Thetford’s first night market hailed a success
A new night market attracted scores of visitors last night (Tuesday) who took advantage of the local music and variety of stalls on offer.
The event, a collaboration between the town council and social enterprise group Sort It (The School of Radical Thought in Thetford), featured crafts and food, with performances from musician Daisy Windsor with her band Wytchazle, Thetford band .1normal featuring Alan Wycherley, and Bury St Edmunds singer songwriter Adam Moss.
Town councillor and Sort It director Terry Jermy said he estimated about 1,000 people attended the event on the Market Place.
He added: 'It was brilliant - there were so many people there which shows there is the demand.
'There weren't lots of stalls there because it was the first one but they've got about double the amount for the next ones.'
