Newark Christmas Market and Winter Feast to take over the Market Place this weekend




A Christmas market will offer lots to feast on this weekend.

The Newark Christmas Market and Winter Feast is to take over the Market Place on Saturday and Sunday, with plenty to do and see to get everyone into the festive spirit.

The annual festival, which saw its best footfall in the town at last year’s event, will take place from 10am to 4pm on both days.

Newark Town Council is running the weekend, and clerk Alan Mellor said the event was already proving to be a success already as market stalls had been sold out.

“On the stalls we have our usual traders and some new ones, all offering something for Christmas shopping,” said Mr Mellor.

“It should be an event not to miss.”

The weekend will include a Christmas market, including festive food and drink, carol singing, local bands, and street entertainment.

Mr Mellor said: “There will be people coming with families, so there will be entertainment for all and catering for a wide range of ages and tastes.”

There will also be gifts and crafts, and an array of classic cars.

Santas were due to be dashing on the Saturday — in aid of Beaumond House and the Children’s Bereavement Centre ­— but this has now been cancelled.

Mr Mellor said the decision to cancel the dash was because of late planning.

“We have cancelled it for this year but with forward planning, we hope to put it on again in the future.”

Members of the public can also take advantage of free council carparking.
