RUN by Balbriggan Creative Quarter, the market will feature an exciting mix of local crafts, up-cycled goods, live music and family entertainment.
A centrepiece of the market will be a photographic exhibition, titled 'Back to The Future 'and will highlight old photos from the Benton/Curtis Collection.
The Benton/Curtis collection is a hugely valuable archive to the town of Balbriggan, containing photographs going back to the beginning of the last century. The particular photographs selected for this exhibition will be displayed side by side with contemporary photographs of the same scenes, taken by local photographers Kasia Wasiak and Robert Patynski.
BCQ Chairman, Tony Murphy said: 'This is a fantastic opportunity to view a small part of this wonderful archive and of course to compare Balbriggan as it was then and how it looks today. BCQ is delighted to have this chance to curate these works and to play a role in reviving the artistic heritage of the town.' The market will be open from 12noon to 4pm.
