Twilight Markets return to QEII Square

06 October 2015

The excitement around Albury's QEII Square just keeps on growing. Following one of the city's biggest celebrations with the opening of MAMA, the QEII Twilight Markets will return on Thursday 8 October from 5pm to 8pm.

The markets will be held on the second Thursday of every month from October to March and with MAMA open until 7pm on Thursdays, people can make it a night out.

Nearly 80 stall holders will sell handmade and unique goods, including upmarket vintage clothing, potted plants, essential oils, candles, handmade jewellery, cookbooks, bottled and fresh produce and more.

AlburyCity Mayor Henk van de Ven said the boutique market was a great opportunity to support local traders and enjoy some live music.

"It's great to see families out on the green lawns of QEII Square soaking up the atmosphere, enjoying a meal and listening to some great musicians," Cr van de Ven said.

"The upcoming markets will also feature a selection of local craft brewers so people can come along and sample the region's best brews and ciders."

Visitors to the 8 October market will be entertained by Mount Beauty brothers Gabriel and Michael Saafield who perform as The Royce Twins. They featured on TV's X Factor and describe their music as easy listening, modern pop with a dash of country.

For the budding young artists, smocks, paints and easels will be set up to allow children to create all sorts of masterpieces.
