Lincoln Teenage Christmas Markets


BG Futures, The Careers, Employability and Enterprise arm of Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) sprang into the festive spirit by yet again hosting the Lincoln Teenage Market last weekend.

The two-day market spectacular was held in Lincoln City Square Co-op, and latterly as part of THE Christmas Extravaganza on the university campus. This gave young entrepreneurs double the opportunity to display their array of talents, whilst the BGSU Dance Society spread a little Yuletide magic. Becky Goodman, Enterprise Development Manager at BGU said: “Both events were extremely successful for our traders and performers, and it was great to see the community come out and support us at both of these events. I am thankful, once again to Lincolnshire Co-op for providing us with such a welcoming indoor space during the colder months, and to the BG Futures team for giving up their weekend to run two fantastic events. We also had a resident DJ, Luke, with us on Sunday and this proved a great hit – I am hopeful that we can bring Luke on board again during the warmer months when we are outside in The Cornhill and City Square”.

Both markets had everything the people of Lincoln could possibly want for their Christmas stockings. A variety of handmade crafts, jewellery, etched glassware and personalised gifts were on offer, whilst the Linkage Community Trust stall enabled the charity to showcase the creativity of their students. The BG Futures team also ran free crafts on both days and are looking forward to doing this again at the next market in the city Square Co-op on the 9th February.

So, how does the Teenage Market help young people realise and achieve their dreams?

Well, in the case of Rebecca Hesketh who used the free platform of the initiative to discover whether consumers had an appetite for her products, said: “I wasn’t sure if my business was something I wanted to keep pursuing, but taking part in the weekend’s markets has given me a big confidence boost. I’m looking forward to making more products to sell at future markets”. Rebecca’s business, Hesketh Creates, focuses on illustrating and designing models of local landmarks.

If you’d like to find out more about the Lincoln Teenage Market, or perhaps get involved at the next event please contact the Teenage Market team at [email protected]. You can also follow Lincoln Teenage Market on Facebook.
