Enterprise agency Menta is pressing ahead with its sixth Trade Fair and Food and Drink Expo next week, despite having to relocate the event under canvass.

The exhibition on Wednesday, September 11, will be be held in a marquee on the lawns of Ickworth House, near Bury St Edmunds, due to the closure of the venue’s West Wing, where it was to have taken place, following the discovery of a problem with the roof.

More than 90 exhibitors will be taking part, making it Menta’s biggest trade fair to date, with the event running from 1pm to 7pm.

Menta chief executive Alex Till said: “There will be plenty of space for our exhibitors in the luxurious marquee. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet a vast array of businesses who will be showcasing their services and products.”

And he added: “As far as they are concerned, it will be business as usual and for the exhibitors Menta can continue to promote the small businesses it supports.”

Entry to the event and car parking is free of charge. To book, visit www.menta.org.uk or call 01284 760206.
