Extra attractions at Makers Market Extra attractions at Makers Market

Orchard Day activities where visitors will be able to taste several superb varieties of apple grown here in the UK, to juice apples and ask questions of South Derbyshire’s Environmental Education Team are taking place alongside the September Magpie Makers Market in Swadlincote on Saturday September 30, 2017.

There’s an extra attraction for the children too, with Funky Faces offering free face painting between 10am and 1pm.

These extras line up alongside the host of regular features at the free-of-charge monthly event which gives visitors a chance to see and buy arts, crafts, food and drink produce designed and made by 'not-on-the-high-street' traders.

Stalls offering everything from locally-produced wines and jams to handmade children’s clothes, knitted gifts and vintage memorabilia will be there alongside the traditional Saturday market.

Live entertainment will be provided by singer Andy B. Goode who will be performing during the day. He covers 1950s/60s rock and roll and swing with epic hits from artistes over the decades including Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, Elvis, the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Michael Buble.

Co-organised by Curly Magpie and Friends and Swadlincote Markets, the Swadlincote Magpie Makers Market takes place on Saturday September 30, 2017 from 9am to 4pm in the High Street, Swadlincote, DE11 8JE.
