If you fancy going to see what the area around the Corn Exchange looks like now after all the regeneration work has been done tomorrow is a good time to go:
There’s an event celebrating the launch of the Corn Exchange’s new surroundings. It’s at the Corn Exchange from 11am – 4pm and there’s a variety of entertainment, including:
🎵 Live music
💃 Dance performances
🎭 Street entertainers
🎨 Children’s face painting
And much more
Nearly 1,750 square metres of public realm has been created outside the Corn Exchange by upgrading two existing pedestrian areas and removing the stretch of Call Lane that runs between New Market Street and Crown Street. New seating, trees and sandstone paving are among the design features contributing to the welcoming nature of an accessible space that can be enjoyed day-to-day by shoppers, workers, local residents and visitors alike.
