Nothing beats the feeling of festive merriment from walking through a Christmas Market; soaking up the atmosphere and knowing that every purchase makes a difference to a local small business. This is even better if you know that the market is doing its best to raise money and awareness of an important local charity too.
On Saturday 25 November, Grimsby Top Town Market will host local independent traders for its Christmas Market in aid of St Andrew’s Hospice.
The Christmas Market will open from 10am-4pm with small businesses selling delightful one-of-a-kind gifts for even the trickiest to buy for, including bespoke jewellery and beads, natural bath treats and Neal’s Yard remedies, decorations for the home, gifts for book lovers, beautiful handmade backpacks, hand painted ornaments and so much more!
As always, shoppers are sure to find porcelain and china figurines, bath bombs and wax melts, books, electricals and clothing from the market’s regular traders as well as being able to wrap their gifts and tie them with a bow and settle down for a festive bite to eat and hot drink as a reward for their successes.
Shoppers can extend their day of festive fun by visiting The Great Grimsby Christmas Festival which promises an outdoor Christmas market featuring seasonal crafts and gifts alongside delicious hot food stalls in St James Square against the magnificent backdrop of Grimsby Minster. There will also be live music and entertainment on the event stage plus walkabout street entertainers and performance acts for the whole family to enjoy throughout the day from 12 noon, finishing with a parade and the Community Christmas Tree Lighting at approximately 5pm.
Vikki Wilson, Property Services Manager at Equans who operate Grimsby Top Town Market said “We are really looking forward to partnering with St Andrew’s Hospice again to host this special Christmas Market.
Welcoming these small businesses to the market with their beautiful and far-ranging products will make sure that there really is something for everyone. It’s a perfect way to support local businesses and give back to the community as well as directing funds to the hospice.
We are delighted that the Great Grimsby Christmas Festival is taking place on the same day – together these events promise something special for shoppers in North East Lincolnshire to kick off the festive season.”
