Festive Food Market delivers more than just presents

Our popular Food Market returns next month with a festive theme and a special appearance from everyone’s favourite Christmas visitor.

On Sunday 13th December up to fifteen local and regional businesses including producers of fine meats and cheese, beer and spirits and an array of sweet treats will be sampling their produce and sharing Christmas recipe tips and ideas for the big day.

Along with the chance to sample the very best in local artisan produce, families and younger visitors will have the opportunity to visit Santa in his cabin in the courtyard and take part in special Christmas crafts.  New for this year, Millom based Holborn Hill Royal Brass Band Juniors will be entertaining the crowds in true traditional style between 11am and 1pm. 

Holker Hall, Head of Visitor Services Jillian Rouse comments “Our Food Markets have become a very popular addition to Holker events calendar. We aim to showcase some of the regions finest artisan producers and visitors welcome the opportunity to speak to them first hand to pick up on top tips and ideas for the Festive season”.

With free entry and parking, the Holker Food Market is open from 10.30am until mid afternoon.  The Courtyard Café, Holker Gift Shop and Food Hall will be open from 10.30am to 4.00pm.

Christmas craft activities take place in The Burlington Room (adjacent to the Café) between 10.30am – 12.30pm and 1pm – 3pm and cost £2.75 per child.

Santa will be welcoming visitors to his ‘cabin in the courtyard’ from 10.30am – 11.15am, 11.45am – 12.30pm and 1pm – 2pm.  A visit to meet Santa costs £2.75 per child to include a small gift.

“There will be something for the whole family to enjoy.” added Jillian.  “We are particularly looking forward to the sound of the brass band echoing out across the Courtyard which I’m sure will put all our visitors in the best Festive spirit”.
