Deborah Noc, commercial director of “French Events” said, “Having been to Newtownabbey last year, we know everyone is very welcoming. The stall holders were very pleased with the turn out last year and extremely grateful for the kind hospitality shown towards them as we filled every B&B in town. We really enjoyed meeting the residents and visitors of Newtownabbey. Everybody who visited the stalls was excited about what was on offer and we are delighted to be back again”.
