Artisan Markets to be Held in Stalybridge Civic Hall

Date Released - 21/09/2022

THREE Artisan markets are to be held in Stalybridge in the beautiful setting of the former market hall in the Civic Hall


The first event will be this Saturday (24 September 2022) 10am to 4pm with the following events being on 29 October and 26 November respectively (the last Saturday of the month).


Tameside Council is pleased that The Market Co – the company that also brings the town’s very successful monthly Street Fest event – is delivering the artisan markets.


The events also support the wider Town of Culture programme and other ongoing work on the Stalybridge Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) to help restore the town’s historic character and encourage people to spend more time in the historic heart of the town.


There will be over 40 artisan stall holders, many of them local to Stalybridge and Tameside, offering a mix of food, drinks, crafts, art, design as well as hot street food. There will also be musical entertainment.


Tameside Council Executive Member for Business and Employment Cllr David Sweeton said: “This event promises to be yet another wonderful  opportunity to bring the historic civic hall to life with a bustling event, increase visitors to the town centre and showcase local arts, heritage and culture.


“Please do come and browse the stalls and, while you’re in the town, you can explore other local shops and cafes, take a walk along the canal or in the beautiful Cheetham Park and enjoy everything Stalybridge has to offer for a great day out.”
