Fore Street, Silver Street and Market Street will be closed to traffic so you can wander through the attractions and stop to listen to the performers.

Trowbridge Teenage Market – a huge success

Saturday 17th October saw the Trowbridge Teenage Market take place as part of the Trowbridge Arts Festival in Market Street and Fore Street.

We doubled the stall holders from 2014 and had a full days entertainment from local talent.

Phoebe Hart, one of our youngest stall holders at just 13, had this to say

“Dear Trowbridge town team, I really enjoyed the teen market because it was a chance for me to express my entrepreneurial skills. I made a total of £80 which I am very happy with. I am very thankful for all your help and emails.
Yours sincerely Phoebe Hart”
