Easter Bazaar gathers pace

The Hive Music and Media Centre is preparing for a special Easter themed Bazaar, which will take place at the Shrewsbury venue later next month.

Bosses at the centre are encouraging independent traders, artists and crafts-people from across the county and beyond to exhibit at the event. Applications are already flooding in for stalls and only a limited number are now available!

Taking place on Saturday March 30, the Easter Bazaar at the Hive promises to offer a diverse selection of vintage inspired stalls, celebrating and showcasing the best of Shropshire's creative and resourceful small businesses.

Previous Bazaar events have drawn in crowds of over 200 people and offered visitors the opportunity to browse stalls selling vintage clothing, greetings cards, childrens books, locally produced furniture, artwork, photography, jewellery, handmade gifts and lots more.

Habib Malik-Mansell at the Hive said "The Hive really comes alive for our seasonal Bazaars and as the hosting venue, we do our utmost to ensure that the stall prices are kept at a minimal level, to help make it as affordable as possible for people to exhibit, whether they are a first-timer or a seasoned trader". He added "Our Festive Bazaar in December saw a jewellery business from Cannock join us. It's really positive to see interest from further afield across the West Midlands and I encourage people to book their stalls immediately".

Stalls at the Easter event are available priced at £10 for a standard space and £20 for a double space, with organisers being particularly keen to encourage new traders to come on board.
