Our two-day festive spectacular returns this November with stalls of unique gifts, festive food, music, crafts and more.

It's a great way to pick up some unique, handcrafted Christmas presents made in the North East. There will be entertainment for all the family and delicious festive food in the Sill cafe. We will also be running some Christmas-themed workshops - making willow stars or Christmas decorations ( book in advance, charges apply) and will have free food and drink tastings for customers plus the chance to win a Christmas hamper filled with local products.
