Evening shopping and festive food fair for Accrington

On Thursday 25 November, Accrington’s beautiful market hall will stay open late for an evening Christmas shopping event. From 4.00-9.00PM, visitors will be able to shop, drink and dine while getting in the festive mood.

There will be free children’s activities to enjoy and over 50 stalls for customers to browse, with handmade gifts and delicious treats to eat.

Many indoor market favourites will be staying open later to welcome seasonal shoppers, while new popup stalls confirmed for the event include Boos Bakery, Pretty Little Flame and Mia Jade Bakes.

Following the success of the August Bank Holiday Bash evening opening, shoppers and stallholders are looking forward to the event.

Market manager Sameena King commented:

‘We know some people will say Christmas can’t start in November but we wanted to give people the chance to get in the mood early. After a difficult year for many, starting on your seasonal shopping or simply sampling some delicious food are things we’re happy to make available.

‘Welcoming people to an event of this type is a great way to stay involved with our community and support local businesses.’

There are still spaces available for potential traders and pop up stallholders looking to get in the festive spirit and reach new customers, please email markets@hyndburnbc.gov.uk.
