“Twice a year we host a fabulous Rag Market.”
The Rag Market is a twice yearly event run by Hebden Bridge WI to raise funds for our Charity of the year, which, this year is ‘Music for the Many’, a local Charity which aims to provide and give local school children the opportunity to learn a variety of musical instruments. It also pays for an Educational Bursary which is offered to members of the Hebden Bridge Branch in keeping with the Women’s Institute’s aims in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills.
Our Rag Market has gone from strength to strength, starting in 2012 with one room in Hebden Bridge Town Hall and around 300 visitors, we then introduced The Egg Factory as a Venue and the Rag Market has now become such a well known event that we welcomed 1200 visitors from all over Britain to our Market in April 2018. Some of the visitors spending the weekend in Hebden Bridge to enjoy all that our town has to offer.
SATURDAY 13TH APRIL 2019, 11AM – 4PM
This year we had three venues – Hebden Bridge Town Hall, Northlight and the nearby Egg Factory, where you can find more textile bargains and our ever-popular WI cake stall. There is a small entry fee which gets you into all three venues and the proceeds fund our educational bursary, our WI speakers and our charity of the year.
