The event is a platform for some of the brightest young people (aged 13-21) to showcase their creative talents and entrepreneurial spirit for free.

“Performers included Thomas Harnett, May Perks, Melanie Daniels, Mia Brooks, Phil Green, Sky Theatre - American Idiot and Singin’ In The Rain casts, Eva Rose, Ro Jordan, Ela Devlin-Hayes, Isla Jenks, Daniel Williams and some Zumba as well.

“Melton is just one of four towns in the East Midlands to host Teenage Markets, the others being Sleaford, Lincoln and Kettering, so we’re really proud to showcase our town’s fantastic talent.
