Geraud Markets appointed to take over the running of Alnwick Markets

An exciting opportunity

We are pleased to confirm that Geraud Markets have been appointed by Northumberland Estates to take over the running of Alnwick Markets. Once the current Covid-19 lockdown restrictions are relaxed, we will be running a weekly market in the Market Square on a Thursday and Saturday and a monthly Farmer’s Market on the last Friday of the month.

Famous for its Castle and Gardens, Alnwick also has a starring role in the Harry Potter movies, with Alnwick Castle forming the background for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Says Scott Hamilton, Development Director of Geraud (UK) Ltd:

“We are very excited about this new opportunity in Alnwick. We already have experience of operating across the North with markets at Washington, Manchester and the Lake District. Wherever we operate we like to employ local staff and involve local businesses, and one of our first jobs will be to create the right team to get things moving.


“Working with the local community is at the heart of what we do. We have already been in talks with Alnwick Town Council and as things progress we will be contacting the organisers of other local events to see how we can support them.
