Mela, Pride and Market:
We were delighted by the public response to our 1st event of the summer last Saturday with significant increases in footfall recorded and witnessed across the area. It was a pleasure to see the street and beyond alive with vibrancy and life, providing on the day commercial benefits and visibility via the large turnout on the day.
The event was covered by the Daily Record online & Hamilton Advertiser, Have a read here Hamilton’s Mela Celebration hailed a ‘huge success’ as thousands flock to town centre for fun day – Daily Record.
This week’s events:
This week Hamilton Market returns, and our event has a fashion twist! We will have a DJ from Roc on the bandstand, dancers, a silent disco, outdoor play and free climbing once again courtesy of the Hang On Climbing centre, in place in an effort to support footfall in the New Cross. We will also have a small fun fashion show on the bandstand featuring businesses from the area too! There’s still plenty of space available to participate in the fashion show AND we have a very limited amount of stalls available too. If you are interested, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
