Westgate Hall Market returns as we reopen as a Covid-secure venue with our Market on 19 September 2020! Following a period of closure due to the pandemic we can’t wait to welcome you back.
To find out how you can book your stall, call or email us first and let us know what you produce/make and sell we can then send you an application form.
We aim to get back to you within 48 hours on weekdays but please bear with us as we work hard to reopen the Hall. You can always pick up the phone and tell us a bit about your story and why you would like to have a stall at Westgate Hall Market.
We are committed to increasing footfall to the market, to achieve this we:
- Place articles in the local press
- Distribute flyers and posters to homes and businesses in Canterbury
- Place a monthly advertisement in Index magazine (20,000 copies distributed locally)
- Place Market signage in the High Street leading up to each Saturday market
- Post on Westgate Hall’s social media platforms including twitter, Instagram and Facebook
- Promote it on our website (currently under review watch out for more changes soon!)
- Run regular promotions with My Canterbury
- Post on Free Community Listing sites.
- Host pop up events focussing on local skills, makers and food
The success of the market also relies on all our stallholders using their own contacts and networks to promote their presence at the market. By working together, the market will continue to grow.
