Pannier Market, Guildhall


This strand - which was completed late in November 2023 - involves the repurposing and diversification of the market into a flexible space for a more varied and ambitious programme of markets, cultural events and community gatherings.

Some of the work we completed includes:

  • refurbishment of the Market Street toilets to provide: An entrance from the market as well as the existing entrance from market street, five unisex toilets, one baby changing facility with adult WC and child WC as well as one disabled toilet
  • relocation of the office to the old Pannier Market cafĂ©
  • repairs to the roof including gutters and windows
  • redecoration
  • glazing of doors to Butchers Row
  • refurbishment of corn store into an insulated/self-contained space and traders' storage area
  • relocation of storage/bins area to rear wall adjacent to Queens Theatre
  • external refurbishment works to The Guildhall

The Market has now fully reopened and has already hosted some exciting events, such as Luke Jerram's Museum of the Moon, yoga events, silent discos and a carnival-themed week over February 2024 half-term.
