Teenagers across the country are hitting back at a reputation for lie-ins and laziness by launching businesses, thanks to a scheme masterminded by two brothers from Stockport.
The Teenage Market, a free initiative that enables youngsters to showcase their talents, has been given the go-ahead to roll out in cities nationwide after Joe, 20, and Tom Barratt, 18, put their plans for expansion forward to UK town and city trading managers at a recent local markets conference.
The duo are already responsible for a vibrant market in their hometown, which provides a platform for young creatives, painters, fashion designers, jewellery makers, graffiti artists, photographers, graphic designers, bakers, poets, comedians, musicians, singers, dancers and performers, to sell or display their skills for free.
