Excitement is building as Melton prepares to hold its third Teenage Market in the Market Place on Saturday (September 10) from 10am to 4pm.
The Teenage Market is a growing nationwide initiative to support local young people and transform town centres. The energy, diversity and vibrancy of the young people who take part in Teenage Markets is helping to breathe life back into high streets, town centres and market areas across the country.
Shelagh Core, Melton Mowbray Business Improvement District (BID) manager, said: “Melton’s last two Teenage Markets have been a huge success, with creative market stalls and a full line up of live music and entertainment throughout the day. It’s a great opportunity for young traders and performers aged 13-21 to showcase their creative products and talents for free.
“This Saturday we’re looking forward to welcoming new traders Decoupage, Alright Ducky, Just.bee.u, Loz and Vs Versus. We also have a fantastic musical line up, including SKY Theatre’s Phantom of the Opera, Lightbulb Parade, The Blacklistt and Corrupt Nation thanks to the support of Icon Music.”
Co-creator of The Teenage Market, Joe Barratt, said “The Teenage Market really is the key to identifying a new generation of market traders by making young people an active part of our town centres. We’re delighted Melton is giving young people a free platform to get their businesses off the ground and showcase their creative talents.”
