An open invitation to Mary Portas & Grant Shapps MP from MR BIG!

Dear Mary & Grant

Our Pop Up Market’s stuffed with goodness, but you’d be the cherries on our delicious home baked cake.

We’ve got the vintage poster:

The Poster! Download, Print & Display Yours Today!

We’ve got 30 indie stalls selling slogan tees, hardy plants, wood carvings and cottage garden flowers with zero carbon miles. Meet knitters, sewers, bakers, makers, lady gun slingers, artists and hair braiders. Shop socks, crocks, crafts and crepes. Taste lip-licking ice-cream, sausages, goat’s cheese and Lincoln red beef – all deliciously local and thrilled to do #popgoesrasen

We’ve got BBC Lincolnshire broadcasting their Drive Time Show live from 4-7pm, as part of their Diamond Jubilee Celebrations.

William Wright and the BBC Radio Lincolnshire team will be broadcasting live at the market

We’ve got Lincolnshire’s first Instagram Instameet, because Market Rasen can be cool.

Lincolnshire's First Instameet #PopGoesRasen

We’ve got this empty shop waiting to be turned into a giant fish tank with 269 children’s fishes & wishes

Inside the former Square Bar - soon, 269 children's fishes & wishes will turn this empty space into a giant aquarium!

But we don’t have Mary and we don’t have Grant – or do we?

MR BIG personally invites you both to come along and see how the Portas Pilot scheme has inspired Market Rasen to create all this, from a standing start, in just four weeks.

Would love to see you there.

The MR BIG team.
