Swindon's town centre is set to be filled with fresh food, handcrafted goods and live music as a new street market launches this month.

This month Swindon's town centre will be unveiling a brand-new new monthly street market.

As part of a collaborative scheme between inSwindon BID and The Anonymous Travelling Market, the Sunday Street Market will launch on Sunday 26 May in Havelock Square.

The new instalment to the town centre will take place on the last Sunday of every month and will host a range of stalls which will include food, fashion, handcrafted goods and jewellery.

inSwindon BID CEO, Di Powell said: “We are very excited about this new event and hope to build a Sunday Street Market culture, with support from the community. We would encourage local traders, craft makers and groups to get involved.

"The new market will give visitors another place in which to browse and enjoy everything the town centre has to offer on a Sunday.” 

In addition to consumer goods the Sunday Street Market will also provide a platform for local live buskers for visitors to enjoy.

The Sunday Street Market will take place in Havelock Square from 10am to 4pm:

  • Sunday 26 May
  • Sunday 30 June
  • Sunday 28 July
  • Sunday 25 August
