The new-look market has been agreed with a five year contract with events contractors LSD Promotions, who host a variety of high profile markets across the Midlands area. Tamworth Borough Council's Economic Development and Regeneration team have worked closely with LSD Promotions on a plan that enables the market to appeal to a wider and more diverse audience by adding more choice with a variety of high quality services and produce. Dermot McGillicuddy, Director of LSD Promotions said: "We feel the Food and Drink Festival is a great opportunity for traders to come and see what a great offer Tamworth has, but also as a footfall driver for all business in the town to take advantage of after such a difficult 18 months." He said Tamworth had been awarded funding from the Future High Streets Fund to develop a town centre that meets the needs of 21st century shoppers, residents and businesses, adding: "We are proud to have a small role in these redevelopment plans and are fully behind the council on the redevelopment."

Loads of different foods to try

Councillor 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 in October 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.

"Tamworth aims to establish a leading reputation for having a high quality street market that draws people to come into the town centre on key days. We hope people will help us welcome new and existing traders and give their much-needed support to our small business community."
