2024 will have three great markets and once again we’ve got some fabulous, very carefully chosen traders and local groups for you:

Pagan Arts & Crafts in Westbury Gardens with about a dozen stalls selling everything for the practicing and closet pagan*.

  • Pagan was originally a Latin word meaning country bumpkin.

Artisan Market outside St Margaret’s Hall with 29 stalls showcasing the work of high quality local creatives. We have limited numbers of each type of stall so we don’t have wall to wall jewellers or woodturners, and we’ve tried to avoid duplicating any speciality shops already in the town.

Trinity Market In Holy Trinity Churchyard en route to the Wiltshire Music Centre Stage. It will contain a mix of community and artisan stalls. Our town is buzzing with clubs, associations and groups for all ages and interests – at least 106 that we known of. The GMF is a community event so Trinity Market gives them a venue to showcase what they do, to recruit new members and raise some funds.

We haven’t allocated places yet but the following pitches have booked so far. Lots more Pagan stalls yet to be added:
