Andover’s newest monthly market will be bursting back onto the High Street on Sunday 9 April for an egg-stra special Easter edition.
Open from 10am to 3pm the day will feature free activities for families as well as designer-maker stalls, sweet treats, music, food and drink.
Local traders will be popping up in front of the Guildhall to showcase their unique artisan goods such as original art, gifts and handmade jewellery, as well as New York-inspired cookies and hand-baked shortbread.
Andover Tap will be serving a selection of cocktails, local ales and spirits from their mobile horse-box bar and there will be other soft drinks available.
For the April market Test Valley Borough Council has partnered with local charity Unity to run a Golden goose egg hunt between 10am until 12pm, featuring golden eggs created by students at Andover College. Families will be invited to collect an entry form from the Unity stall at Second Sundays, search the High Street for the hidden eggs and return their findings to claim a special Easter treat.
In Andover, from Andover BID will also be visiting Second Sundays from 12pm to 1pm to host their Easter Bonnet display and prize giving. Launching the week before Easter Sunday, families will have the chance to create their very own bonnets and bring them along to the market to be displayed. A special prize giving will take place at 1pm on the day to celebrate the best entries. To find out more about how to enter visit the In Andover website: www.inandover.co.uk/town-centre-events/.
Alongside the egg hunt there will be two free craft workshops running throughout the day, for all ages, offering visitors the chance to make some Easter themed prints and create stitched flower brooches, perfect for spring.
Second Sundays has been developed by HemingwayDesign, on behalf of Test Valley Borough Council, to support emerging and established independent businesses from the region.
Second Sundays will be open 10am to 3pm on Sunday 9 April, and monthly thereafter on the second Sunday of every month.
