Light Switch on and Three Day Festive Markets at Holmes Mill

The hugely popular seasonal gathering will take place on Friday 29th November, Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December.

The winter markets will showcase an exclusive mix of exhibitors, a varied lineup of live music, artisan foods, delicious street food, product demos and tasters from the Food Hall’s local producers, plus a spectacular Christmas tree light switch on by Holmes Mill on the Friday evening.

Over the years it has become the ultimate festive experience and the market is laden with handmade gorgeous gifts, trinkets, treasures and treats, all of which are locally produced and provide the opportunity to shop local and support independent businesses in the build up to Christmas. 

Owner of Crafty Vintage, Laura Johnson said “Over the years this hugely popular event has been a fantastic success at the mill, it seemed a natural progression to have it over three days this year and to develop a larger event. We cannot wait to welcome people back to our festive markets. We know that our makers, creators and collectors have been working around the clock to bring together an amazing array of spectacular seasonal gifts.”

It’s free entry to the indoor market on Sunday but it is advisable to book a ticket as it gets pretty busy in the Cotton Room and priority is given to ticket holders at peak times.
