New look for 2020 for Lancing Village Market
Released: Tuesday, 22 October 2019
A bright new future for Lancing's Village Market is planned by Adur District Council with four new bigger and better themed seasonal events planned for 2020.
Run by the award-winning Adur Markets team, the current event brings in stallholders from across the region to sell a range of fresh products and artisanal goods in the high-profile North Road location on the third Saturday of the month.
But after feedback from traders, councillors and community groups, the decision has been made to switch the monthly market to four larger themed events held seasonally.
This will give the market renewed focus and energy, ensuring it brings people into the heart of the village at weekends while boosting footfall for local traders.
Councillor Emma Evans, Adur District Council's Executive Member for Environment, said:
“The Lancing Village Market has been transformed since it was rebranded under the Adur Markets logo and moved into its more prominent location 18 months ago.”
“Of the monthly markets held since then, by far the most popular have been our themed events.”
“After carefully listening to traders, business representatives and community groups we have decided to switch our focus onto making these four events the biggest and best they can be.”
“While the quantity of markets will reduce, it will be able to ramp up the quality of the stalls and attractions that we can offer.”
“We want to thank residents and traders for their ongoing support of the markets and look forward to a bright new future for the Village Market into 2020 and beyond.”
Heidi Rush, Vice Chair of the Lancing Traders' Association, said:
“The Lancing Traders' Association wish to express our massive thanks to the Adur Markets Team.”
“Working together, and with their support, we have been able to organise four community-based themed events at the Lancing Village Market.”
“This year has seen the launch of the Traders' Association and without them, the Market Team, we would not have been able to raise our profile as we have.”
“We look forward to working in conjunction with them in 2020 and beyond.”
The new markets, which will continue to be held on the third Saturday of the month, will be:
- Spring market focussed on Easter
- Summer market in July
- Halloween themed market in October
- Christmas event in December
Adur District Council has pledged to keep stall rates competitive in the long run while providing community groups space to promote their local events.
