Christmas market will bring festive cheer to Keswick

16 December 2015

A Sunday market is to be held in Keswick this weekend to bring some festive cheer to the town.

Allerdale Borough Council and its market operator, Geraud Markets Ltd, are organising the event on Sunday 20 December to tie with the town’s Live Advent Calendar and a visit from Santa.

The weather has forced the cancellation of the town’s Victorian Fayre and two Saturday markets in recent weeks, so the aim is to bring more visitors to the town so they can shop local for their final Christmas presents and food. Charities will also be able to book a stall for free.

The Live Advent Calendar event that day has been titled Santa Paws and Santa Claus. A ‘doggy’ Santa’s Grotto will be in place at Podgy Paws pet shop, from 1pm to 5pm, where the special window will be lit at 4pm. Pack Horse Court will also be hosting a more traditional grotto for children in the early afternoon. There will also be music from the Committed to Rock band at 2pm.

Any charities which are interested in taking a stall should contact Phil Byers from Geraud Markets Ltd on 07753934540. All Geraud’s profits from the market will go to Cumbria’s Flood Recovery Fund.

Anyone who has been affected by the floods who needs help and support can email the Council’s Customer Services officers direct on or call 01900 702 701. There is also information available from the Council’s website on .
