“Very impressed with how it was organised. You’re an amazing bunch.”

“I have attended all the Moira Food Fairs and each time (and indeed any other event organised by Babble), the organisation has been first class.”

“This was one of the best organised events we have attended. The organisers placed emphasis on visitor experience and this was evident in the layout and overall ambience.”

Inns Cross Market

Revitalising a rundown village

In 2014, the landlords of the Inns Cross Complex in Belfast challenged Babble to revitalise this rundown village retail and business area.

The area had a number of vacant lots and little to no football. Only the older residents remembered the history of the area with newer residents disconnected from the place and drawn to the city instead.

Babble worked on creating an Inns Cross Market brand drawing on the history of the area and bringing a more youthful and vibrant tone of voice.

We worked closely with the client to create a strategy and approach.

This involved:

Creating brand-led messaging

Developing new signage and wayfinding to mark the territory

Bringing in quality local and Northern Irish artisans, farmers and makers

Curating a range of local produce on offer from artisan foods, natural skincare and sustainable living products

Sourcing street food and drinks vendors

Making Inns Cross a Saturday morning destination

Social media marketing

Site management

Trader management

With a regular monthly market, we have put Inns Cross back on the map.

500 a month footfall

5-star reviews from visitors

PR coverage in major Belfast and NI papers and magazines

Successfully running for over 8 years
