Bursary Winner Sarah Cressall Launches Her Franchise ' The Creation Station' at the National Franchise Exhbition

The perfect franchise for mums is booked to run the first ever Children's Activity Centre at the National Franchise Exhibition at the NEC

To encourage women along to this year’s National Franchise Exhibition at the NEC, leading exhibition organiser Venture Marketing is making the event a family friendly experience. They have booked The Creation Station to run a Children’s Activity Centre on the second day of the exhibition – Saturday, 2nd October.

Parents wanting to find out more about the flexible business opportunities offered by franchising are invited to bring their children along and enjoy a family day out. The Children’s Activity Centre is completely free and can be accessed from The Creation Station stand B170. Parents can enjoy quality and stress free time with their children and experience the joy of creating a mysterious mask, a willow wand or a squishy squashy picture. Places are limited and are on a first come first served basis.

The Creation Station founder and Managing Director Sarah Cressall said: “This is a fantastic way to attract more mums to the National Franchise Exhibition so they can find out more about a wide range of business opportunities. As an Associate Member of the British Franchise Association The Creation Station is committed to supporting women in franchising. We are delighted that Venture Marketing have asked us to run the first ever entertainment event at the exhibition.

“We engage families brilliantly and have extensive experience as entertainment providers at a wide variety of events across the UK. In the last few months we have provided activities at the Devon County Show which attracted more than 100,000 visitors over three days, the Deloittes Family Day and the Toyota Environmental Day.

“We are looking forwarding to welcoming visitors to our stand during both days of the exhibition and to the Children’s Activity Centre on Saturday. We will help make sure that families have an enjoyable and relaxed experience.”

The Creation Station is the UK’s leading arts and crafts-based play experience for children and their parents. Children love The Creation Station because it inspires their imaginations and allows them to have fun with a wide range of art and craft materials. Parents and carers love it because they can enjoy sharing creative experiences with their little ones but without the mess and stress in their own homes. Women, especially mothers, looking for a flexible and rewarding career find. The Creation Station delivers the work life balance they have been searching for.
