Event Boosts Footfall
The Makers Market, an exciting new event for the city, boosted high street footfall by almost 14% on Saturday 11th May.
The event, introduced to the city centre by Preston BID, saw thousands of people enjoying artisan food, drink, crafts, art and much more.
Almost 80 traders took to the city’s historic Flag Market in the sunshine, for the inaugural event in the city, which is due to return on Saturday 8th June.
A spokesperson for Preston BID said: “The Makers Market went down a storm in Preston, visitors seemed to really enjoy the event and the opportunity to purchase from small artisan producers, many of which are from the local area.
He continued: “We’ve seen the kind of crowds the event draws in Liverpool, Manchester, and Cheshire, and we knew Prestonians wouldn’t let us down in showing their support and visiting the event and the wider city centre; we look forward to supporting the Makers Market team in developing their offer in Preston”.
