Over the past few months, we have worked with local artists, Jean Mcewan and Chemaine Cooke from Wur Bradford on various projects that aim to create a sense of ambience and atmosphere in the markets.
The lucky winners of our Christmas Loyalty Card scheme in both Oastler and Kirkgate Market were revealed at the end of December. Traders will be very pleased to know that the top 3 prizes, which were randomly drawn from our raffle box, went to regular shoppers of the markets.
Join Wur Bradford and Cecil Green Arts for a creative Christmas procession with a difference in Oastler and Kirkgate Markets, involving larger than life roving puppets and a sparkly travelling market shrine which you are invited to add your hopes and wishes to for the future!
Shoppers at Oastler Centre and Kirkgate Market could be in for a treat this year by signing up to our Christmas Loyalty Card Scheme, with a £500 Cash Prize, food vouchers and hampers brimming with goodies all up for grabs.
Love your Local Market is a celebration of our market culture, happening over a fortnight in May each year. More than 1,000 markets took part in 2016 celebrating over 7,000 events and market days. The event has gone viral on social media and digital platforms.
Love your Local Market is also about entrepreneurship with the markets industry providing in excess of 10,000 pitches to new traders over the last 4 years. We are proud to announce that Gala Tent are the main sponsors of Love Your Local Market in 2017.
