BUG (Ballarat Ukulele Group) Performing the Toilet Paper Song.

The Ballarat Ukulele Group have been a regular fixture at The Bridge. It is a fact that when BUG are strumming their ukuleles, it is impossible not to shop the market in sync with the rhythm.

Lyric Theatre Flash Mob for their amazing production of Les Mis in 2020

The Lyric Theatre are an amazing community group in Ballarat overflowing with talent. In the lead up to their premiere of the highly successful production of Les Mis in 2020, we were lucky to experience their voices in the round as the cast (Bridge Market Shoppers) one by one revealed their voices in a truly amazing flash mob Farmer’s market performance.

BECS (Ballarat East Community Men’s Shed)

The awesome volunteers of BECS have been sizzling snags at The Bridge Market for a long time now. They show up rain, hail or shine to provide customers new and old with a tasty bite on the go. We’re grateful for their generosity of time and effort every month. Not only are their sausages awesome value, they’re hugely popular as ever and regularly sell out, they’re often spotted helping out as market volunteers in times of need.
