BGW Market confirmed for Bridge Gate car park



The Big Green Weekend outdoor market has now been confirmed for the car park at Bridge Gate, next to Ladbrokes in Hebden Bridge, for the weekend of May 23rd, 24th and 25th.

In addition, I'm very pleased to say that we have agreed that the registration and organisation will be provided by Calderdale Markets, who will also be providing the stalls themselves where necessary.

Calderdale Markets manager, John Walker, is delighted with the tie-up, saying "We have always tried to help stimulate local economies whislt promoting sustainability. This event gives us a high profile platform on which to get this message across together with an opportunity to support and participate in a fantastic community event."

The cost will be only £25 per day or £60 for all three days and stalls will be allocated on the basis of the sustainability and relevance of what is being offered, whether there are other stalls selling the same thing, and how far the traders have travel to get to Hebden Bridge.

If you are interested in having a pitch, please email john.walker@calderdale.gov.uk with the following ESSENTIAL information:
  1. Which days you would like.
  2. Your name.
  3. Where you're based.
  4. What you will be offering on your stall.
  5. Your daytime telephone number
Feel free to send anything else you wish to support your application.
