There’ll be music, markets and merriment at the Brierley Hill Teenage Market on Saturday December 3.
Brierley Hill residents can shop for unique Christmas gifts and refreshments to a lively soundtrack when they are entertained by performers at this year’s final Teenage Market of the season.
Dudley borough’s final Teenage Market for 2016 is taking place at the Moor Centre, in Brierley Hill, from 10am – 4pm. This is the first time that the town has hosted a Teenage Market. The vibrant shopping experience is taking place as part of the town’s Christmas lights switch-on event which is also set to feature children’s rides, live music and stage entertainment, Santa’s grotto and a nativity sheep trail.
The Teenage Market initiative gives young people the chance to develop their business skills by selling items they have made or traded themselves. Stalls are free with all proceeds going to the youngsters. Young performers are also given the chance to showcase their performing talents.
Twenty stalls are scheduled to trade, run by young pe ople aged from 13 to 23. Young singer/songwriters will also be on show as they perform on stage.
Councillor Khurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for planning and economic development, said:
“Teenage Markets are becoming regular events in the Dudley borough. I am delighted that we are establishing Dudley as a place that supports youth enterprise and I hope that local residents will come along and get behind the youngsters who will have put in many hours of work to trade or perform.”
