kettering's BIG Christmas Market
Published Friday, 03 December 2010
Following the success of Kettering's Arts Markets in the summer, the award winning Market Place hosts the Big Christmas Market.
The market is aimed at family Christmas shoppers and will provide an excellent opportunity for local artists, craftspeople and local food producers to sell their wares in this delightful open-air setting. There will be musical entertainment, refreshments and festive fun.
With a view to creating a diverse and exciting market, pitches are being offered at a very competitive rate of £10. No experience is required- all pitches come with a covered stall and table. The intention is to attract a wide and diverse range of stalls to offer a bit of Christmas sparkle. Organised by Kettering Borough Council and Hughmark the Big Christmas Market takes place on 12 December between 10am and 1pm. It is an exciting addition to an already packed programme of events and entertainment organised by Kettering Borough Council in the run up to Christmas.
Valerie Hitchman, Head of Community Services, Kettering Borough Council said
"We are really pleased to be able to offer such a variety of different events and activities on the Market Place over the festive period. This Christmas Market offers local people the chance buy locally made products."
Councillor Mark Dearing, Portfolio holder for retail and business, Kettering Borough Council said
"This is a fantastic opportunity for new or smaller local craftspeople and businesses to try their hand at selling their wares from a market stall - who knows they could end up the shop keepers of the future"
