No More Worcester Flea Dates

It can now be confirmed that the Worcester Flea is to end. There will be no more dates at Angel Place.

No suitable, affordable alternative venue was provided for the Worcester Flea during the Angel Place renovations.

CrownGate Market has now been taken over by a new promotions company who will be putting on their own markets. No further information has been given to us.

All that remains is to thank everyone who has supported our little, friendly market over the last few years and to all the super traders who have joined us!

Photos of all the previous Worcester Flea markets will still be on the Facebook page, in the albums on

August's Worcester Flea - Our Third Birthday & Possibly Our Last?!

Thanks to everyone who came to The Worcester Flea on Sunday, it was the perfect 3rd birthday! We had lots of really great stalls with lovely items on offer, it was sunny and packed with visitors all day, hurrah!

All the photos of the day are now on our Facebook page HERE. Many of our lovely traders have their own Facebook pages, shops, and attend or organise other events - so do check out where to find them through their page links in the photos on Facebook.

The future of the Worcester Flea is still uncertain. This will be our last date on the old CrownGate Market. Due to the timing of the renovation to Angel Place it may not be possible to continue the Flea elsewhere, even when we're finally informed of an alternative market space that is apparently being provided. We also don't know what the plans are for the new market area until it's finished, so sadly we've been completely left in limbo.

If we are able to continue it will be posted on here and on our Facebook page.

In the meantime, thanks to everyone who has supported our little market over the three years! It's a tiny, DIY enterprise with no big budgets and no outside support, just trying to bring something nice and interesting to Worcester, which I think we achieved thanks to the regular support from great traders and customers. Thank you!

The Worcester Flea is Three & Some News!

The Worcester Flea celebrates three years of existing this Sunday 3rd August from 10.30am-4.30pm at CrownGate Market, Angel Place.

It'll be a busy one with over twenty traders selling a great mix of vintage, handmade and upcycled goodies. See our Facebook page with news of the traders who will be joining us at

We've also just found out that the market area on Angel Place is being renovated starting in early September, so unfortunately the August Flea will be the last Worcester Flea at Angel Place for the rest of the year.

We've yet to receive information about a temporary, alternative market space but at the moment it's looking as though the Flea will be put on hold after August, until further notice.

More information will be posted here and on Facebook as soon as it can be confirmed.

Thank you to everyone who's supported the Worcester Flea over the past three years!
