Magic comes to Market Rasen’s BIG May Market – Sat 4th

Market Rasen’s BIG Magical Market for May is only a couple of days away! So to get you in the magical mood we’re having a Pop Up Cinema experience on the high street, on Friday 3rd May at 4pm, we’ll be screening Tangled FREE for children at 10a Queen Street (previously Indulgence) with a few tuck shop treats to buy – well, it just wouldn’t be the same without popcorn!

Market Rasen gets Magical - Saturday 4th May from 9am

The Magical Market itself will kick off around 9am in the Market Place and Festival Hall – we’ve got some new banners and arrows to direct visitors along to Festival Hall so they really sample all the delights Market Rasen has to offer.

Each of the 35+ stalls on the market place will have a poster promoting Festival Hall too, we’d love any of our lovely high street independents to run special market day offers too (please tell us what they are on our Facebook page so we can share them for you with all our followers on Twitter too) and if you have any flyers or leaflets please pop them along to the Big Corner Shop so we can share there too. As you can see we’re trying super hard to encourage footfall all around town, with new banners for the auction shed, we want to attract visitors to take advantage of Market Rasen’s free parking.

We’re delighted to add FREE face painting for children to the fun filled drop in circus skills workshops on the Market Place, laid on for us by the talented team at Party Workshops once again, so kids can try their hands at juggling, unicycling and lots more. Most exciting of all is thanks to lovely Louise from Market Rasen’s iconic Queen St sweet shop, Garnett’s, we’ll have the first ice cream van of the season. So that means spring is officially launched at Market Rasen’s Magical May Market with delicious Lincolnshire ice cream from Dennett’s available from around 11am – so there’s plenty of time to have a bacon butty in Ffeisty’s Festival Hall Happy Cafe first, then pop back for a Hog Roast lunch!

Last month’s Grand National market was a great success and we’re hoping that the sun will shine on the magical delights we have in store for you in May, including a fancy dress competition open to all shop keepers, stall holders and children!
