Markets can be found at:

- Digbeth, Walsall.
The fun starts from 10am on Saturday April 25 2009 and runs until 3.30pm.
Chris Gregory, Walsall Councilbusinessdevelopmentmanager, said: “This is a fantastic chance to come down to Walsall markets, have some fun and bag yourself a bargain whilst you are at it.
“There’s something for everyone and we’re sure that stall holders as well as shoppers will really get into the spirit of things.
“We’re even arranging for a rent reduction to stallholders who get into the swing and decorate their stalls.
“We want something really special here in Walsall which is why we have a giant dragon which I’m sure people of all ages will enjoy.
“We’ve also got Saint George himself coming along on stilts to take part in the fun.”
