Do you want to take part in the Freeman Street Youth Market?

The Youth Market will take place on Saturday, August 12, at the Freeman Street Market and will offer young people the chance to start their own business ventures, completely free of charge, with help and advice on marketing on hand.

While the event is an opportunity for young people with fledgling businesses, stalls are available for local artists and performers who may wish to show off their talents, and the market are even offering stalls to young people who may just want to show off hobbies.

The Youth Market will start from 9am and run until around 3pm, and there are plans for there to be live music and theatre performances throughout the day, and organisers are also asking any local musicians who wish to take part to get in touch, as there is still plenty of opportunities available to perform.

Each stall that is available will come with free marketing, pop-up banner, A1 poster, Facebook page and all of the footfall you will need as you can trade with all of the customers that visit the market.

Sean McGarel, manager of the Freeman Street Market said: "We have set up the youth market in order to encourage more young people to trade and shop in the market, by given them the opportunity to experience everything we have to offer in Freeman Street Market.

"At the moment we have a number of craft stalls, as well as a face painter and balloon sculptor, but there is still plenty of room available for anyone who wishes to take part.

"We are also trying to encourage local schools to get on board, and if any students have any hobbies or interest that they want to show off, or even a business idea that they want to get off the ground, we would like them to get involved.

"There will also be opportunities for local graffiti artists to do something at the event, as we have a number of 12x8 canvas that we would love them to do some art work on, which we shall be displaying around the market."

Skye-Danniella Tribe is a young stall holder at the market and clown, who has started her own business, Clowning Around, making balloon animals and painting faces, hoping that one day it will help her to raise the funds so that she can go off to clown school.

She said: "I think the market is a terrific opportunity for young people like myself to develop their own business, become more independent and set them up for their future careers.

"I love working at the market, where I regularly have a stall, because it is a great chance for me to do something that I love, which is working with young children, as they are often shopping in the market with their parents.

"It has been a brilliant advert for me, and through working at the market I have been hired out for private functions like birthday parties and it has given me a real start in life.

"I would encourage anyone who is interested to get on board and take part, because it is a great chance to earn yourself a bit of money as well as developing the skills to start your own business."

The Freeman Street Youth Market is open to anyone aged 16 to 30 who wants to take part.
