The Frome Independent returns!

AFTER a year and a half in hibernation, The Frome Independent will be back on Sunday 5th September. 

Having tested out an understated return last month with their capsule event, A Little Night Market, the team are now gearing up to a town-wide event.   

“For the uninitiated, The Frome independent takes place across the whole of Frome town centre, and is a celebration of contemporary craft, vintage finds, local produce and independent businesses from Frome and the southwest,” say the organisers. 

“While times have been tough for everyone over the past year and a half, craftspeople, food producers and those working in creative industries have shown incredible resilience in adapting their businesses to lockdown life.  

“However, The Frome Independent has always been about championing the personal connection between customer and producer and is a place where customers can meet the makers, food producers and flea traders that are passionate about what they do.  

“Visitors can expect to find everything from  jewellery to cheeses; traditional ironwork alongside vegan brownies; plus an array of vintage treasures and delicious locally made street food. There’s live music too, with the return of the Market Place stage, and down in the Market Yard, visitors can rediscover the astro-turf utopia that is The Village Green, where Donna Somerset, Frome’s Vintage Mobile Disco, will be spinning tunes throughout the day.” 

The Frome Independent is free to attend, but the organisers are encouraging visitors to adhere to covid safety advice which is: 

• Take a free lateral flow test before attending and staying at home is the result is positive. 

• Staying at home if they have any symptoms or have come into contact with someone who has the virus.  

• Respecting the distance of others, and making use of hand sanitizing stations  

The Frome Independent takes place on Sunday 5th September from 10am – 3pm in Frome. Admission is free. For full visitor information, please visit www .thefromeindependent.org.uk
