Burnham Deepdale Goes All Christmasy

Burnham Deepdale is known for great food at Deepdale Café, excellent shopping at Dalegate Market, and of course the eco-friendly hostels, tipis and yurts at Deepdale Backpackers and Camping.

In December 2009 Dalegate Market will also become known for wonderful Christmas spirit, as the whole place goes all Christmasy for the first annual Deepdale Christmas Market on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th December.

Naturally you’ll be able to relieve those retail therapy cravings, buy presents and enjoy great food, something you can do virtually every day at Dalegate Market. However the Deepdale Christmas Market will add many new stalls and activities, to really start December with a large glass of festive spirit (mulled wine or real ale to be exact).

Of course the regular shops and café at Dalegate Market will be open throughout the weekend, including Fat Face Clothing, Little Giggles Traditional Toy Shop, BloominGorgeous Florists, Keshco's Costcutter Supermarket and Deepdale Café. We’ll be welcoming Relish Jewellery & Accessories who will be opening their new shop shortly before the Christmas Market weekend.

During the day on Saturday and Sunday, a large range of stalls will be open offering Christmas goodies, great present ideas and some competitions. You’ll be able to enjoy real ale from Beeston Brewery, handmade jewellery from Ambrielle Designs and pottery from Bodgers Farm Pottery. Random Loveliness will be selling hand made items from India, Jo Spaul will be selling her illustrations and you can learn more about your surname from Family Footsteps. More stalls will be announced nearer the event.

On Saturday the RNLI will be selling second hand books and Christmas cards to raise funds for the lifeboats and Brancaster School will be running a tombola.

If you like Christmas you’ll love Saturday evening (4pm to 6pm). Hunstanton Concert Band will be performing Christmas tunes and carols. The St Mary’s Church Carollers will be supplying carol sheets for anyone wishing to join in, along with mulled wine and roast chestnuts. There will be plenty of other Christmas fayre.

Throughout the weekend Deepdale Backpackers and Camping will be holding a Christmas Present Hunt around the campsite and hostel, run by Father Christmas and his elves for both little and not so little children.

It isn’t too late for stall holders to sign up, they just need to visit the website and register their stall -
