Dickensian Christmas Market & Craft Fayre

RAISING MONEY FOR: SENIORS' COMMUNITY PARTY

Wetherby went back in time to a bygone era on Sunday 8th December 2019
- hopefully we'll be back again on 13th December 2020

Wetherby town centre became a hive of activity on Sunday 8th December when the long-established annual Dickensian Christmas Market and Craft Fayre took pride of place.

The increasingly popular event was up against it weather-wise yet still thrilled the crowds with its multiple festive attractions and vast array of produce and crafts on sale.  Organisers, Wetherby District Lions Club, saw the Market Place packed with local food and drink traders, including regulars from the monthly Farmers’ Market, and were pleased to witness very brisk trade alongside the Craft Fayre event in the Town Hall.  

The event, beginning at 9.00 am, was officially opened an hour later by ITV Calendar presenter Duncan Wood and Wetherby Town Mayor Galan Moss.  Santa arrived after the short speeches to the delight of the long queues of families and their children who formed outside his 'spanking new' seasonally decorated grotto.  Another major attraction was Casper and Rollo, the two Alpacas from Elmet Alpacas in Sherburn, who helped Santa's reindeer by coming along in their place.

Throughout the day festive music was provided by Tewit Silver Band, Collingham Wind Band, Wetherby Musical Theatre Group Choir and the school choirs of Deighton Gates and Crossley Street with many local charities having stalls at the Market displaying their local festive wares. 

“We work hard to make the Dickensian Christmas Market the one event that really brings Wetherby people of all ages together in the most festive setting, “says Wetherby Lions President, Tim Ritson.  “This year’s event did not disappoint and proved what a great community we have in Wetherby, and how well they support local causes.”  

Wetherby Lions also presented their annual 'Wetherby Townsperson of the Year Award' at the event; the winner was Simon Donkin.   Go to our webpage here to vote for next year’s recipient.
