Makers are invited to apply to take part in the market event showcasing locally made, environmentally friendly and sustainable products. The market will take place on Saturday 16th September 2023.
The indoor market will be located in the Hewitt Lecture Rooms situated on Bannister Street a short walk from the main shopping area on Clifton Street. Each participating maker will have a stall area to display and sell their work. Makers will need to bring their own table or display equipment but all chairs will be provided. We are keeping stall prices low but there is an expectation that makers will use their social media and local networks to help publicise the event.
|Table – 1.2m/4ft||£27|
|Table – 1.8m/6ft||£35|
|Table – 2.4m/8ft||£45|
The stall area must include any tables, display stands, racks etc that you wish to use. It is only fair that makers pay for the amount of space they use.
We would encourage all makers to bring their own rechargeable batteries/power if needed. A bookable power socket is available for an additional £5.00.
If you’re not sure if this is for you, have a look at the list below for some of the environment-friendly approaches that makers might use:
As this is a market to promote sustainability we are keen to hear from makers within a 50 mile radius of Lytham St Annes. This is a market to promote products made by the makers who apply.
Please note there is no WiFi at the venue but it is a short walk to cash points in the town centre.
Complete the online form as soon as possible, along with a relevant photograph of your work. If you are unable to complete a Google form, please email for a word version of the application. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be considered on a first-come-first-served basis so if you are interested in this opportunity, please apply early. We will be looking for a good quality range of handmade products.
In 2022 Fylde Borough Council’s arts development service developed ‘Green Loop’ as an art and environment project inspired by the coast. The project provided opportunities for local people to work alongside environmental artist Nerissa Cargill Thompson in a workshop programme to research, design, create, promote and retail a limited-edition, sustainable & ethically produced range of wearable or home accessories made from recycled plastic and waste found in the Ribble Estuary.
Two Green Loop Eco Makers Markets were organised as part of the project. Developed with an environmental ethos, the makers market brand produced a set of green principles for artists working towards environmental sustainability to showcase and retail their work. Building on this success Fylde Council and Hopeful and Glorious are organising this makers market at the Hewitt Lecture Rooms, showcasing sustainable, green and eco-creative products.
