“Britain’s Favourite Market is a tough competition to win as it relies on the support of a public vote to get in to the final stage. I am delighted for all of the top 6 markets who have made it into the final part of the competition and I and my fellow judges look forward to visiting them before Christmas to find out for ourselves why they should be deemed as Britain’s Favourite Market 2018”. The winner will be announced at the NABMA One Day Conference in Birmingham on 25th January 2018”.
