Channel 4 seeks Market Trader for new series!

Can you Help?

Do you love your job as a market trader?  Have you been doing it for ages and are a fella aged between 50-70?  Then Channel 4 are looking for you!

“I was wondering if you might be able to help me, I am working on a new prime-time series for Channel 4 provisionally entitled ‘Happiness Hunter’ which looks at what it means to be happy in modern day Britain. The series will be presented by broadcaster and comedian Jon Richardson, from Channel 4’s topical quiz show 8 Out of 10 Cats. 

For this series Jon will travel around the country and meet people from all different walks of life to find out what makes them happy. We would love to find a male market trader aged between 50- 70 who has been working on an outdoor market for years and loves their job. We are looking for someone who couldn’t imagine doing any other job and would be happy to tell Jon why they are so passionate about being a market trader, even though the financial reward may not be huge. Ideally we would be looking for someone in the Lancashire or surrounding areas who sells fresh produce but if you have a larger than life character in mind in a different area it would be great to chat to them too. 

We are planning on filming this series in June so it would be great to speak to any interested market traders as soon as possible. If you could pass on their numbers so I could give them a shout or pass on my details to them that would be fantastic.

If you need any more information just let me know.

Many thanks,

Grainne McPhillips
