Big plans for Christmas markets in Kettering

Bookings are now open for traders to come to a series of specialist markets in Kettering this Christmas.

The festive events will be run on Saturdays during November and December and will feature a mix of street food and drink, produce, artisan gifts as well as live music and entertainment.

Kettering Town Council is organising the events and has today opened up bookings to stallholders. The first market is on Saturday 25 November with subsequent events on 2, 9 and 16 of December.

As well as the Saturday markets the town council is also organising the lights switch on, which will be held on Thursday 23 November.

Traders can also apply to have a slot at the event, which will see the tree in Market Place illuminated along with the rest of the town's festive lights.

Cllr Craig Skinner, chairman of the council's Markets and Events Committee, said: "The Christmas markets are a great chance to do some present shopping, try some of the hot food and enjoy the music and entertainment. It's a fun day out for all the family and shows the best Kettering has to offer.

"We would like a range of traders and stallholders to apply – and we welcome applications from local small businesses. All the information about how to get involved is on our website."

Pitches cost £21 and the application form is now live online:
