Shipston-on-Stour Street Markets
We're delighted to announce that Shipston on Stour will be playing host to not just one, but two vibrant and bustling markets this year.
Love will soon be in the air in Kenilworth as a new market selling homemade romantic gifts and treats is coming to the town ahead of Valentine's Day.
Talisman Shopping Centre will host its first ever Valentine's Market on Saturday February 10th from 10am to 4pm, with up to 35 traders set to sell a wide range of products ahead of the big day.
Market stalls will be selling a mix of scented items such as perfumes, candles and soaps, homemade cards perfect for a loved one, and culinary treats for a date night in such as artisan cheese, homemade cookies, cakes and other confections.
The market will be operated by CJ's Events Warwickshire, the firm behind the successful Christmas and Spring Markets held in Talisman, as well as the town's weekly market and its Food Festival in summer.
Jamie Walker, Company Director of CJ's Events Warwickshire, wanted to host a new market in Talisman after consistently positive feedback from traders about previous markets in the shopping centre.
He said: "Our traders have enjoyed great success with our many markets in Talisman, and we're confident the new Valentine's Market will be no different.
"Gifts for a loved one on Valentine's Day can sometimes be hard to source, so we've put everything in one place to make it as easy as possible to buy the ideal present.
"Our traders are all independent small businesses, so knowing that they can sell at a market like this and get reliably strong customer footfall is really important.
"It was a straight-forward process to get the market in the diary, and traders were delighted that they are getting another chance to sell their products in Talisman this year.
"We're looking forward to hosting the market and we hope we can help Kenilworth residents find that perfect gift for Valentine's Day."
Hugo Hawkings, chief executive of Discovery Properties – the developers of Talisman Shopping Centre – added: "CJ's Events Warwickshire hosting another market in Talisman is a real vote of confidence in its location and its ability to draw in customers.
"Kenilworth has traditionally turned out in force for our seasonal markets, and it'd be great to see that trend repeated on Saturday February 10th."
