I’ve spent the morning at Stockport Market on the first of three weekends of big events in the run-up to Christmas.
Today we had the indoor and outdoor market, Dickens-themes heritage market, Stockport dungeon, brass band, carol singers, Teenage Market and more.
BBC Radio Manchester spent the morning with us speaking to people about everything that’s going on. In my interview I talked about the free parking on Sundays between now and Christmas, free parking after 2pm in the week before Christmas and the free Metroshuttle bus (number 300) that goes around the town centre.
The Teenage market was set up in 8 Market Square (and we came away with a really nice print), and there were lots of crafts, food and drink stalls .
Tomorrow (9th December) is Vintage Village at the market, then next Saturday (15th) is the Winter Wassale beer festival and the Sunday before Christmas (23rd December) is the Stockport Market Christmas Fair with ice rink, pony rides, music and entertainment.
And remember…free parking in all Council car parks for the Vintage Village and the Christmas Fair!
Here are some photos of today’s events – plus one of me in the stocks.
