Families will be able to enjoy all the festive cheer of a traditional Christmas Market at Normanby Hall Country Park on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 December.

More than 80 local businesses are set to attend the event, offering visitors the chance to pick up unique gifts and delicious food in time for Christmas.

Shoppers can also journey back in time and discover the Travelling Historical Market, with traders dressed in authentic costume selling traditional handmade goods.

A selection of fairground rides will help keep little ones entertained and there’ll be the chance to watch the Normanby team feed the deer behind the hall at 11.30am.

The roaring fire in the Regency Hall will be lit, and there will be a large variety of tasty hot food to keep visitors warm while they explore the grounds of the award-winning 300 acre park.

Cllr Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for safer, stronger communities – rural, said:

“This market is a highlight of many families’ Christmas calendars, so it’s brilliant that people can come together in person to enjoy the festive spirit, after it was held virtually last year.

“Normanby Hall is a brilliant place for families to visit all year round, but to see it decorated for Christmas is extra special – it’s the perfect backdrop for this traditional market.

“It is also an important weekend for local businesses. More than ever, it is important that we support the North Lincolnshire economy. With 85 stallholders set to attend the market it’s a great chance to shop local – visitors will be spoilt for choice for unique gifts.”
