Once again it's that time of year, gird up your loins and give those punters at the Market a seasonal blast they’ll never forget! Rambling Sid Rumpo ( Kenneth Williams)
The 120 exhibitor stalls for this year were completely booked up before Christmas last year with similar large numbers of visitors over both days. Our CDs have been, and are, selling steadily throughout the year in the museum shop, and on the day we can sell them at our performances.
As at last year's Christmas Market we have been invited to sing traditional songs and carols around the Gridshell @ 1.00 to 1.30pm (gather outside by 12.45pm), and at the Music Tent in the Market Square (by the hot chestnuts!) @ 3.15 to 4.00pm. The site is open from 10.00am and there will be long traffic queues to get in, so get there early if you don’t want to be stuck in a traffic jam.
Fast track the entry queues by showing your wristbands at the Friends kiosk on entering from the overflow car park (you don’t have to wear them on your wrist).
The song list is below for both sets, and wear something seasonal in whatever form you fancy on the day!
