“After the great success of our last Winter Market in November, we’re really keen to grow and develop our seasonal markets here at Holker.  We had record numbers attend that event and really promising feedback from both exhibitors and visitors.  Planning is well underway and we’ve had exhibitor enquiries already so we encourage businesses to get in touch early if they would like to book a stall.  The Courtyard is the perfect setting for our bustling markets and spring is one of the best times of the year to see the estate – it will be a great day out for all the family.” Jillian Rouse, Head of Visitor Services at Holker.

 

Visitors will discover a spring showcase of delicious artisanal food, glorious flowers and plants and beautiful handmade gifts alongside lively entertainment including a circus workshop.
