Stepping back in time

The heart of Old Glossop will once again be transformed into the village’s annual Victorian Christmas market on Sunday.

Taking place from 1.30pm to 5.30pm, the highlights will include a lantern parade, carol singing and dressing the Christmas tree on Old Cross by local school children.

Of course Father Christmas will be there on his sleigh, courtesy of Glossop Mountain Rescue.

With 36 stalls selling traditional crafts, handmade Christmas gifts, local produce and ales, mulled wine and hot food, there’s something for everyone.

Traditional Christmas music will be on offer from Dark Peak Music and Glossop Choral Society – and Milltown Cloggies will be performing. 

 All three village pubs – the Queen’s, the Bull’s Head and the Wheatsheaf – plus vegetarian café Shepley’s, will also have food and drink on offer.

Visitors will be able to enjoy the peal of bells from Glossop Parish Church where refreshments and music will be available. 

Staged by Old Glossop Residents’ Association (OGRA), half the proceeds will go to Glossop Mountain Rescue. 

Entry to the event is one penny – to meet licensing requirements – and this will be collected by and donated to 3rd Glossop Scouts.

Church Street South will be closed to traffic between 9am-6pm on the day.
