With approximately 10,000 visitors, our ‘Big Launch’ event exceeded even our loftiest expectations and has set the standards higher for our second market which takes place this month!
September’s market hosted a huge range of quintessentially eccentric items and all sorts of goodies, from jewellery to soaps, tattoo, clothing, and glassware. There was also an awesome array of appetizing street food including African cuisine, seafood, traditional delicacies, a vintage French bakery, Mexican dishes, barbecues, crepes…and even more…. but let’s stop here not make ourselves too hungry before the next event!
From the giggle-inducing antics of Street Comedy, huge ‘wows’ of astonishment at Pantheatrix’s fire breathing, to the bopping and boogying along with fantastic vintage acts like Lewis Jordan Brown and Miss Annie, our amazing entertainers gave our visitors a real treat on the day and the comments we’ve had since have been overwhelming!
All in all, we couldn’t have hoped for a better first Metropole Market. And we are ‘buzzing’ for the next one.
With that, we are already moving full steam ahead towards October’s Market on the 29th which will be a spectacular Day of the Dead Halloween Fiesta. Taking inspiration from the Southern Mexican ‘Dias de los Muertos’, a celebration of the dearly departed, the next Metropole Market will be anything but somber.
Our very own ‘Dias de los Muertos’ parade will be transforming Holdenhurst Road with bright painted faces and candy skulls plus some seriously sensational costumes led by Miss Dorset and Miss England Social Media Queen 2017, Samantha Bumford.
We also want you to join in the fun as we’ll be hosting a Day of the Dead costume competition where we will award the Best Hombre (male), Best Chica (female), Best Couple and Best Kid with some amazing prizes! So, it’s time to start looking for your jaw-dropping costumer to wear now… The prizes will be announced soon and trust us you won’t want to miss out!
For now, make sure to follow us on social media and check our website regularly for more Dias De Los Muertos updates!
