TARVIN CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL AND MARKET

Home » Newsroom » TARVIN CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL AND MARKET

This is it, we really are on countdown — what have we forgotten and has Father Christmas really left Lapland for Tarvin?

Hopefully everything is in place and Father Christmas is on his way to Tarvin. So this is a resume of what will be happening in the High Street this Saturday night from 5.00 pm to 9.00 pm.

The event will be opened at 5.00 pm by Councillor Hugo Deynem, the Deputy Lord Mayor of Chester and one of Tarvin's Borough Councillors.

A new feature this year is the food court which will be in The Red Lion car park where a Hog Roast is being supplied and served by The Travelling Pig Company. They will also be selling beefburgers and sausages. Other stalls will be serving Belgian waffles, pancakes and hot chestnuts.

In addition to the hot food available, there will also be the opportunity to buy luxury pies, pates, locally produced honey and chocolate, Greek olive oil and cakes.

Bath-Christmas-market

If you are short on ideas for Christmas presents, there will be stalls selling Christmas produce and crafts. You will also be able to test your skills or trust your luck on a variety of games including a chocolate tombola, always a favourite with the youngsters and possibly some adults! And please don't forget the raffle. Many local shops, pubs and restaurants will also be open and we do really appreciate their support.

Father Christmas has promised to make a special trip to Tarvin arriving just after the opening of the Market, and children are invited to welcome him and walk with him to Santa's Grotto. We suggest that the children gather at the Parish Rooms with their parents just before 5.00 pm.

Musical entertainment is being provided by the Sue Reid Trio, comprising Sue Reid, vocalist, Malcolm Hogarth, piano, and Isobel Toner, bass, contributing to the fun of the evening. The Church Youth Choir will also be singing in the Methodist Church.

More stalls and activities for the children will be found in the Methodist Church. There will be the possibility of making cards, painting pottery and watching the very popular puppet nativity shows during the evening. In addition there will be more stalls in the Church. Whilst there, you can take the opportunity to help with the judging of the children's art competition. Mulled punch will also be served alongside tea and coffee.
