Children's Market

Brand New Event for 2017

Penkridge Market present a brand new Children's Market for 2017. This will include:

  • A Nearly New sale where parents can sell unwanted toys, clothes and equipment
  • A wide variety of market stalls selling all kinds of child focused merchandise
  • Craft stalls selling handmade clothes and toys
  • A child friendly fun fair
  • Petting Farm
  • Food and Drinks
  • We are inviting local childrens groups, clubs, schools and other relevant organisations to exhibit at the event.

The new Children’s Market will be an event entirely dedicated to children, with stall holders selling everything from nearly new children’s clothes to toys and handmade crafts. There will also be plenty of activities to keep the children amused, including a petting farm, fairground rides and children’s crafts.

The event will run from 10am to 3pm, and with free admission for children and only £1 for adults, it’s a fantastic value day out for all the family.

Kate Kingsley from Penkridge Market said:

“We are very excited about the new event and hope that people will come and enjoy themselves. Having two young children myself I felt there was a gap in the market for an event that not only catered for the needs of parents but also children themselves. So we thought why not offer something slightly different. People will be able to buy nearly new children’s clothes, toys and equipment, as well as new products such as handmade crafts. There will also be entertainment and local children’s clubs, groups and organisations so that families can find out more information about the services available in the local area.”

Kate continued:

“If the event proves to be popular then we are hoping to build on its success and make it into an annual event, or even a twice-yearly market if people want it.”

Over 60 stall holders will be selling a variety of goods from clothes, toys and books to unique personalised hand-print jewellery and 3D castings. The majority of stalls will be undercover in the indoor market, making it a great day out whatever the weather.

There will also be plenty to keep the children entertained, with a bouncy castle, donkey rides and petting farm as well as delicious treats such as ice-creams, sweets and popcorn. Children will have the chance to meet a variety of animals including owls, hawks and rabbits, as well as bottle feed some lambs. There will also be a free craft area, where children can have a go at colouring in, paper plate craft and making their own puppets to use in the Market’s very own puppet theatre.

And if all of those activities make you hungry, there will be plenty of refreshments available, from jacket potatoes, burgers and ice-cream to delicious Sunday lunches in The Old Deanery Farm Cafe.
