Welcome the bank holiday weekend with a new generation of traders as the New Youthquake takes over Portobello Market and Tavistock Square.
From 10am-7pm on Saturday, 27 May and 12pm-7pm on Sunday, 28 May, some of West London’s most creative and entrepreneurial young people will be pitching up with food, fashion, art, homewares and more, as well as live music performances from 12pm-5pm.
New Youthquake is part of the national Love Your Local Market celebrations in Kensington and Chelsea where the focus is on youth culture. Portobello and Golborne Road Market is taking inspiration from ‘Youthquake’, a term coined by British Vogue editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland in 1965 to describe a London-centred movement of youth-led music and fashion. New Youthquake aims to re-kindle and expand on that movement by giving opportunities to West London’s young business minds and creative talent.
And New Youthquake doesn’t stop at this weekend! There are a whole host of activities and events including the Love Your Local Market 16-25 video competition with a showing at the Portobello Film Festival as the prize for the winner. For more information, and to enter, please visit the Portobello and Golborne Markets website.
