Message from BCP Council:
Unfortunately, we have been unable to progress as we would have liked with the new pods as we have been working on Covid-19 matters so, as we still have the old stands, we have reduced the price for this season of £10 a day. However, we are hoping to pick the pod project up again in the next few months.
The market is self-run and managed by exhibiting artists/makers as a collective. There is no on-site manager or market employees. It is expected and to a collective benefit that all artists/makers play their part in promoting the market, pitch allocation, A-board/signage placement and collection and implementing social distancing measures.
