Following the success of last year’s event, Blackburn with Darwen Council has teamed up again with Crafty Vintage for Darwen Live Makers of Market Square. The event will take place on Saturday 25th May, 10am – 4pm in the newly refurbished Darwen Market Square.
The event is set to be a fun, family focused craft and vintage fair with live entertainment throughout.
Award winning organisers, Crafty Vintage, are bringing classic vintage, collectables, retro wares, quirky handmade, fine foods and delectable cuisine together in one event. Come along to enjoy a splendid showcase of talent from the finest creators, collectors and artisans in the area. Live music, entertainers and lots of merriment will ensure that you have a wonderful day.
You will find familiar faces too, as there will be pop up magic shows and craft workshops inside Darwen Market, alongside our Darwen Market traders, who will be ready to offer you a fabulous selection of locally sourced and home made quality products.
Cllr Riley, Executive Member for Regeneration, said,
“It is good to be welcoming the Makers of Market Square event back to Darwen in a very different looking Darwen Market Square. This is exactly the type of event, run by a local business that we want to see taking place in Darwen.
The space is there for the community of Darwen to use; whether that is charities and community groups raising awareness, large scale music events such as Darwen Live, outdoor markets and fairs or simply sitting down to enjoy the space whilst eating lunch.
Crafty Vintage are very experienced in running fantastic events across the North West and I am sure that this event will be no exception.”
Laura Johnson, Owner of Crafty Vintage said,
“We had an overwhelming response to this event; our traders snapped up the slots that we had available in record time! They really enjoyed coming to Darwen last year and we expect that this year’s event will be equally as successful, if not better, for everyone! We are excited about the quality of the traders and the entertainment that we have planned this year. All we need now is to book the sunshine again!”
There is a fantastic line up of live music too including Billy Bibby of Catfish and The Bottlemen fame, vintage vocals and acoustic sets plus a violinist in the Market Hall and Annexe. This will be a spectacular free day out with something for all the family to enjoy.
