Flashback Friday: Official opening of Kirkby Market

by Gemma Melling

This week’s Flashback takes us back just two years, to the first day of trading on Kirkby’s new market in 2014.

A celebration was held to mark the occasion with music, games, giveaways and fun activities for children including Punch and Judy Shows and free ice cream all day!

Unlike the previous market, the new Kirkby market was fully covered, so for the first time shoppers could enjoy browsing bargains on the 130 stalls come some rain or shine.

There were also longer opening hours for the market to look forward to – it was the start of the current trading times of 9am – 4.30pm Monday to Saturday.
