Hamilton Markets – Final call for vendors for the year:
We start the 2nd half of the years markets on the 30th September in the Regent Shopping Centre. Following this date, we have a Halloween market, 28th Oct before heading into the festive season dates. There is very limited availability for all remaining dates for 2023, therefore we are requesting that applications for stalls are made now using the link https://forms.gle/3fZ8huFHkgpL3hKY8. Businesses in the ‘BID area’ can access the market at no cost, saving a minimum of £60 per market date in fees.
This year we are providing businesses in the area a new marketing tool via our Hamilton Christmas Festival Guide 2023. We aim to launch this guide on the 1st November online, the purpose of which is to pull together and package all of the town centre activities in one guide including the festive events and markets. If you are planning Christmas events, festive product ranges or have anything Christmas related happening within your business, let us know and we can include your activity in the guide. The deadline for submissions is the 21st October. Email details to email@example.com
