Hive ready for Sunday's BAZAAR

A Shropshire arts venue will be hosting a seasonal Bazaar this weekend and local people are encouraged to come along and support the event which will have approximately 30 stalls on offer. Staff at the Hive are looking forward to the event which will showcase Shropshire's finest crafts and locally made products.

Stalls-holders on board for the Indian Summer Bazaar on Sunday September 22, include both vintage and fairtrade clothing, handmade jewellery, greetings cards, knitwear, artwork and home accessories. One of the key stall-holders returning once again will be Urban Folk of Grope Lane - they will be utilising the venue's baby grand piano for their display space.

White Stuff will also be making an appearance with clothing and fashion accessories; the Hive is the chosen charity partner of the Shrewsbury store.

Resident Hive DJ Josh Arrowsmith, will provide music whilst people shop - and local restaurant Eat-up of Milk Street will be selling tasty refreshments for visitors. There is also the chance for young children to participate in a fun pottery class with Little Potters; the weekly pottery session for under 5s which is hosted by the Hive

Entry for the Bazaar costs £1 for adults, with proceeds supporting the Hive's work with disadvantaged young people across the county such as Young Carers and Looked After Children. The Hive aims to give young people opportunities to access the arts, to explore their creative potential and ambitions.

Habib Malik-Mansell from the Hive said "We are really looking forward to our next Bazaar on Sunday. It's always encouraging not only to see former stall-holders return for another time - but also to witness new traders and crafts-people coming on board." He added "I really do encourage anyone who is in town on Sunday, to come along and even take the chance to do some early Christmas shopping!"

The Bazaar will be taking place at the Hive on Belmont in Shrewsbury town centre, SY1 1TE - just off the High Street, between 10am and 3pm. For information on the September 22 event, visit
