Little Bird markets is launching a new farmers market at Bluedot festival in 2019 and is now looking for existing traders as well as those with new ideas and concepts to be a part of it. Bluedot is an independent ticketed four-day music, science and culture event at Jodrell Bank Observatory, Cheshire taking place each July.
The event includes several music stages - from the open-air Lovell Stage beneath the Lovell Telescope and the vast Mission Control arena to the Roots world music stage, Star Field and Planet Field exhibition and workshop villages; the Star and Space Pavilion auditoriums; Elevate, the wellbeing space; and the late-night Outer Space woodland, with stunning art installations and our legendary Outer Space Bar. Bluedot attracts an audience of naturally inquisitive explorers and thinkers from across the UK, with a wide age and location spread.
With thousands of guests spending their weekend at Bluedot festival, Little Bird markets wants to work with traders to develop a farmers market that is a strong addition to the festival. This is a food based market with only ten curated pitches. We are particularly looking for a bread, cheese, fresh meats, pies, scotch eggs, oils, confectionery, biscuits, pasta, olive traders and items which would fit a picnic environment are all welcome to apply.
