We’re very proud to announce that we won the inaugural BEHTA awards in June (Bath Events, Hospitality and Tourism Awards) for ‘Best Contribution to the Community’ placing gold above Bradford on Avon Tourist Board.
BAM started life in October 2012 organised by Catherine Stokes and her husband Jai and although Jai no longer works on the market day-to-day, Catherine still does, now helped by Emma White, Bookings Manager and Carla Stobbs, Marketing & Designer, currently on a freelance basis. We now regularly have over 70 stalls and pride ourselves on choosing high quality traders to join us each month and offer them affordably priced stalls so small businesses can reach affluent customers in Bath.
Read an interview that Catherine gave to Total Guide to Bath about the award here.
But not only did we win big, we have also been featured in three national publications: Waitrose Kitchen as one of 21 things to do this Summer, Craftseller – as a must-see fair in Bath and Embroidery magazine (in a piece by Deena Beverley). Not only that but The Bath Magazine featured two of our regular traders (Revel Interiors and Canvas Butterfly) in a piece about talented Bath makers and where you can find them (with us), plus online listings website, Bath 360 ran a piece about our latest success. Phew, that’s about it for now folks!
