Thanks to the wonderful Linda Mason for the tipoff – it seems that starting in a few weeks – on Sunday, 4th May 2014 – there’s to be a new Craft and Farmers Market staged as a regular event at Chasewater.
This is really great news, and I’m looking forward to checking it out.
There seems to be a fair bit online about it, but there seems to have been very little local publicity, and it doesn’t seem to have been mentioned on the official Chasewater Facebook page. The event is being staged by a company called Bohemian Bunty, and will take place on the first Sunday of every month.
You can visit the event Facebook Page here.

Great news, thank you for sharing!
Thankyou Brownhills Bob. Thankyou for promoting the market. Unfortunately we have very little budget to play with for advertising, we have secured a banner on the entrance of Chasewater, if you are aware of any funding to promote our small businesses were happy for any advice or avenues. Were a small business promoting small businesses. We have had a small amount of flyers and posters have gone up around Burntwood, Brownhills West wilkin estate, cafes up and down the high street, Norton Canes and Lichfield. Unfortunately not every one was keen to put our posters up. We have got other signage coming from my friends business who has happily stepped in to help out. Thankyou so much for this. Hope to see you on the 4th.
The Bohemian Bunty
