South Kesteven’s Council commercial arm, InvestSK, is promoting a lively celebration of high streets on Saturday 16 March in Market Deeping - as well as Bourne, Stamford and Grantham.
Live music, art, street performances and scavenger hunts will bring our town centres to life. In Market Deeping, the event will run from 10.30am to 3.30pm and will include a stiltwalker and a ukelele band from 11am.
The events are supposed to encourage more shoppers to visit and support local retailers.
Deepings Councillor, Ashley Baxter, has issued a rallying call to local residents and retailers.
He said: “It all seems to have been organised a bit last minute - councillors were only informed on Thursday afternoon. Nevertheless, I’d urge everyone to come along on Saturday to have fun and enjoy our brilliant high street, and shop local.
“The friendly Deepings has some fantastic shops and other organisations operating in each of our town centres and we need to promote that offer to residents and visitors alike.
"In fact, let’s use it as a dress rehearsal for the new weekly Saturday market which is due to be launched on Easter Saturday!"
