Duxford Advent Market 2019
December 7 at 4:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
As well as over 20 quality craft stalls there’ll be delicious hot food from the Duxford Hogroast Company and the chance to warm up with a measure of authentic glühwein (mulled wine), or Gløg, the Scandinavian (and non-alcoholic) alternative, served in our own special advent market mugs.
Father Christmas will be visiting as usual and will be assisted by his magical story-teller to keep the children entertained. Meanwhile Mum and Dad can take a break to browse the stalls and stock up on Christmassy food and stocking fillers of every kind. From classy necklaces to glitzy decorations, artisan foods, toys, chocolate and amazing gin, it’s all there, along with gift wraps, ribbons and cards. Winners of the raffle will walk away with fabulous prizes, the star of which this year is an amazing ride-on red fire engine.
Kindly sponsored by local businesses, the Advent Market began in 2011 to give local people an opportunity brave the December chill and get into the Christmas spirit together with family, friends and neighbours.
This year the proceeds have bought a set of folding chairs to support the increasing number of events now held in St Johns, and have funded an educational grant to help disadvantaged children at Duxford School.
