to introduce a Saturday Market at Gloucester Green (from 8th November), which has been an instant hit and full from day one.
John Connolly, Groupe Geraud’s Contracts & Business Development Manager, told MTN,
“Our partnership with Dermot McGillicuddy and his team at LSD Promotions has been extremely successful and provided Gloucester Green with a fantastic and vibrant market three days a week.”
