About the event:

Metropole Street Market          Landsdowne Bournemouth       

Spectacular ‘Day of the Dead’ themed event -  ‘quintessentially eccentric’ street market organised on Lansdowne’s Holdenhurst Road.  

The ‘Day of the Dead’ theme was inspired by the southern Mexican holiday ‘Dias de Los Muertos’, a day of honouring deceased loved ones. Metropole Market’s October theme, just in time for Halloween, will be all about celebrating and having fun.

The event will feature a costume competition where attendees are invited to dress up accordingly. Prizes will be awarded for the ‘Best Male’, ‘Best Female’, ‘Best Child’ and ‘Best Couple’ Day of the Dead costumes. Additionally, participants can expect a jaw-dropping ‘Dias de Los Muertos’ parade led by Miss Dorset 2017 and Miss England Social Media Queen 2017, Samantha Bumford.

October’s street market is also set to be even bigger and more diverse with the addition of 20 extra local trade stalls plus an extended line up of outstanding live performances from the region’s best entertainers and musicians. Among the names confirmed for the entertainment so far are returning favourites and laugh out loud duo Street Comedy.

An abundance of fayre, from local producers, artists & crafts people, alongside live music, entertainers, street food and everything you need for a memorable day out with friends and family.

The Metropole Street Market is a quintessentially eccentric ensemble of all things creative and delicious!
