Shipley Alternative

Shipley Alternative: Kids Take Over

Saturday 3rd March 2018
11am – 2pm

Our popular indy marketplace is being taken over by school age children (with a little help from adults) in March.

It's a great opportunity to clear out any unwanted (but good condition) books and toys, or to make things to sell.

Run a stall for your local group, raise money for a good cause or top up your pocket money. It's up to you.

Anything sold must be complete and in excellent condition.

We do not allow food sales for this market unless you have permission from us first.

To book a stall, please call us on 01274 580186 to chat about your idea or send us an email
