Banbridge Teenage Market

As part of the Banbridge Busking festival, YouthBank Banbridge is delighted to host Northern Ireland’s first Teenage Market in the town to showcase local creative young people and talented young performers to create a vibrant festival-style event and a fun day out for the whole community. The market is much more than shopping: it is the perfect opportunity for young people to be entrepreneurial, to try out a new business idea and sell creative products. The Teenage Market is run by YouthBank Banbridge who will take care of the logistics (stalls, insurance fee, general marketing and PR activities etc).

It’s really easy to get involved – all you need to do is visit the Traders and Performers section of the website to register and create your own profile about who you are and what you want to do.

When you have secured a trading place, your stall on the market is free and we simply ask you to consider a voluntary contribution to the work of YouthBank Banbridge in the form of a percentage of your sales. All donations from traders will go to supporting YouthBank Banbridge’s mental health projects.

YouthBank Banbridge is a young people’s fund run by young people to support small-scale projects; in 2016, these projects all focus on young people’s mental health. The Banbridge YouthBank team encourages participating young traders and performers to not only invite their friends and families on the day, but to also create a buzz on social media in the run up to the market to make this a truly memorable event that will pave the way for five more teenage markets in Banbridge in the coming year.
