A popular market is set to return to Lowestoft next weekend.

The Lowestoft Lions Club's Petticoat Lane market will take place at the Triangle Market Place in the north end of town on Saturday, May 14.

Named after the well-known Petticoat Lane market area in the East End of London, the Lions have again teamed up with Lowestoft Vision to organise the market. And ahead of this popular charity street event, an appeal has been made for any unwanted items to be donated.

With a collection of stalls selling a wide variety of goods, the market, which runs between 9am and 1pm, will feature many of the popular traditions from the previous events including the large sale of quality-donated items, craft and vintage stalls, street entertainment and a grand auction.

After a gap of 15 years, Lowestoft Lions returned to the town for the Petticoat Lane market in May 2014 in the new location of the Triangle market.

With the Lions working in partnership with Lowestoft Vision to bring the event back into the town, the markets from the past two years have been hailed a success.

Appealing for donations of unwanted items, people are being urged to have a bit of a spring clean around their homes to find items to donate to the Lowestoft Lions.
