Shop Local this Christmas Posted On 26 November 2021

Nuneaton and Bedworth Christmas Markets

You either love it or you hate it: Christmas shopping. Most of us fall into the category of either having purchased everything months in advance and are all wrapped and ready to go by December 1st, or we leave everything until the last minute and panic buy gifts online with the priority being delivery time over the actual gift itself. One thing is for certain, Christmas shopping certainly feels more of a pleasure than a chore when you’re surrounded by beautiful stalls and have the option to purchase a festive tipple to enjoy on the way round!

So, if you’re looking to shop independently this Christmas, then look no further. Spon Street Market are bringing 3 Christmas Markets on the 28th of November, 5th December and the 19th December to Coventry!  Sample Coventry and Warwickshire’s finest Street Food, Craft Producers, Makers and Retailers! Free to enter and open from 10.00am-4.00pm.

On 28th November, there will also be a Christmas Market at Bedworth Indoor Market, Mill Street from 10.00am-4.00pm. Inside will be over 40 stalls, a very special guest Santa who has a free gift for every child that spots him! Children can also write a letter to Santa and post it to the North Pole using the special post-box. There will also be a free children’s craft corner.

A plea has been made for Nuneaton to host its own version of Birmingham’s Christmas Market. With the soon-to-start construction of the landmark Hilton hotel, councillor Chris Watkins said there is a prime opportunity to capitalise on this and set-up a themed market, like the famed festive Frankfurt market, in the town centre. Speaking to the Coventry Telegraph, he explained: “I think we should look at themed markets alongside our own markets, some sort of themed market going up Abbey Street – only to complement our market. We are going ahead with the building of the hotel and the Birmingham Christmas market started out in 2001 with 24 stalls. Now it attracts three million visitors and millions of pounds into the city centre. I wondered if we could look at some sort of themed market – perhaps linking in with our German town or French town.”
