Shop till you drop…..

Last year’s festival had a bumper selection of market stalls and this year promises to be even bigger and better with over 200 traders spread right across the town centre.

You’ll be spoilt for choice on what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner so drop by and sample food and drink from the four corners of the globe in our fantastic markets. 


When you’ve had your fill don’t forget to check out the arts and crafts stalls for some unique gifts or drop in to the Arts Circle exhibition space on Newport Street (near to the Transport Interchange) for some fantastic art created by local artists. 

A full list of traders will be posted on the website nearer to the festival date.  And, don’t forget, to help plan your day you can grab a copy of the festival site map from one of our information points.
