30th November, 1st & 2nd December 2018 10am - 4.30pm
Our annual Christmas Market, the must visit festive event in the South Lakes took place December 2017, and we're now looking forward to this year's event. All the usual YTB offerings, PLUS over 40 quality stalls join us throughout the barn and in our heated marquee selling crafts, art, food and drink. Each day we have live music with Andy Webb on the piano, and in the afternoons our regular 5 piece Jazz Band, with a guest appearance on Sunday of the Kendal Revellers!
Please keep checking the website for more details, including a list of stallholders who will be coming.
In the front courtyard we have a variety of stalls including alpacas, (yes, live ones!) John Law with his blacksmith's forge, and Harry's CafeBar outside catering doing fabulous bbq food and drinks. All the other stalls are hosted in the main marquee, and upstairs in YTB, along with our regular artisans, Gary Eccles (Furniture Restorer) Schofield & Schofield (Antiques & Vintage stall) Jolly Folke Furniture, Harry's CafeBar offered a special Christmas Market menu, which was much appreciated.
This year we introduced a new free shuttle service offering park and ride which was very useful, so will become a regular feature each year. Blue badge holders are welcome to arrive at the main gate where stewards help you park in designated spaces close by.
Please note that the Christmas Market is now established for 3 full days.
