De Beauvoir Marketplace - got something you want to sell? Sign up now!

It’s not too late for people to sign up as exhibitors for the first ever De Beauvoir Marketplace, taking place in St Peter's Crypt on Sunday June 12th.

If you’re a local shopkeeper, plumber, electrician, architect, garden designer, accountant, cabinet maker, plasterer, painter and decorator, upholsterer, newsagent, grocer, greengrocer, pub landlord, artist, furniture restorer, gardener, general handyperson, run a car repair workshop or have any other trade or craft, then this is your chance to meet your neighbours and get better known locally without spending a fortune on advertising.

The idea of the event - being run for the first time this year - to give local businesses a chance to get more widely known within De Beauvoir, and for people to barter for goods and services if they wish.

The organisers are also keen for you to take part if you have a hobby and would like to make some money from it, whether that be sewing, knitting, crochet, home-made greetings cards, plant cuttings and seedlings, baked goods or delicious ethnic food.

The cost will be very low to exhibitors: £10 for businesses, £5 for sole traders and free for deserving causes. Anyone who can't attend in person on the day can pay £5 to leave publicity material for distribution.

If you'd like to take part in what promises to be a great event please email for more information or with any questions. Entry to the public will be free and will include light refreshments, so organisers are hoping for a great turnout.

And if you don't want to exhibit - please put June 12th in your diary and come along to see what De Beauvoir has to offer! The event takes place from 2-5pm in St Peter’s Crypt under St Peter's Church on De Beauvoir Road.
