Craft markets have been running within Milford Community Centre for many years under Milford Artisan Markets and proved to be very successful.
Milford Community Centre is adjacent to the large car park in Milford On Sea which provides the parking for this coastal village. The village centre is just a short walk away with its range of specialist shops and café’s which serve both the thriving local community as well as the many tourists who visit the village. The large village relies upon tourism, with hotels, restaurants, cafés, tea rooms, small shops, pubs and holiday camping, lodge and caravan parks. Most shops are close to its small high street, which fronts a picturesque village green.
The coast and beaches are within a few minutes walk away, making this an extremely popular tourist destination. We will use our active marketing methods to draw in the tourists and visitors to this picturesque village as well as the wealthy local population.
Our markets in 2022 demonstrated that you dont need a large footfall to create good sales at this venue. Milford on Sea Community hall is a venue where a footfall of 350+ will create very good sales. The last hour in the afternoon has, as in many of our events, proved to be the most lucrative and productive.
We use 3 of the ground floor halls each room with its own style and character. By making use of our cardboard figures, we believe that customers will continue to be drawn into all areas of the building, just like they have done previously. and are at all of our other venues. Unloading will be in the car park adjacent to the Community Centre where there are both short term and long term parking areas. Being on level access, this venue will be very good for those with any mobility issues.
