An amazing Silchester Christmas Market 2016!
Wow! What an amazing Silchester Christmas Market!
The Village Hall was jam-packed with great stalls and at one time, you couldn’t move, we were so busy! Credit to all those customers who negotiated the walkways without spilling their mulled wine!
Thanks to all of our stallholders, old and new, who worked hard to be set up and ready in record time before the doors opened. We had long queues waiting to get in and it was wonderful to let people in heralded by festive music from Burnished Brass. Christmas spirit in abundance.
We would also like to thank the brownies who serenaded us with Christmas carols. Voices of angels rained down on us from the hall balcony.
Special and heartfelt thanks to the big man himself, Santa, who rushed down from the North Pole to Silchester. Truly, a special moment for the many good children who came to see him.
Planning now starts for 2017 Markets! What will the new year bring us?!
To all Silchester Village Market customers, thank you for supporting the market during 2016. It just wouldn’t have been the same without you.
