Growing numbers are flocking to Leicester Print Workshop’s monthly market

By William Delahunty

Leicester Print Workshop once again opened its doors last Friday(MAY26) to the public to host the monthly night market. 

The small venue was open from 6pm until 10pm and accommodated several small artisanal businesses looking to sell their unique goods. 

Marketgoer Katie Murphy said: “It is really important to support and maintain small creative businesses because it helps to add variety into our lives and give us that special kind of cultural twist.” 

Got Enough Books, the organiser of the event, aims to showcase the creative genius from across the region. 

This monthly instalment of the event saw greater numbers of people engaged in the sale and as we move into the warmer and brighter months these numbers are expected to grow even further. 

“I will definitely be going more regularly,” added Katie, “the cultural quarter of Leicester really helps show a different narrative of Leicester… the murals are a great backdrop for events like this.

“The atmosphere that the Print Workshop has created is definitely unique and made for a really different sort of day out.” 

Another attendee, Lewis Walker, said: “It was kind of small for how many stalls and people there are.

“The books and jewellery was on the expensive side but plenty of people were buying them, I wanted a shirt, but they sold out of my size for the design that I wanted.” 

The small businesses, which the Leicester Print Workshop have worked with to put on this event, sold a large amount of custom-made stock.

With growing popularity, it seems that within the months to come the print workshop may attract an even larger following.
