Re: Market Hall Refurbishment

It certainly looks better than when we were there - look forward to going in again at the back end of the year - fantastic currant teacake bacon butties at the first cafe inside the door. Thanks for the photo Atarah

Re: Market Hall Refurbishment

Had a look at it on Saturday......and I'm sorry if this sounds negative, but it looks only half finished.......I'm not sure if that is because of the open spaces.......it didn't look like it was a 'buzzing' place...it looked a bit lonely and friendless. Not enough stalls, half hearted bunting. No, it doesn't do it for me. Not what I was expecting at all.

I think it looks like a low calorie version of a market hall....a bit like the outside market really.
I don't think it will draw too many visitors in.
I don't know what it cost, but I think they were diddled.

Note to self : keep taking the anti-cynicsim pills.

They need to do something with that big space near the cafe's they have earmarked for events etc. Build a stage or something so people can see it has a use.

Re: Market Hall Refurbishment

Not sure yet. When I was in last week .. still a bit messy .. will reserve judgement.

Went in for my tobacco .. couldn't find the stall. Have they come out or did I not look properly ? Can't see them putting it upstairs (didn't look)... us smokers would be gasping for breath by the time we got up those stairs..

Although the stairs are very smart... I feel they are a little large and disproportionate to the size of the hall ?
