Create and Loveashford are pleased to announce the first ever Loveashford Marketplace will be held at this year’s Create Festival 2016.
To help celebrate Create’s special 21st birthday, Loveashford will be showcasing the best of Ashford in two special marquees. Browse and buy products from town centre businesses, view local artwork, take part in a special tombola and get your hands on some Loveashfod freebies!
Popular traders from Ashford Farmers’ Market will be joining the celebrations in the new Loveashford zone by giving visitors a taste of what they bring to the monthly market.
Sit amongst the straw bales with a freshly made cookie or sausage roll from The Jolly Gent, get a sweet treat from Deelicious Cupcakes or visit Cocoabelle for some creamy handmade truffles. Visitors will also be able to browse a selection of local art and handmade creations from artists at the Creative Collective and talented independent designer/makers from the Made in Ashford shop.
Calling all fitness fanatics - get involved and test your strength with an exercise challenge from The Gym Group and discover special offers and membership deals too.
Curators from Ashford Museum will also be there on the day spreading the news about the new Ashford Heritage Trail, which launched earlier this month, as well as providing information on the history of Victoria Park.
What’s more, there will be a special High Street Tombola with instant winning tickets for goodies and vouchers from Healthy High Street stores including Happy & Glorious, Marks & Spencer, Boots, Wilko & Stag Coffee to name a few. To enter, simply sign up to the Loveashford newsletter by submitting your email address on the day.
The Loveashford Marketplace will be open from 11am to 7pm and will be located next to the Revelation Stage.
