Posted on 19 June 2024

Local residents are invited to support a unique and exciting event as Boston prepares to host its first Charity Shop Flea Market alongside Boston Market later this month. This community-focused event aims to bring together local charities and the public for a day of shopping, entertainment, and family fun.

The Flea Market is to be held on Saturday 22 June from 8am in Boston Market Place.

It will feature a variety of pre-loved fashion items for sale, providing shoppers with the chance to discover hidden treasures and unique finds. Adding to the excitement, a pre-loved fashion show will take place at 11am and again at 1pm, showcasing some of the best items available.

In addition to the market, Lincolnshire County Council will be on hand to promote the InTo Town bus service. This initiative encourages residents to use public transport for their shopping trips in Boston as part of the national Better Transport Week campaign.

Street entertainment will be provided by The Joker Entertainment, ensuring a fun and lively atmosphere for the entire family.

Ian Dunn, Market Manager at Boston Borough Council, said: "We are thrilled to be welcoming and part of Boston's first Charity Shop Flea Market. This event is a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together, support local charities, and enjoy a great day out. We're excited to see the variety of items on offer and the positive impact this event will have on our town."
