Taurus Crafts Christmas markets look set to be the areas go-to venue for real-world festive shopping where you can meet producers, artists, and craftspeople.
Entertainment has become a key feature of the successful markets, and this year there is even more than previous years. What originally started out as a few local choirs at the markets now boasts over 20 performances; ukulele bands, singing groups, choirs, flute choir, as well as an ever-growing number of school choirs. “a favourite choir of our visitors’ are returning this year, The Wyedean Gospel Choir. Run by the students themselves this choir is upbeat, and with 40 members really put on a show for the crowd, singing contemporary versions of classics and modern chart songs”
New to the market weekends this year is an activity area. Here families can get creative with artist Jayme-lee Cooper who will provide all the equipment, materials and expert know-how so budding crafters can get making. She has planned a series of affordable drop-in workshops that will focus on using natural materials to make seasonal gifts and decorations.
Since it is the season to deck your house out in all manner of festive finery, why not peruse the centre’s selection of fresh-cut Christmas trees? Locally grown within a 15-mile radius of Taurus Crafts, the trees – which are available from 30th November – come in a selection of sizes and can be wrapped in biodegradable netting. Even better, the proceeds will help the venue continue its work of supporting adults with learning disabilities and other complex needs
