Old Glossop will be transformed into a Victorian Christmas Fayre next month.

Held between 1-6pm on Sunday, December 5, highlights will include carol singing round the Christmas tree at the Old Cross.

Dave Scanlon, Chair of Old Glossop Residents’ Association, said: “We’re delighted to be staging the event after a Covid-induced break. 

“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 local pubs plus vegetarian café Shepley’s, will also have food and drink on offer.

“Visitors will also be able to enjoy the peal of bells from Glossop Parish Church.”

Staged by Old Glossop Residents Association (OGRA), half the proceeds will go to Glossop Mountain Rescue. Entry to the event is one penny and this will be collected by and donated to 3rd Glossop Scouts.

Church Street South will be closed to traffic between 8.30am-6pm on the day.
