We have a superb market event lined up for you in Rawtenstall Saturday May 27th starting at 10am. For vintage lovers we have a number of vintage traders with us. They will be selling quality vintage furniture, collectibles, curios, clothing and furnishings. We also have some of our Clog Market handmade traders joining us (they didnt want to be left out!) so you will see some of our makers and their handmade products.
Entertainment will be hotly-totsy! we have Geraldine Heyworth from The Sparkle Sisters singing 40s songs, Laura Marie from Rossendale with her beautiful voice and ukulele, Water Brass Band and Peter Sweetmore (Sweetheart) will be MC-ing all day long. You must see the amazing dance company AbouTime who will be performing their “cotton” dance. This performance is to celebrate the Lancashire cotton industry and expresses the cotton mill workers story.
Good streetfood is important to The clog Market so we have Not Your Average Sausage with their delicious hot sausage baguettes, check out their menu! We have Mama Sues and Samosa Hut plus Claire Green Cakes will be providing vintage afternoon tea sandwiches and cake. Tea is from The Market Tea Lady and for this market only we are excited to welcome back Second City Coffee who will have a whole menu of coffees plus homemade lemonade.
You can also have a lovely G&T using Gribbin & Bear’s infused gins, a craft beer or lots of other refreshing soft drinks. Fashion is on the ration and we have a prize for the best dressed trader and customer.
You can meet staff from The Whitaker Museum and find out what’s on there. We are also supporting Rossendale Rubicon the local mental health, self funding, support group, Veterans In Community and Crawshawbooth Scouts (duck race tickets are available!)
Rawtenstall will be alive from the railway station up along Bury road, the town square, Bank st and at Rawtenstall market, so, all in all we’re expecting it to be a fun day for all your family and friends. Visit us, sit and chat, watch, laugh, eat, drink, shop, repeat.
Everyone will be made welcome.
