Duke Street Market announces family fun in August

Duke Street Market is hosting a selection of one-of-a-kind events to help you entertain the little ones this summer.

Throughout August there’ll be films, pottery, painting, and more, at the city food and drink venue, to make sure the holidays aren’t filled with frowning faces.

Lee Bannon-Smith, general manager of Duke Street Market, says: “We know how hard it is to keep the little ones happy for the whole of the summer holidays and that’s why we love hosting kids events every year, providing the perfect space to enjoy a fun activity and grab a bite and a drink.

“Duke Street Market always has been – and will be – a family friendly venue.”

As well as offering a selection of kids’ dishes from its six independent kitchens, it has a dedicated kids’ corner with books and toys for children of all ages.

And Lee says: “Every holiday we love hosting kids events in our Terrace. This summer we have a selection of film screenings and crafting events and we always aim to make them as accessible as possible, and affordable, that’s why tickets start at £6 which includes sweets and soft drinks for the little ones and hot drinks and pastries for the adults for every event!”

So if you’re getting your diary ready and organising all your family days out, here’s what’s on offer at Duke Street and when:
