OVERBURY’S ANNUAL STREET MARKET – 32 years old this year!
July has come around again and the people of Overbury, situated just north of Tewkesbury, are busy preparing for the major event of their Summer calendar.  The 32nd annual Street Market, which attracts visitors from all over the area, will be held in the beautiful Bredon Hill village on Saturday 10th July.

The market takes place between 10am and 12 noon against a picturesque backdrop of stone cottages, St Faith’s Church (dating back to Norman times) and the 18th century Overbury Court.     

During a hectic two hours, there will be opportunities to pick up unusually high quality bargains.  As well as a range of farm and home produced produce, stalls this year feature gifts, handbags,  plants, flowers, CDs, computer games and DVDs/videos, cards and jewellery – plus books, toys and ‘Going for a Song’.   Local potter Toff Milway will also be demonstrating his craft.

Friends of Overbury School are arranging fun activities for children. In addition, there is live music, Whitcombe Garden (a member of the National Gardens Scheme) is open for wandering and relaxation, there are magnificent raffle prizes to be won – not to mention a range of refreshments (we’ll even sell you a hot bacon or sausage buttie while you wait for the Market to open!) and car parking and entry are both free.    

What more could you want!

If very wet, the market will take place in the Village Hall.
