A free lantern making workshop is the latest attraction as part of a new event to bring a new shopping experience to Walsall.
A total of 55 stalls have now been booked for the event in and around The Bridge & Park Street in Walsall on Thursday October 25 starting at 5pm.
CRAFTS AND COOKING
The event aims to bring together some of the best independent traders and street food caterers from across the region.
Carl Mitchell, of Bonce Hair Salons who is also a member of the Walsall Town Team said: “It’s going amazingly well.
“Our aim is to create a real buzz and put on something very different and we’ve joined forces with Walsall Council over this project very well.
“So far, there’s been more than 55 traders who have been selected.
An appeal has been made for more walk about street entertainers and musicians to help provide the entertainment and showcase local talent.
Councillor Adrian Andrew, portfolio holder for Walsall Council said: “We’re looking to create a vibrant event that will really capture the imagination of shoppers including some who may not have been to Walsall for some time.
“It’s a chance to shop after work, bring the family in and enjoy some entertainment while doing it.
“So far, there’s a range of products usually unavailable on the traditional High Street for people to purchase from night market stalls range from things like a local artisan bakery, halloumi cheese wraps, handmade cup cakes and a stall dedicated to selling the Spanish delicacy of churros
“There’ll also be a stall selling roast lamb as well as handmade chutney as well as stalls for vintage clothes, bead jewellery and vintage clothing.
“It is great to be working so constructively with businesses and supporting the ideas they are coming up with.”
From 5pm to 7pm children are invited to come and take part in a free lantern making workshop and then from 7:30pm a free cocktail master class will take place where you can try your hand at mixing various cocktails.
