support the redevelopment plans in the town centre over the next five years.

“We have more than 60 stalls confirmed for the Food and Drink Festival which gives

traders a great opportunity to come and see what a great offer Tamworth has, but also as

a footfall driver for all business in town to take advantage of after such a difficult year.”

Cllr Daniel Cook, Tamworth Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Economy and Waste,

said: “We are delighted to welcome the Food and Drink Festival to the town this week and

look forward to seeing new traders offering something different for visitors to try.

“The renewed market contract has given us the opportunity to develop a new vision for the

market that will hopefully give us some of the things people have been asking for, such as

a greater variety of stalls and more specialist and niche market events like the Food and

Drink Festival.

“We hope people will help us welcome new and existing traders and give their much-

needed support to our small business community.”

The revamped market will also work alongside the major Future High Streets Fund

development and Gungate project towards the overall vision for an improved town centre

that is fit for the future.
