A UNIQUE opportunity is on offer for designer-makers and producers in Shropshire.

The Shropshire Growth Hub, in partnership with the Darwin Shopping Centre, is offering eight Shropshire designer-makers and producers the opportunity to be part of the Shropshire Artisan Showcase in April.

This fully-funded opportunity is designed to give artisanal businesses free pop-up retail space during the event, and the successful businesses will also benefit from free retail, sales, and marketing workshops in the lead-up to the pop-up event, delivered by Buy-From Creative Agency.

Speaking on behalf of the Shropshire Growth Hub, Anna Sadler said: "We are so excited to be able to offer this unique opportunity to eight creative Shropshire businesses.

"Being able to back up the retail opportunity with free training as well, means that this is an opportunity that lasts four months, and will hopefully leave a genuine legacy of success and growth for the businesses who take part."

The Shropshire Artisan Showcase at Darwin Shopping Centre will take place from April 15 to 20, 2024.
