Morecambe’s Festival Market is giving budding entrepreneurs the opportunity to get a taste of what it’s like to run your own business with special introductory rates.
For just £50 per month for the first three months, traders will be able to get off to a flying start by benefitting from regular shoppers and visitors to the market as well as the additional footfall generated by the market’s annual calendar of events.
Smaller stalls are also available from just £6 per day and ideal for start-up businesses or those who simply want to get a taste of running their own business.
But you'll have to be quick: the special rate is only available for those who take up a stall before the end of March.
To be eligible for the offer, new traders must be bringing something new to the market.
"Morecambe's Festival Market presents an ideal opportunity for people to get a taste of what it's like to run their own business or expand on an existing one," says Councillor Jon Barry, who is Cabinet member with responsibility for Lancaster City Council markets.
"As well as being popular with local people, the market also benefits from a whole host of events taking place in the town as well as being just a stone's throw away from Morecambe promenade."
Anyone wishing to benefit from the introductory rate of £50 for a full stall for the first three months (other costs may apply) or a half stall should register their interest by completing the on-line form at www.lancaster.gov.uk/traderinterest or by contacting the Market Office - tel. 01524 414251.
