A VERY WARM WELCOME to Silverton Street Market, 2017! This year, Silverton Rocks! As part of our music theme we look forward to some great musical performances, singers, bands and buskers – to join our packed programme of fun and entertainment. All the events and musical items, and when and where they’re happening, are set out in the programme. These are subject to change so see the Events Page and listen to announcements on the PA.

After the success of the Street Food last year, we have a variety of food stalls back this time. Our Pimms and Prosecco tent is also back on the Little Rec, as is our Exe Valley Brewery ‘Pop-Up Pub’ where you can enjoy a pint of ‘Top of the Hops’ brewed especially for the Street Market.

The music theme carries on into the evening, where you can dance the night away to some excellent local bands in the Community Hall.

Every penny raised from the Street Market goes directly to support local charities and organisations in the village. This year we are also pleased to support Silverton Night Landing who are raising money for the necessary lights so emergency helicopters can land in Silverton at night. More details of how the money is used can be found on the Who We Support page.

“I would like to thank the hard working and dedicated team of volunteers who work tirelessly throughout the year to put on the event, all those who help on the day and all our regular stall holders and loyal sponsors. We couldn’t run the Street Market without you all!” – Andy Mathers – Street Market Chairman

We hope you have an enjoyable, relaxing and music-filled day!

What do hops, a pop and some fancy dress have to do with Silverton Street Market?
answer:

Exe Valley Brewery are launching their celebratory brew ‘Top of the Hops’ in their brewery bar on the 24th June. Each year the Exe Valley Brewery craft a unique beer to support Silverton Street Market. This year, as the Street Market theme is ‘music’ the brewery have created a golden hoppy brew using their own spring water, Devon malt and English hops and aptly named ‘Top of the Hops’.

Everyone is welcome and if you turn up in fancy dress, Adele, Stevie Wonder, Bach, Mick Jagger, Dolly Parton, Harry Styles, the possibilities are endless, you might win the prize of free beer vouchers.
The Exe Valley Brewery bar opens on the last Saturday of the month throughout the summer from 12 noon till 6pm and is only a mile from Silverton. So pop up the hill to the bar at the brewery and enjoy the golden hoppy brew ‘Top of the Hops’.

Silverton Street Market itself will be held on Saturday 5th August

Beer is full of goodness and some would argue that barley and hops should count as two out of the necessary five a day!

Top of the Hops isn’t being brewed yet but if it is as good as last years superb Luvvly Jubbilee it will indeed be a treat for the palate. Exe Valley Brewery are one of the Street Market sponsors so encourage them by looking for their products in pubs and shops locally and further afield.

We had a great meeting the other evening and decided that the theme for 2017 will be Music. The exact title might vary a bit to something like: “Silverton Rocks” but it is basically Music!
We’re having lots of ideas including Bands, Choirs, a “Big Sing”, a Songwriting Contest and of course lots of dressing-up as David Bowie, Mozart and Pavarotti!
Please use Facebook to tell us your ideas!
Let’s make music great again! (Trumpets, anyone?)

As some of you may have noticed we had some issues with our website recently. Unfortunately we basically had to remake the website from scratch (and yes we are now backing our site up properly!!) If you do notice anything wrong please let us know by emailing louismiles@hotmail.com

We hope this didn’t cause you too much of an issue – remember it’s not too late to book your stall so don’t delay – get in touch today!
