The Twelve Market Days of Christmas 2021
Following a decision made by Sleaford Town Council, the difficult decision was made to cancel this year's big, one day Christmas Market. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the safety of visitors and traders must come first.
However, we are pleased to announce that Christmas will still be celebrated in the town with the Twelve Market Days of Christmas events. These will be held in Sleaford Market Place on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays from 26th November to 20th December.
We will be able to accommodate from twelve to fifteen Market pitches at each Market (depending on the sizes of pitches required) and new traders will join our regular Market and Farmers' Market Traders. Pitches are only £7.00 for a 3m x 3m pitch and £14.00 for a double pitch. Traders are required to bring their own gazebo, table etc. Bookings must be made in advance and we will require your public liability insurance. Full details can be found in the forms below.
**Please note that mostof the Friday and Saturday dates are now fully booked for traders. The catering slots for all 12 dates are also fully booked. All four Monday dates are all still available.**
The Markets will be officially opened at 10.00am by the Mayor of Sleaford and the Sleaford Town Crier on Friday 26th November 2021. They will both also switch on the Town's Christmas lights on the same day in the Market Place at 4.00pm (Friday 26th November 2021).
There will be two free raffles drawn on Friday 26th November and on Saturday 18th December where you can win a meat voucher from Farmers Pride Market Butchers. All you need to do is put your name, phone number and email address on a piece of paper and drop it into the red post box on the front of the Town Hall in Navigation Yard (we are opposite The Hub and behind the Barge and Bottle pub).
