Inspired by successful Christmas Markets & Christmas Tree Festivals in our fellow Cotswold market towns, we wish to establish an outdoor Christmas Market & indoor Christmas Tree Festival in Northleach. As with typical Christmas markets, we will offer a range of vendors selling a various selections of merchandise, goods & food stuffs in our town centre Market Place. We are particularly keen to encourage and promote local traders. The indoor Christmas Tree Festival is an extended social event, where members of the public may take a break from the cold, step inside our beautiful church, and look at the beautifully decorated Christmas trees. Our goals are: * To bringing warmth, festive joy and cheer to our community! * To creating opportunities for local traders/craftspeople. * To encouraging new visitors/tourism * To boost our local economy * To promote local services and industry * To bring people together * To forge community mental health and wellbeing.

What we'll deliver:

  • Fabulous array of market stalls offering an array of locally sourced goods and products
  • Joyous evening of carol singing in the Market Place
  • Dazzling display of Christmas Trees inside the magnificent Northleach Church
  • A wonderful opportunity for coming together and celebrating community

Why it's a great idea:

"THE NORTHLEACH CHRISTMAS MARKET & CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL" We believe that this event will have significant benefit for our local community -- residents and businesses. The short and long term benefits of this project are considerable. In terms of the local economy, we are creating an excellent opportunity for exposure and promotion for new and established local businesses; local traders and craftspeople. The Christmas Market will provide a safe environment in which vendors can sell their merchandise. (Many for the first time.) This event will also entice new visitors, stimulating tourism to our town. The added bonus for local economy will be the engagement of new visitors with our longstanding local services and industry -- which are available year-round. In terms of our community, this event will bring people together. With positive outcomes for community mental health and wellbeing. Mending social fabric, bringing warmth and cheer - when it is most needed.

Steps to get it done:

  • Our first major milestone for the Christmas Market will be receiving applications from local vendors to take part!
  • Our first milestone for the Christmas Tree Festival will be the delivery of the Christmas trees!

In an effort to "test the ground", and give ourselves a trial run for this project, we are hosted and delivered a small-scale, indoor "Northleach Christmas mini-Market" this year (2021) in the Black Cat Cafe, Northleach. This was a huge success. Our community is ready for more -- bigger and better!
