What can we do at the market!?
Well, aside from the 100 or so stalls, 2018 boasts a new kids zone for our younger visitors – please visit the kids zone page for more info. We also have (weather permitting) a horse and carriage offering rides around the village (fee applies). the Blood Bikes return for another year with their charity stand and unless the weather is very unkind we will also have some classic cars on display.
The Heritage rooms are home to a number of local groups who will be offering demonstrations and showcasing their work in the main hall.
The lovely Jess will be hosting have a go wreath making workshops throughout the day in the Butcher and Beast marquee… pop along to make your own wicker wreath or festive shape with winter foliage for only £4!
LIVE MUSIC – located within our new street food area, 2018 sees the return of a stage. Situated outside the Jubilee Hall, the Branston Potatoes stage (kindly on loan!) will feature local musicians playing 15/20 minute sets, along with our wonderful carollers who return for another year. Times for the stage will be announced on here and on Facebook closer to the time when slots are filled, and also on boards around the market itself; if you would like to play at the market please let us know by emailing us!
