German-style village advent craft fair.
Duxford is all set to hold its annual German-style Advent Market, and it will be held on Saturday 2nd December from 4pm in the wonderfully atmospheric St John’s church, now rarely used for services and virtually untouched since Victorian times.
As well as over 20 quality craft stalls there will be carol singers and a sax. band to entertain whilst shoppers warm up with a mug of authentic glühwein or hot chocolate.
New this year is a stall selling delicious Swiss raclette, alongside our bratwurst barbecue. Whilst the children wait to visit Santa with their wish lists, we have a magical story-teller and a face painter to keep them entertained. Meanwhile Mum and Dad can take a break to browse the stalls and stock up on Christmassy food and stocking fillers of every kind. From classy necklaces to glitzy decorations and sweets to hand-made toys its all there, along with gift wraps, ribbons and cards.
Kindly sponsored by local businesses, the Advent Market began in 2011 as a way of raising funds for village good causes, whilst giving local people an opportunity to brave the December chill and get into the Christmas spirit with family, friends and neighbours.
The Duxford Advent Market is open to everyone, free of charge, from 4pm to 8pm on Saturday 2nd December at old St John’s church, Duxford.
