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 popular Christmas Market at Normanby Hall on Sunday 15 December that features more than 70 stalls selling great local crafts and produce.
