We’re here to stay

30 April, 2015

Old Bus Depot Markets stallholders and visitorsYou know where our home is, in the wonderful heritage listed Old Bus Depot. And the good news is, we’re here to stay!

Late last month we signed a long term lease which means we have security to continue running our markets as a major part of the Kingston Foreshore arts and culture precinct going forward. The occasion was marked with the signing of a ceremonial certificate by the ACT Chief Minister and Minister for Tourism, Andrew Barr MLA, together with our markets’ directors, Morna Whiting and Diane Hinds on 22 April. We are thrilled to have secured this long term lease.

Over the past 20 years we have played a major role in Canberra’s tourism and heritage landscape, and we are grateful that with the ACT Government’s continued support and assistance to sign our first long term lease, that we can also continue our role as a genuine business incubator in Canberra. We hope to see you down at the Old Bus Depot soon!
