Health and Wellbeing

Fancy learning a new skill?
How about cooking a meal from scratch using ingredients bought from the market with hints and tips for healthy eating provided by an NHS nutritionist. Cook at the market is an idea we have used before and if you think you could benefit from this idea, let us know.



Calling all local producers

From chutneys to chilli sauce, cup-cakes to crusty bread if you produce locally and want or need somewhere to show case your products or test trade, get in touch and let’s see how we might be able to help each other.



Cultural Beginnings

If you’re looking for your next crafty project, why not visit our lovely Sew Fabrics stall, where you can grab everything you need for your project! Our talented stall-holders can also give you inspiration and tips if you’re not quite sure how to start.

‘If music be the food of love…….’

We are keen to give singers a chance, and mime artists, and card trick magicians and even live statues! We know Darlo isn’t Downtown New York, but helping local, vocal creative talent find (and hopefully entertain) an audience is something we want to do. If you think you have the Darlington factor, send us a demo and we can go from there!
