Traders are currently being sought for Northampton Market’s Frost Fair on Sunday 1 December.
Taking place between 11am and 4pm, the Christmas themed market helps to provide a festive showcase of the town’s local producers and crafters during December’s busy shopping period.
This year, the organisers have teamed up with Vintage Guru on St Giles Street to help grow the event and better celebrate the town’s creative makers and artists.
The market is part of wider Christmas celebrations that day. Activities include a creative Christmas workshop at 11am, where children can make fun head dresses to take home or wear during the Narnia inspired Christmas parade at 1pm.
A choir will also add a seasonal soundtrack throughout the day and mulled wine and cider will be available from a pop-up bar for people to enjoy as they peruse stalls or listen to the live music.
Cllr Phil Larratt, Deputy Leader of Northampton Borough Council, said: “Our Frost Fair has always been a popular event within Northampton’s Christmas calendar. The unique offering and free festive entertainment are a great way to draw people into the town for shopping and food.
“Last year we attracted more than 50 stalls to the market and we look forward to working with Vintage Guru to welcome even more local craftspeople and traders to this year’s fair.”
