Travelling historical market comes to Normanby Hall for Christmas

Step back in time this Christmas as Normanby Hall Country Park is set to welcome the Travelling Christmas Historical Market for the first time.

The market will be open from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 December offering a unique experience for visitors in the grounds of the 300 acre country park.

Traders dressed in authentic historical clothing will be selling handmade goods including leatherwork, jewellery, baskets, candles and traditional food and drinks.

With an historical atmosphere, handmade bespoke gifts and live music and entertainment, visitors are guaranteed to get in the festive spirit.

Opening times:

Friday 13 December – 6.30pm to 9pm

Saturday 14 December – 10am to 9pm

Sunday 15 December – 10am to 4pm

Stalls appearing include:

  • The Unfound Door – historic jewellers catering for a wide spectrum of periods and influences in sterling silver and 9ct gold, with precious and semi-precious stones. A mixture of handmade and ethically sourced items are always available.
  • Mythicarium – a fine artist specialising in equines and British mythology. Their subject matter extends to medieval era fauna, legends, royalty and horses.
  • Cowley’s Fine Foods – purveyors of tasty treats and unique snacks both vegan and meat, all handmade in the heart of South Wales.
  • A Piece of History – manufacturers and suppliers of traditional archery equipment. Find them at historical events in the UK and Europe.
  • Roo the Leathercarver – hand carved leather goods, commissions and repairs.

Visitors will have to pay for car parking or annual membership holders should display their pass.

Martin Cowley, organiser of the Travelling Historical Christmas Market, said: “Our members have a real passion for preserving the past, with unique gifts that you won’t find on the high street. I was raised in Winterton so I’m really looking forward to returning to the beautiful Normanby Hall with the Travelling Historical Christmas Market.”

The Travelling Christmas Historical Market coincides with the Christmas Market at Normanby Hall on Sunday 15 December that features more than 70 stalls selling local crafts and produce.
