The heart of Old Glossop will be transformed once again into the wonderland that is the Christmas Market, on Sunday, 3rd December 2023 from 1pm to 5pm.
Highlights include carol singing round the centrepiece of the Christmas tree at the Old Cross – as well as the chance to see Father Christmas on his sleigh, courtesy of Glossop Mountain Rescue.
Janet Bingham from Old Glossop Residents Association said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors. With 32 stalls selling traditional crafts, handmade Christmas gifts, local produce, mulled wine and hot food - there’s something for everyone!”
Traditional Christmas music will be on offer from school children of All Saints School, Dark Peak Music and Glossop Choral Society. The Milltown Cloggies will also be performing. All three local pubs – the Queen’s, the Bull’s Head and the Wheatsheaf – plus vegetarian café Shepley’s, will have food and drink on offer.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy the peal of bells from Glossop Parish Church to mark the opening of the market, and the church will be open for refreshments, too.
Janet added: “We’re grateful to our local councillors and businesses for their support.”
Staged by Old Glossop Residents Association (OGRA), Proceeds will go to Glossop Mountain Rescue, 3rd Glossop Scouts and to OGRA for the benefit of older residents and community events. Entry to the event is one penny – to meet licensing requirements.
Church Street South will be closed to traffic between 8.30am-6pm on the day.
