MORRIS dancers and young stage stars will be on hand to entertain shoppers at a monthly market.

Amateur actors from the Identity Youth Theatre will be performing alongside morris dancers at the next Darlington Sunday People’s Market, which takes place in Darlington town centre from 11am to 4pm on Sunday, July 6.

Dozens of independent traders from across the North-East take part in the monthly market, selling everything from cupcakes and crafts, to jams and jewellery.

The market was set up by volunteers to rejuvenate the town centre and was last year crowned the nation’s favourite at the National Association of British Market Authorities Market of the Year competition.

It also came runner up in this year’s competition.
