Hammersmith's Spring Market draws thousands to town centre
On a sunny bank holiday Saturday, Hammersmith & Fulham Council greeted thousands of visitors to Lyric Square and King Street for a traffic-free Spring Market, and HammersmithLondon BID was on hand to support the event. The pedestrianised market had a family festival affair with visitors enjoying the offerings from market stalls and street entertainment that included stilt walkers, comedy, children’s workshops and live performances on stage.
The HammersmithLondon cabin took pride of place in Lyric Square to greet shoppers and support local businesses with their operational needs. As proud sponsors of ArtsFest, the cabin also served as a platform to promote the event as ArtsFest artists took to the stage and square to entertain and share information about upcoming events.
Events such as the market and the upcoming Summer Festival are a great way to draw people to the town centre by providing unique shopping and social experiences. It establishes Hammersmith as a great place to live, work and socialise and we look forward to taking part in more events. Look out for the market when it returns in December to celebrate Christmas.
