Knighton Community Market celebrated a rather special anniversary last week. In addition to the usual variety of stalls, shoppers were treated to extraordinary live music from Trovatori, a duo whose mix of grand opera, love songs and classics from the shows completely bowled over stallholders and shoppers alike. All of this was organised to celebrate the fact that on October 11th David and Leonie Miller were bringing their wonderful cafe to Knighton Community Market for the 100th time! Not only did David and Leonie lay on some special music for the occasion, but they also baked and gave everyone present a slice of a very special anniversary cake free of charge.
The success of their efforts over the years is demonstrated at every market by the numbers of regulars who meet friends and neighbours over a drink and a snack, whatever the weather outside. Thank you David and Leonie for helping make Knighton Community Market a little bit special.
The next market takes place on October 25th when stallholders will be putting on lots of special attractions, not to mention some silly costumes, to celebrate Halloween. A children's craft workshop will be held in the reynolds Room where participants can have fun making all manner of spooky things, including masks to enter in the mask competition at the end of the morning. Masks made at home can be brought in on the day and there will also be a prize for the best Halloween fancy dress.
