Definitely live music of some sort or maybe a farmers market or a themed market of some sort. Street theatre -no living statues though!!

An outdoor movie screen would be pretty good but perhaps a little unrealistic.I hope the lightings up to scratch.

GGGG,

Might be worth doing a poll to elicit something we can all get behind for the new Market Place? Maybe even sending it to every contact in the membership list? With enough backing it should have enough critical mass to be presented to at least the new Town Council for consideration.

Is it too much to ask for. quite simply, a market in the market place? I have heard, however, that stallholders are not going to take up slots in the new market places as they are not permitted to take vehicles onto it.

Great idea. It's about time we put together another "Monthly" newsletter.

What ones at Morpeth? Last time I looked there were three or four. I don't know what the problem is, just what i've been told. Interesting about the loading bay - where would that be?

Right, so how many stallholders will be able to park there at one time and unload/load their stalls and gear, I wonder? One, two, ten? Sounds like a recipe for a big traffic jam to me.I shall have a look later when i'm down that way.

Can't imagine it causing much traffic if the majority of stall holders set up at 7am?

If the area does end up not being big enough for everyone, then hopefully it'll be a case of quality over quantity (although it's hard to see who exactly will provide the 'quality').

I think that will be a popular suggestion, although if it's anything like the first incarnation of the previous market place regeneration we may get that from mother nature for free.

That's if they can all park at once!!

This I agree with, but when was the last time you visited a market that had any quality?

Not for nothing, but this teenage rollerblader isn't exactly filled with enthusiasm at any of these options. Buskers? Street Theatre? Craft Fairs? F that S!

Taking into account all the boodyhoodying on the other thread about parking charges, why not simply convert the market place into more parking spaces, eh?

There's some joined-up thinking for you, right there.

J-U T!

sorry this culture isn't up to the hoody clan pack standards! maybe they could install a ring and egg on knife fights and incurage underage drinking! bedlington is ofcourse a market town! not LA or new york!

:blink:

Well I was going to add "Rap Battles" but I thought it could come under the umbrella of Live Music if the definition was stretched enough.

    • A school girl from Bedlington was a natural on the catwalk when she modelled at the prestigious London Fashion Week.
      Adorable six-year-old Indie Watson was offered the lucky chance to parade down the runway wearing clothes made by top children's wear designers in front of the whole globe.
      After their little girl was chosen from hundreds of models from around the world, Indie's parents Carly and Dean Watson were bursting with pride and have made some lifelong family memories.
      And Indie loved every minute of being in the spotlight and made friends with other children from across the world.
      While out with Indie people would regularly mention to Carly how pretty she was, so when Indie turned three years old, Carly decided to try to get her into the modelling industry.
      After struggling to get Indie signed onto local agencies, the Northumberland mum set up an Instagram account to showcase images of her daughter which started to get quite a lot of attention from photographers.
