This event has now ended.


Stoke-on-Trent is looking for young creative traders and talented performers for our first ever Teenage Market, which is to take place in the City Centre (Hanley).

If you are aged 12 – 25 (inclusive) you can register to take part either as a trader or performer. It’s free to participate, we will take care of the insurance and provide a gazebo; we just need you to provide lots of enthusiasm and great products, performances or services to help make this a great event.

So if you make things and would like to try and sell them, then register now to become a trader. If you want to raise your profile or practice performing in front of crowds then register now to become a performer whether it’s as a dancer, singer or circus act. Maybe you are a in a local dance group or are in band and want to show what you can do, well we have the ideal platform, we just need to hear from you.

There are fifteen 3m x 3m gazebos which can either be for sole use or may be shared by traders who only need a small space. There are also pitches available for traders who don’t require a gazebo. Just tell us what you need and we will see how best to accommodate you. We have space for both stage and street performers.

Stoke-on-Trent is signed up to Real Deal to combat the sale of fake and counterfeit goods.

We will be in touch with traders and performers before the event to confirm identities for insurance purposes and obtain parental consent for traders under the age of 17. We ask that a responsible adult supervises youngsters under the age of 17 as we cannot be held responsible for their welfare on the day.
