It is being planned for the council’s local growth team to do two days of activities in the centre of Beverley towards the end of the month.

There will be no pre-registration required for the events, and there will be no charge to attend. Over the course of two days, a variety of family entertainment will be provided by outside vendors as well as council-sponsored teams and community organisations.

In addition to craft and circus workshops, face painting, music, and outdoor seating will be available during the two-day festival.

The events will take place on Monday 30 May and Tuesday 31 May between 10am and 4pm on both days at the pedestrianised area of the Beverley Saturday Markets.

Local growth team members are heading up the planning and implementing of the events with the assistance of council departments and external community groups.

Cllr Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic development and tourism at , said:

“These are further events delivered by the council’s local growth team to encourage more visitors into the area and support local businesses. Plans are to make use of the fantastic area at Saturday Market in Beverley by putting on several days of entertainment during the Summer half-term.

“Events like this rely on good attendances so I would encourage visitors and residents to get involved during the early part of the week – it would be wonderful to see lots of smiles on faces!”

Activities and entertainment will be provided by St Mary’s Church, , and Treasure House, as well as Fantastic Faces and Aba Daba Circus.

Members of the local growth team are part of an internal working group identifying potential uses for Saturday Market’s pedestrianised area. Piloting the scheme with DfT funding for emergency active travel has resulted in the current pedestrianised area.

As part of this project, the area will be used as a community event space to support the process of developing a final plan.
