This coming Friday 01 September, Elliot, Pop up Piano will be providing lunch time entertainment 12-2pm, said a spokesperson ‘Saffron Walden based singer-songwriter Elliot Porter blends acoustic folk tendencies with a love of words to paint pictures with his songs. He has been played on BBC Radio 2 and BBC London and also supported the likes of Alabama 3 and Toploader in his career to date’.

From 10am are Sam The Poet Man with words, colouring and dressing up – launching his new book, there will be a competition to win a copy! Also joining in the fun from 11am The Writers Room will be sharing their poetry.  Local French influenced eatery, La Boite will be in situ providing some homemade sweet and savoury delights.

Come and enjoy a coffee, take a break, eat lunch, relax and socialise.  This use of the Market Square is favoured by residents, as evidenced in SWTC’s 2022 consultation.  We look forward to seeing you there!  There is no need to book for either event, just turn up.

Organised by Saffron Walden Town Council.

The Market Square will be closed to vehicles each Friday (28th July, 04, 11, 18, 25 August and 01 September).  This is to provide café style seating, allowing for a relaxed continental feel to this beautiful space – with music performances between 12 noon and 2pm; providing the opportunity to enjoy a coffee, take a break, eat lunch, and generally relax and socialise. This use of the Market Square is favoured by residents, as evidenced in the 2022 consultation.

  • Please note that the Market Square and adjoining roads (Market Place, Market Hill, Market Street, Butchers Row and King Street) will be closed for events on these dates from 7am until 4pm.
