Rebecca Rowlands from Plau bar said: “Our vision for Market Street Social in the long term is to become an inventive culture space for indie retailers, that will share the walled courtyard with Plau.

“From the team behind The Continental Beer Festival and The Plungington Gin Festival we have missed creating events and wanted to create something like this but with an intimate all year round festival vibe.  

“There will be outdoor covered areas and heating along with Plau bbq menu and pop up bar. We will Covid safe environment where you will order via an app and receive table service. We have received a huge amount of interest and we highly recommend booking to avoid disappointment.”
