Traders wanted for Bridge Street Christmas stalls

15 September 2023

Peterborough City Council is looking for businesses to run 12 Christmas pop-up stalls along Bridge Street during the Festive period.

Stallholders will be able to sell Christmas gifts, treats, edibles and experiences to shoppers during one of the busiest times of the year from 1 to 23 December.

The Christmas Market will coincide with the arrival of the outdoor skating rink on Cathedral Square from 1 December.

Cllr Marco Cereste, Cabinet Member for Growth and Regeneration, said: “This is a great opportunity for traders to get a piece of the Christmas action on one of our busiest streets.

“We’re planning to fill Bridge Street with Festive cheer throughout December, and would love retailers to be involved with the best Peterborough has to offer.”

Those interested will need to commit to the dates of 1-23 December from 10am to at least 5pm each day.
