By Royal Charter, Monday is the town's traditional market day with a wide variety of good quality produce and goods available weekly.  This is one of the oldest markets in England and one of the busiest.  This market takes place every Monday* from 8.00am to 3.00pm in the Market Place, whatever the weather.  

Families love the Abbey Meadow which provides a safe environment for youngsters to enjoy a high quality play area. In the Summer weekends and holidays there is water fun on a hot day. Parents can relax at the side and watch the screaming and the giggling as the kids run around the spray fountains. With the play area alongside it makes a day of fun that will keep the kids busy in the holiday without breaking the bank.

Pets have to be kept out of the play areas, responsible dog owners are welcome on the open meadows

The Unicorn Theatre is inside a multi-phase stone-built structure inserted lengthwise into a space between two earlier buildings, the Checker of about 1260 to the east and the abbey barn (later bakehouse) to the west. Sometimes known as the Checker Hall, its roof is butted against the two existing gable walls at either end. It was rebuilt with an impressive roof in the fifteenth century, probably for domestic use.
