Barton Marina brings crafts and gifts galore to its Christmas Market

Barton Marina is gearing up for an unmissable Christmas Craft and Foodie Market by the waterside on Sunday November 27. With handmade gifts and live musical accompaniment, the event aims to make Christmas shopping the pleasure it should be.

Organised by Sketts Markets, stalls will offer a wide choice of crafts and other wares from traditional and modern arts and crafts, jewellery, festive decorations and clothing to skincare and toiletries. Something for everyone…including irresistible goodies. All in a lovely setting next to the picturesque Trent and Mersey Canal in Barton under Needwood.

The market will be open from 10am to 4pm, allowing plenty of time to enjoy a relaxing lunch at The Waterfront where they will be offering Christmas Fayre in the restaurant at £15 for two courses and £18 for three.

Singer Natasha Marie, well known for her soul, motown, and jazz but now also into sta, reggae and classic acoustic, will be joining the market and singing a selection of up-beat carols to get everyone into the Christmas spirit. She will be performing from 12noon until 2pm.
