Colchester Market

This weekend, a dozen stalls joined Lion Walk as the beginning of a trial period! Check out a selection of lovely images from the day…

Colchester Market is coming to Lion Walk!

Starting on 19 October, Colchester Charter Market will begin a trial of hosting its Saturday market in Lion Walk, Colchester.

A dozen stalls will take up the first opportunity to trial the new location this weekend, which will cover the area around Culver Street East and will operate from 9am to 5pm.

Friday’s market will continue to operate in the High Street as usual.

The decision to trial alternative town centre locations for the Saturday market is part of a number of changes which have been agreed to enhance the market. Other agreed changes to the Charter Market include:

  • Allowing stall holders to use their own stalls providing they meet appropriate safety requirements.
  • Reducing the Colchester High Street Market Pitch to £25 per pitch and offering special offers for pitches when relevant.
  • Consulting on the introduction of an additional Market Day on Wednesdays in the future

Children will be able to collect a trail map and goody bag from event staff, located near Topshop, before taking to the special route, collecting their goodies from the sweetie cauldrons on display in each shop.

As well as the obligatory sweetie treats on Saturday 26 October there will be plenty of other Halloween antics taking place around the centre, including ghoulish face painting – so the little ones can really get in the mood! Visitors should also be on the lookout for the balloon modeler who will be roaming the walkways playing tricks and giving out spooky inflatable creations throughout the day.

All activities on Saturday October 26 will take place between 11am and 3pm. The Trick or Treat trail (only) will be available from 11am to 3pm on Halloween itself – Thursday 31st October.
