25th July 2014 - CHRISTMAS MARKET SET TO SELL OUT IN RECORD TIME

The third annual Harrogate Christmas Market is set to be fully booked in record time this year, with less than a quarter of places left for traders.

Almost 80% of the 200 trader spaces have been booked for the Market, which runs from Thursday, November 27 to Sunday, November 30.

The Market has a range of different stall types available, from tables in the Food & Drink Marquee to traditional outdoor market stalls, as well as wooden chalets. Some types of stall have proved particularly popular, such as those in the Craft & Gift Marquee, where only a handful of spaces remain.

Brian Dunsby, the Chief Executive of Harrogate Chamber of Trade and Commerce, which is organising the event, said: “In 2013, we had around 150 stalls and were selling the final few spaces in late October.

“This year, we expect to sell out in around half the time it took last year. Applications are still coming in very regularly, so it is important that any local businesses interested in taking part get in touch with us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We try to maintain variety, so if your product is unique, contact us.

Harrogate Christmas Market focuses on good quality, hand-made or homemade products, gifts and decorations, as well as festive food and drink, from around Yorkshire and the UK. From the bookings already made, guests can expect to find local photography, beers and ales from North Yorkshire, wooden sculptures, jewellery, home-made soups, hand-knitted accessories and much more.
