Meet the market organiser for St Leonards Marketplace, Anton Burton, shown in the centre of the photo above. Last year, Anton ran three successful markets for St Leonards’ Town Team – one on the day of St Leonards Festival along Kings Road, and two pre-Christmas markets in Crystal Square car park.
This year, the first of our regular weekly markets will be on Saturday 19 April – Easter Saturday – in Crystal Square car park. Each week there will be themed entertainment, thanks to a Community First grant. HOT’s Erica Smith wanted to know what Anton has lined up for us when the market re-opens this Spring.
When asked about the entertainments, Anton said: “On Easter Saturday we will have a petting zoo for children and we’re planning an Easter Egg hunt around the local shops and traders. We also want to have dance and exercise displays from local groups like Egyptian Dancers and a Bokwa flash mob!
