The market will run on Saturday, March 19, from 10am to 3pm, in the main hall at the Melton campus.

It’s completely free to take part and you don’t have to be an established trader or performer either.

Melton’s first-ever Teenage Market was held in the Market Place in September. It was organised by the Melton Business Improvement District (BID) in partnership with Melton Council as a way of giving young entrepreneurs and performers a prominent stage to show off their creative talents and to help get their businesses off the ground.

Last year’s event featured bands, solo singers and musical groups as a variety of stalls selling home-made products such as gifts, jewellery, cards, toiletries and clothing.
