With the ongoing issues associated with coronavirus I would advise you to check with organizers, where possible, to confirm that events are going ahead. I try to include contact details whenever possible so do check if you can to avoid a wasted journey.
Welcome to the new-look Interesting Events website. Firstly, let me thank everyone who has been using the site since I first launched it in 2008. It really doesn’t seem that long ago! The site has evolved a few times over the years but this latest update is a complete re-incarnation. I hope that my loyal followers will agree that this new site makes finding what you are interested in easier than ever. The new site will automatically delete all completed events so you will always see the current events listed on the first page.
I really hope that you take a good look at the site and enjoy the experience of using it. The site is designed to be tablet and mobile phone friendly, giving you a much better experience when on the move. There is an excellent filter system built-in. Just click on Calendar and then select which category you want to search. You can choose to search for more than one category at a time, for example Jumble Sales and Book Sales. If you click on the cross on the green Categories button you return to a listing of all events. You can also filter your search results by clicking on the Tags button where you can select by county. So if you want to search for Car Boot Sales in Surrey choose Car Boot Sale from the Categories button and then Surrey from the Tags button. Again you can revert to a full results list by clicking on the crosses on the green buttons.
There is also a Search facility so if you are looking for a particular event you can use this option to search the whole site.
Click on the event heading and then Read More to see full details including contact information, including phone numbers, email and website links, and a map of the venue.
You now have the option to add your own listings to the site. Simply click on the button above and enter the details of your event. Once submitted it will be reviewed and then posted to the site. If your event is a regular event or repeated throughout the year please contact me and I will arrange for it to be repeated on the relevant dates. Hopefully, this will encourage far more event organisers to use the site and expand the number of events listed, which I believe will be of benefit to all.
I appreciate that people in general do like change but this new site will bring Interesting Events bang up to date, allow it to continue to prosper and provide the best and most up to date information for the benefit of everyone.
Thank you for your support over the years,
