Christmas Night Market Party – This Friday!

Our Christmas night market and last market of the year will be held on Friday 18th December 2015, 4pm to 9pm, on the Levenshulme train station car park. 

It’s the big one! Our festive extravaganza is finally here, with more jingles and tinsel than you can shake a stick at. We’ve lined up AMAZING food, mulled and spiced loveliness, last-chance Christmas present shopping, live music and more to make our very last market of the year extra special. Here’s what we’ve got lined up for you, and see below for our full list of lovely traders.

Carol singing and live music 

Head to the market by 6pm to catch local choir the Levy Chorus perform some beautiful traditional Christmas carols and songs, getting us feeling all fuzzy and festive. Then, at 7pm, immensely talented Levenshulme musician Phil Davies and his band, the ninjasmokebombs, will be taking to the stage to entertain the crowds. We’re mega excited – take a listen here to find out why.

Find Brewdolph! 

It wouldn’t be Christmas without prezzies, so we’ve teamed up with our very generous traders to give away loads of them. All you need to do to win handmade jewellery or locally brewed beer hampers is to ‘Find Brewdolph’! Get yourself a hot drink and ask for your brew in one of our reusable green mugs, then once you’ve supped – check the bottom to see if there’s a special numbered red nose hiding there. If you get one, return your mug and get a voucher to claim your prize at one of the stalls. Hurray!
