about BSSK Events
A brief history
BSSK Events originally started life as the fund raising arm of The British School of Spiritual Knowledge in 2001 with just a small one-day Mind, Body and Spirit show in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, the home town of the School's founders.
From these very humble beginnings, it has grown and re-invented itself until it is now a self contained organisation under the loving care of its proprietor, Angie Jury (formerly Simmons). BSSK Events promotes around twelve major Mind, Body and Spirit events each year, together with workshops on a host of related subjects.
It has retained the name, BSSK Events, so it may be readily identified by those visitors that love these particular shows, although this is no longer an abbreviation for The British School of Spiritual Knowledge as it once was.
During 2007, Elixir Events was incorporated under the BSSK Events umbrella, and its two most popular shows added to the calendar, meaning that in 2007, fourteen shows were offered together with the individual workshop days too.
In 2008, Chatsworth Fairs was also incorporated, meaning the popular Barnsley Metrodome show became a BSSK event too for a short while. Despite considerable investment of both time and money, it refused to become as successful as other shows, and the Metrodome is such a large space, the dwindling exhibitor numbers were making it feel empty and making it difficult to retain the atmosphere.
Reluctantly, the decision was taken to close this show and concentrate on the much more popular Elsecar Heritage Centre event, which is only a few miles away. The last Metrodome event for BSSK was the May 2010 show, so Barnsley people will now be mailed with details of Elsecar twice a year instead.
Angie Jury is the proprietor and event organiser of BSSK Events. She comes from an administrative and marketing background, careers she followed for many years to keep the wolf from the door, but without enjoyment, finding them so at odds with her inner self.
Now however, she sees the spiritual reasoning for her years in the 'salt mines' and uses her past experience for something she truly believes in, and to make a BSSK event something just that little bit different for visitors and exhibitors alike.
To this end, ideas are always being added to make the shows "family friendly" and to provide knowledge, information and new experiences to the visitors to the shows. All talks and demonstrations are offered free of charge at a BSSK event.
