The summer break, more festivals and another bank holiday – say hello (and give a sweaty high-five) to August!

We love August – it’s the height of summer and there’s so much on. We’ve been very lucky with the sunshine these past few weeks, lets hope it continues…

Do you pay attention to National Days? There are plenty of sources online to find out which National Days are when. Do be aware that a lot of National Days move slightly each year so if something is on the first of the month this year; it may not necessarily be on the same date next year. Also be aware that lots of National Days are American, so may not be suitable.

Round-up of August 2018:

  • The season is Summer
  • There are 31 days in August
  • Lots more music festivals coming up
  • Family Fun Month
  • World Honey Bee Day is the 18th – check our social media for more info 🐝🍯
  • Summer bank holiday is Monday 27th

What is a National Day?

When first started, it was a designated date for celebrations for a particular nation or country. Nowadays you may already be aware that there are a lot of National Days out there, some serious with a lot of history behind them, and some more light-hearted and fun.

What’s the point of National Days?

Selecting a handful of National Days to use each month can be really beneficial to your business, which is why at Market Avenue Ltd, we use them. Whether as a base to write a blog, as extra content across social media platforms or to promote services, offers or events, make sure you know the big ones on the calendar and pick some specific ones that tie in with the type of business you have.

At the start of August, Poppies: Weeping Window will arrive locally in Stoke-on-Trent at Middleport Pottery, which we’re very excited about! Do you have tickets? We’d love to hear what you get up to this August and which National Days you’re most excited about. Have fun and don’t forget to wear sunscreen! 😎
