Burbage Parish Council is joining forces with East Midlands Markets and Events to host an evening Christmas Street Market in Windsor Street on November 30.

Running from 6.30pm to 9pm, the free event will see the street filled with artisan food, drink and crafts stalls, offering festive fare and gourmet gifts to go.

Pubs, businesses, churches and community spaces along the street and around the village will be open and offering extra attractions and seasonal refreshments. More »

There will be children's fairground rides, and it is rumoured that Santa may be paying a visit.

To help the market go with an extra swing, street musicians will be performing 20-minute sets until 9pm.

Performers are to include carolling choristers from St Catherine's Church (7.30pm), husband and wife duo Shaken Lime from Hinckley (7pm), two members of Hinckley-based Celtic band The Craic (8.30pm), and The Burbettes – a female a cappella trio from Burbage who will be raising money for AMMF, the only registered charity raising awareness of, information about and support for sufferers of bile duct cancer (8pm).

ROAD CLOSURE
Windsor Street will be closed to traffic from the junction with Britannia Road to the junction with Church Street between 4pm and 10.30pm, to allow the market to operate as a vehicle-free zone, and there will be no access via Freemans Lane.

Any musicians and street entertainers interested in performing on the night are asked to contact Burbage Parish Council office on 01455 637533. » Less
