Themed markets coming to city

City of Wolverhampton Council has again joined forces with its approved market operator, LSD Promotions, to develop the new events, which will take place over the next three months.

The theme on Saturday 25  August (10am to 5pm) is Around the World with traders offering products from across the globe.

On Saturday 29 September (10am to 5pm) treat yourself to a vast array of sweet treats at the Chocolate & Prosecco event.

There will be spooky going-ons in October at the Halloween Market on Saturday 27 October (10am to 5pm).

Visitors can enjoy a variety of decorated stalls, with tricks, frights and surprises guaranteed.

Cabinet Member for City Environment, Councillor Steve Evans, said: "We are continually looking to develop our market offer and these themed markets will definitely add a great deal of colour and variety.

"This is an extension of the fantastic events we are now staging in the city centre, such as the successful Food & Drink Festival and Victorian Christmas Market - both of which were attended by thousands of people.

"The themed markets should create a real buzz at the heart of the city centre and there will be plenty on offer for all the family.

"It is also the ideal opportunity to make a day of it and visit Wolverhampton's attractions, range of independent retailers, or take the weight of your feet and relax in one of the city's cafes, pubs and restaurants."

Organiser Dermot McGillicuddy, LSD Promotions Director, added: "Wolverhampton is a great city that already has so much to offer, it has great accessibility by rail, and public transport, reliable taxi companies all over the city, and great parking facilities.

"Our objective is to make the city a 'go to destination' to attract not only local people but visitors from far and wide - and we believe our special markets, festivals and events will do just that.

"We are very excited and privileged to be playing our part in presenting these new events which will develop and grow over the coming years, and our creative team are already busy brainstorming some very exciting festival themes for 2019."
