Over 50% of stalls sold already

Organisers of a unique indoor fair which is returning for the fourth time, have announced today that over half of the available stalls have already sold - with the event not taking place until September!

The Hive in Shrewsbury will host their Indian Summer Bazaar in the autumn and prospective stall-holders are encouraged to find out about showcasing their products!

Previous Bazaars have seen hundreds of visitors come along and they have offered a truly diverse selection of varied stands. The aims of the Hive's Bazaar events, are to provide a special shopping experience whilst giving the best of local traders the chance to take centre stage.

Stalls-holders already on board for the Indian Summer event include fairtrade clothing, greetings cards, handmade jewellery and knitwear. Urban Folk of Grope Lane will be utilising the venue's baby grand piano as a stand - and White Stuff will be making an appearance with clothing and accessories. There will be a resident Hive DJ plus the return of the lovely Eat-up from Milk Street, who will be selling quality refreshments.

New traders and first-timers are invited to get involved and consider having a stall. They are available priced at only £10, which is highly competitive when compared to other fairs and opportunities across the county.

Habib Malik-Mansell from the Hive said "We keep the stall price as mimimal as possible to make the Bazaar an attractive and affordable proposition for crafts-people and other small businesses who wish to give it a go and get involved!" He added "The Indian Summer Bazaar will be taking-place on Sunday September 22 between 10am and 3pm - and I certainly encourage people to book their stands as soon as possible."

Entry for the Bazaar on the day costs £1 for adults, with proceeds supporting the Hive's work with disadvantaged young people across the county - delivering opportunities for them to explore their creative potential through the power of music and arts.
