18 Mar Pop Up a Pitch at Wellington Market
Opportunities for entrepreneurs and young people are popping up by the day in the run up to this years Love Your Local Market and we were delighted to hear about the latest scheme to hit Wellington.
A new PopUp market opening in May for Love Your Local Market fortnight is coming to Wellington town centre. The ‘PopUpPitch’ will be a branded area attached to the Market Hall and will have quality signage, catering & seating, with an avenue of 20 stands for local businesses and start-ups, showcasing local artists, makers, musicians, bakers, cooks, distillers, brewers, collectors & entrepreneurs from all sorts of businesses.
The launch takes place on Tuesday 17th May and from then on the PopUp Pitch will run weekly every Friday & Saturday to Christmas and also include a special PopUpPitch & StreetFoodFest for the Christmas Lights Switch On.
The day rate will be subsidised, with powerful publicity and PR underpinning the work of a professional merchandiser who is part of the team. Traders will be provided with branded shirts & shopper bags, feature in online promotions and be able to take part in organised ‘Pitches’ to commercial buyers, leading local and national businesses.
Space is limited and the team will need to ensure a full spread of choice so at this stage can only take a maximum of two traders from each discipline. If you are interested in taking part in the PopUpPitch and would like to reserve a stand, please get in touch with Fay Easton,who will send you the booking details.
An event to launch the scheme is being held on March 24th and you can book a ticket through Eventbrite: Start Up in a Pop-Up.
