TAVISTOCK’S first ‘teenage market’ is all set to take place this Saturday (May 20) from 11am to 3pm.
Local teenagers will be performing live music and selling their wares, which include clothing, photography, apple juice, sweet treats and also contemporary clothing. The teenage led Amnesty International Youth Club will also be on hand, raising awareness and handing out balloons.
It is hoped this event will be the first of many and is supported by West Devon Borough and Tavistock Town Council to give young people a free platform to showcase their creative talents.
Nadine Trout, commissioning manager for West Devon Borough Council said: ‘There are over 30 teenage markets across the country and Salisbury is currently our nearest, so it’s great that Tavistock is a forerunner for the far South West.
‘We hope to run further events this year in the early autumn and Christmas and would be keen to see young people from a range of backgrounds and interests get involved, whether studying or unemployed, there’s support on hand to get involved.’
