As part of the ‘Woolly Weekend’ a ‘Totally Locally’ Arts & Crafts street market will once again bring Sheep Street to life. The Street Market will take place from 10am-4pm on Saturday 25th May, running down the lower half of Sheep Street and through The Bury. There will be a great mix of stalls packed with locally handmade products from soaps to ceramics, and paintings to wood craft, textiles and up-cycled furniture. ‘Calypso Kids’ will be providing entertainment for the children with musical and crafting sessions. And to add some music to the mix we have a fabulous line up of local talented young musicians who will be busking throughout the day. All with the aim of bringing something extra to our town centre at the weekend, providing a platform for small traders and entrepreneurs, and creating a nice buzz in the community.
The town centre will be decorated with yarn bombing . In addition look out for woven hoops some with sheep and some without. Help your children take part in the hoop competition – forms will be in one of the marquees. There will be other activities for the whole family to take part in the marquees so don’t miss them.
