The Flag Market will be taken over by stalls offering products from across the continent from Wednesday 19 June until Saturday 22 June.

Councillor Robert Boswell, cabinet member for environment, said: “Travelling markets have always been hugely successful at encouraging people into the city centre which has a positive effect on the local economy.

“We need to give shoppers a reason to come into the city centre rather than shopping online. The European Gift Market will create a real buzz in the city and I am sure local people will come out and support it.”

Stalls will be selling handmade goods, Italian biscuits, jewellery, textiles, Italian leather purses & wallets, chocolate and crepes.
