All Good in the Hudd – next phase of the Alternative Market Project
Huddersfield’s most creative young entrepreneurs are getting extra help from local businesses as part of the Alternative Market project.
They have been given training by local experts on various aspects of retail including: product design, merchandising, and project management.
They recently learnt about marketing from local experts and business owners Katrina Cliffe from KC Communications and Ellie MacDonald from MacComms PR and Marketing Consultancy.
The young people on the programme, who are aged from 16-29 will be opening their own shop – called All Good in the Hudd.
The shop will be in the town centre over the bank holiday weekend at the end of May.
They will be selling clothing, accessories, homeware and art.
Lucy Bye, Kirklees Council Enterprise Project Manager, said:
“Your Alternative Market is a programme to get young people working together and learning work related skills to set up a shop in Huddersfield Town Centre – ultimately to make them more employable.
“Businesses and individuals have been incredibly supportive of the programme and feel that work needs to be done to ensure that young people are getting the help they need to give them practical work skills to help them get a job.
“The Alternative Market is now well established and has regular traders and shoppers. This next phase will see a different group of young people learning a wider range of skills as they open their own shop for the weekend.”
All Good in the Hudd will be open from 28 to 30 May, in the Kingsgate Shopping Centre, Huddersfield.
