Roadshow in Turkey Oct 2013 - Eskisehir

After finishing the roadshow in Istanbul, we moved east into Asia to the university city of Eskisehir, where we presented the roadshow for 16 days at a large shopping centre. The first week saw many school groups visiting each day, and lots of families visiting for evening shopping. The second week was part of the national holiday called Bayram, when schools are closed and Turks take a break and visit friends etc. During the weekdays the two TUDAV presenters were giving continuous presentations to meet the demand from school groups, with additional presenters and TUDAV vets joining at the weekends. Well done the TUDAV students who worked so hard to make this roadshow the success it proved to be. After returning to Istanbul, the roadshow creatures flew back to UK and had a well earned rest until 2014

We adopted the tried and tested format of carpeted presentation area with some creatures suspended above and some on the carpet
