A festive feast for shoppers

Shoppers in a busy market surrounded by buildings

Published Monday, 25 November 2019

A Sunday food and craft market offering a selection of hot and cold food plus crafts, collectibles and gifts will be returning to Market Place, Hinckley on Sunday 15 December from 10.30am until 4pm.

For the first time this year visitors will be treated to live music while they browse the stalls, courtesy of Hinckley’s popular live band 4th Avenue who will be performing festive favourites in front of the Christmas tree. 

There will be 40 stallholders including street foods, warming mulled wine and cider, crafts, gifts, collectibles and more plus live music, Santa on stilts and entertainment from Fosse 107.

Assistant Town Centre Manager for the Borough Council and organiser of the event John Coward said “This was a really popular event last year so this year we’ve decided to make it even bigger to encourage even more people to shop local, adding more stalls offering and all things Christmas; lights, mince pies, crafts, gifts, collectibles and Christmas music.
