Barnsley Markets showcased at Cannon Hall Festival – 06/09/2018

Catherine Spooner at the Cannon Hall Festival

Over the bank holiday weekend, we joined Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and Counter Context at the Cannon Hall Food and Drink Festival to promote Barnsley Markets. During the event, Catherine Spooner and the team spread the word about the new Food Hall which opens to the public on Friday 31 August, with a grand opening ceremony the following day. They also provided information to market traders enquiring about taking stalls.

The stall proved popular among visitors at the festival, who made enquiries about The Glass Works project and children were able to enter a competition to design the Market Mascot. There was also an opportunity to win gift vouchers and a guided ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour to see the progress of the new Market Hall, which will be opening in November.

“The Cannon Hall Festival was the perfect opportunity to celebrate the opening of the new Food Hall and to help make other market traders aware of the excellent new stalls available in the iconic Barnsley Markets.”
