A POPULAR vintage market is making a welcome return to Bridport this Sunday, May 25.

The event at St Michael’s Trading Estate will be held for the first time since 2011.

The monthly market regularly attracted thousands of people to hunt for retro, collectible and antique items.

A spokesman for Hayward & Co which owns the estate commented: “We are pleased to welcome back the market onto the estate.

We hope to build on the success of its previous life and have established a small group, representing the traders on the estate, to take charge of the arrangements.

As responsible landlords of St Michael’s, we felt there was a need for us to have more involvement in overseeing such events and that’s what we are working towards we hope to everyone’s benefit.”

Richard Payne-Withers, of Alleyways Antiques, said: “We are thrilled at the return of the vintage market, and hope that we can once again recreate its wonderful vibrancy and atmosphere by providing the right mix of outside traders, food and live music.

“Come and join us for a great day out.”
