Events coming to Beverley Saturday Market
The council's local growth team are planning to deliver two days of activities in the centre of Beverley towards the end of the month.
The events will be free to attend, and attendees will not be required to prebook. The two days of activities will be aimed at families and include a range of family entertainment provided by external vendors, internal council teams and local community groups.
The two days of events will include a variety of activities including craft and circus workshops, as well as free face painting, music and outdoor seating.
The events will be held on Monday 30 May and Tuesday 31 May at the pedestrianised area of Beverley Saturday Market from 10am until 4pm on both days.
The local growth team at the council are leading on the planning and delivery of the events with the support of internal teams and external community groups. There will be activities and entertainment delivered by St Mary's Church, Beverley Minster, Beverley Library & Treasure House and Beverley FM. Fantastic Faces and Aba Daba Circus will also be attending.
The local growth team are part of an internal working group who are meeting regularly to identify potential uses for the pedestrianised area in Saturday Market. The current pedestrianised area is a pilot using DfT Emergency Active Travel funding to trial the scheme. The intention of this project is to trial the area as a community event space to support the development of the final plan.
Cllr Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic development and tourism at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "These are further events delivered by the councils local growth team to encourage more visitors into the area and support local businesses. Plans are to make use of the fantastic area at Saturday Market in Beverley by putting on several days of entertainment during the Summer half-term.
"Events like this rely on good attendances so I would encourage visitors and residents to get involved during the early part of week - it would be wonderful to see lots of smiles on faces!"
