Jillian Rouse, Head of Visitor services says that the event is now fully booked, “We’re absolutely delighted with the level of interest in this new event here at Holker. We were getting enquiries a few hours after announcing the date which was very encouraging and we now have a fantastic selection of businesses and producers confirmed for the two days.
“There is a varied mix of stalls and produce on offer from jewellery and art, to plants and cakes and we also have live entertainment from local swing/jazz singer and guitarist Andy Reay.
“Our Winter Market last year was so popular that we’ve added in more space to wander through the market and more seating for people to relax and enjoy the atmosphere or a bite to eat.”
