A chance to see what our local artists do and to purchase an original gift.
Funded by the government’s national initiative, Coastal Communities, which aims to boost Britain’s coastal towns, this is an exciting new project to bring vibrant artisan markets to the old harbour with the first of six markets scheduled for Saturday 28th July and the following five Saturdays till 1st September, running from 10am to 3pm on the harbourside.
The Coastal Communities team welcome quality arts, crafts, vintage, upcycling, start-ups and food producers to join them in the venture – please email the Harbour Market & Concessions Development Co-ordinator for a booking form: [email protected] . Stall spaces cost £25, are 3m x 3m, and are housed in our colourful marquees – we have five spaces left for the first market. If you wish to book a stall for all six markets, we are offering 6 for the price of 5. Face painters, hair braiders and other entertainment would add to the vibrancy of the markets.
Follow our Maritime Mile Heritage Trail from the town and look out for the boards which give interesting facts about the history of the area as you stroll along the seafront to the harbour. Along the way or whilst at the harbour, relax and take some time out to enjoy homemade cakes and scones, a beer and good food.
