It may not be December while I am writing this but we have tinsel ready, Santa prepped, traders standing by their gazebos and Darryl polishing his fairground rides! The tree will be up, Santa is due to arrive in his sleigh and will be seeing excited children all day in his grotto! All your favourite bars and restaurants are polishing the silver, choirs are running up and down their scales – its full steam ahead for the 2019 CHRISTMAS MARKET in collaboration with the 4HTA!!
