Pitch Perfect


Market Place have launched their Pitch Perfect competition. Winners of the competition will win the opportunity to trade for FREE at one this year’s markets, in Belfast, Harrogate OR Cheltenham, along with business mentoring and PR support from the Market Place team.

The festive markets, which open in Cheltenham and Belfast on 20 November and Harrogate on 03 December, are set to attract thousands of visitors throughout their duration, offering an amazing platform for new businesses to promote themselves.

The Pitch Perfect competition, offers sponsorship for young local businesses, providing them with an invaluable opportunity to showcase their product(s) to new audiences and is open to businesses that have been trading for over six months but for less than two years.

Market Place Managing Director, Allan Hartwell said:

“The Pitch Perfect competition is a great way for us to support new local businesses and we are delighted to offer this kind of support each year.

For the winners this is always a steep learning-curve and we are here to support them all the way with practical business advice. Pitch Perfect can be a great way to fast track business development and growth. We have no doubt that trading at one of our Christmas Market in 2021 will provide a very solid foundation for the winner’s business success.”

The competition, which has a simple two-page application process, is open for applications until 26 October 2021.
