We are excited to announce that this December, Barking Riverside Limited (BRL) are partnering with the new Resident Events Panel to bring the ‘Barking Made’ Winter Market to Barking Riverside for one weekend only.
Taking place at The Wilds on Saturday 4th of December and the Rivergate Centre on Sunday 5th of December, the Winter Market will offer an opportunity for the community to come together at two venues in Barking Riverside.
The market will bring an exciting array of local traders and small businesses to sell unique, hand-crafted produce and gifts. There will also be street food vendors selling hot food and drinks, and family friendly entertainment.
The Resident Events Panel is a group of Barking Riversiders who works in partnership with BRL to propose event ideas, give advice on which activities the community will want to see and engage with other residents and community groups to deliver them. They recently were re-grouped in late October and will lead on the organisation of several events a year.
Sara Bloch, Community Partnership Lead at Barking Riverside Limited, comments: “The ‘Barking Made’ Winter Market is the start of an exciting collaboration between the recently re-formed Residents Events Panel and BRL. We can’t wait to work closely with the new resident committee to deliver these two market days in December, which will offer a chance for people to socialise with their neighbours whilst supporting local, independent businesses.”
The Barking Made Winter Market will take place on:
Saturday 4th December – 4pm – 8pm
The Wilds, Northgate Road IG11 0AN
Sunday 5th December – 12 noon – 5pm
The Rivergate Centre, IG11 0FJ
