Publicity Guidance

There are lots of ways to publicise your group. Here are some of the techniques we know work.

Outreach stall guidance

Stalls at community events mean you can target your outreach depending on the type of event you go to.

Playout Guidance

Parks and green spaces are great locations to give families their first taste of Woodcraft Folk. Why not plan one off or regular park activities to recruit new children and families to your group?

Outreach guidance

Face to face outreach sessions are a great way of promoting your group. Families who have met and had fun with you are far more likely to come back than if they’ve just read a flyer.
