Andover High Street News - Bert and Gert’s is Back in Town!

Seeking something different, or that special present for a loved one?  Bert and Gert’s Vintage and Artisan market is back in Andover on Sunday 8 June, filling the High Street with its second marvellous market of the year.

Visitors to the market will find a smorgasbord of delights as Bert and Gert’s mission is to support, encourage and promote small, local businesses, and to bring arts, crafts and vintage to a wider audience.   With live music in the High Street from celidah band Threepenny Bit and a special appearance from the Winchester Ukulele Jam, it will be an event not to be missed.  Stalls on Sunday will include arts and crafts, jewellery, candles, homeware and vintage goodies; whilst food from The Filling Station and Hog Roast will set taste buds tingling and provide shoppers with sustenance.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Ian Carr, said: “Although the weather has been unpredictable lately, the support of Test Valley residents for the exciting and wide ranging programme of markets in Andover High Street has been phenomenal.  If we all work together we can keep events like this happening in Andover, and help to make sure that the local economy and the local community continue to thrive.”

Bert and Gert’s market will be open from 11am to 5pm. The Encounters Shop in the Upper High Street will also be open for the duration of the Sunday market, so pop in and experience a whole new way of looking at Andover and help to shape the future of the town.

Two more Bert and Gert’s markets will be held this year on Sunday 13 July and Sunday 10 August.
