THE doors of Burton’s Market Hall will be thrown open tomorrow for the first time in almost a year.

A host of activities will be taking place to mark the occasion, beginning with the cutting of the ribbon by East Staffordshire mayor Councillor Ron Clarke.

The site, off the Market Place, has undergone a £1.6 million refurbishment in the past 10 months, which has seen the dilapidated hall modernised and improved for traders and customers.

A lift has been put in place, as well as a new mezzanine floor for restaurants and other eateries.

Around half of the stalls inside have been let in advance of the opening, but East Staffordshire Borough Council, which runs the hall, is confident more people will come forward once it gets off the ground.

The historic building will officially open at 10am, and activities will run throughout the day.

Attractions announced in advance include a family fun fair, a live broadcast from Touch FM, a brass band, free face painting, dance events and appearances from Billy Brewer.
