Shake off the bad weather blues and step into the sunshine when Bert and Gert’s artisan and vintage market comes to Andover High Street on Sunday 11 May from 10am to 4pm.

Building on last year’s debut attendance, Bert and Gert’s is back with a busy market full of eclectic bits and bobs to tempt.  With stalls ranging from jewellery to bric a brac and sweets to craft goods, there will be something for everyone; whether searching for that elusive present for someone special or simply being indulgent!  This year they will also be bringing vintage clothing and furniture stalls to browse for that unique bargain.

Music in the Time Ring will come from group ‘The Frenzied and the Diligent’, providing a lively blend of sweet jazz and blues with some skiffle thrown in for good measure, and Greek and Indian refreshments will be available on the day to tempt the taste buds.

Leader of the council, Councillor Ian Carr, said: “Markets provide a much needed boost to High Street economies, and bring colour and vibrancy to the town.  Nearly 20 different market events are already planned for this year to encourage people to visit the town, browse, and experience all that Andover has to offer.

“Bert and Gert’s offers something a little bit different with its vintage flavour and artisan based goods which should appeal to residents and visitors alike.” 

Bert and Gert’s will be visiting Andover on 11 May, 8 June, 13 July and 10 August.
