Quite why a creative agency like Nixon would choose to exhibit our wares amidst the flowers, farming implements, prize-winning cattle, rabbits, poultry and other assorted livestock at an agricultural show could be a mystery.

However for us, the Royal Cornwall Show is a highlight of our calendar, and given that we’ve now been exhibiting there for over a decade, if we chose not to do so many people might well wonder what fate had befallen us.

This year’s show, held over three blustery (but thankfully rain-free) days last week, was a sell-out with thousands of people attending each day. We took the opportunity to bring their attention to some recent projects of note, namely the launch of the Tresco Island website and the latest edition of ‘Tresco Times’, alongside our branding project which heralded the transformation of The Godolphin Arms in Marazion.

Happily, we were joined by a crowd of clients, suppliers, family and friends, providing the perfect excuse to celebrate life in Cornwall by popping open some Camel Valley Brut.

This delicious sparkling wine is created at the Lindo family’s vineyard just up the road from the showground, and has won numerous awards including the International Wine Challenge. It’s a prime example of why Cornwall is such a special place; a fact that was reaffirmed wherever you looked in the showground, but not least with the quality and breadth of the delicious produce in the Food and Drink tent.

So we're already planning our return to the 2015 show next year. Make sure you let us know if you’d like to join us - after all, any excuse to celebrate!
