BURNLEY Council is bringing back a weekly bric a brac market due to popular demand.

Traders will have the opportunity to trade every Wednesday on a casual basis selling good quality 'pre-loved' items in Burnley Market Hall.

An antique and bric a brac market used to be held every week in the former open market site which closed in 2016.

The bric a brac markets will be in Burnley Market Hall from March 18 and then every Wednesday.

Councillor Gordon Birtwistle, the council’s executive member responsible for the market hall, said: “Shoppers asked the council to bring the market back and we’ve answered their call.

“Bookings are now being taken to trade and we’re hoping the weekly sale will attract more customers to the market hall. It’s a great opportunity to browse, banter and pick up a bargain.

“The fact that the items are used and being recycled means it’s tapping into the climate change agenda to help save our planet by re-using items rather than buying new.”

Anyone interested in trading on the market is asked to call Marie or Andy on 01282 477188.
