The Christmas Market is open and the town is lit up with the traditional Christmas tree taking centre stage in the Market Place.
Thank you to Melton BID and Melton Mowbray Town Estate for putting on such a great event.
The Mayor and Mayoress have been in town this morning talking to some of the wonderful stall holders. There are festive gifts, local produce and hand crafted wares amongst our local shops and entertainment all weekend.
The Melton Mowbray Christmas Market will open over the weekend from 10am until 4pm.
Santa will be in his Grotto in the Market Place over the Christmas Weekend, open 10am to 4pm on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December.
The Bubble Wizard will be returning to the town centre, a master at bubbles suitable for every age to provide great family entertainment over the weekend. The Bubble Wizard can create the biggest and most dramatic bubble effects such as people inside bubbles, giant bubbles, clouds of billions of bubbles and bubbles inside bubbles!
There will also be live music and entertainment throughout the weekend, including vintage vocalist and entertainer Miss Lily Love-Joy, music and dancing from Want2Dance and performances from the Rock Choir. Not to mention Morris dancing, alpacas, shire horses and birds of prey.
This year you’ll also be able to enjoy the thrill of the fair, with our new Winter Fair in the town park open for family fun and entertainment.
Don’t forget to visit the Christmas Trees @ St Marys too, which will be held in St Mary’s Church from Wednesday 1st December to Wednesday 8th December, with another magical display of Christmas trees.
So, whether you are planning to meet friends, bring the family, start your shopping or just enjoy the atmosphere, there’s something for everyone at this year’s Melton Mowbray Christmas Weekend.
