From 10am until 4pm on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November, the Hospice gardens will be transformed into a winter wonderland with sparkling lights, a wonderful Christmas market, games, crafts and performances by Women in Harmony, Saxissimo, Sarah Harris and the Tonbridge Scout and Guide Band.
With over forty stalls selling locally made crafts and produce including decorations, fashion, jewellery, home decor and more, visitors can enjoy browsing and buying, as well as sampling the range of food on offer from the Scandilicous food van, Simply Wafflez and, of course, the Hospice café will be open too.
There will be plenty of Christmas crafts available for you to try your hand at, including a wreath-making workshop with Tilly Bee Flowers, as well as other activities for all the family. You’ll also have the chance to win fabulous prizes in our raffle and tombola.
And let’s not forget the big man himself, who will, of course, be making a special appearance. Set in his magical grotto, Father Christmas will be supported by the cheeky Hospice elves who will help make Christmas all the more special for your little ones.
Speaking ahead of the Christmas Market, Fundraising Manager Lisa Browning said: ‘It’s so exciting to be holding the Christmas Market in our Hospice grounds again. It’ll be a wonderful opportunity for visitors to find Christmas gifts from local sellers while supporting a great cause and experiencing the magic of Christmas.’
It’s never too early to put the date in the diary. Also, don’t forget to visit our website to book to meet Father Christmas. Please pre-book the wreath-making activity on the Tilly Bee Flowers website. There is a suggested £5 donation to enter the Christmas Market with all proceeds going to support Hospice in the Weald.
