Leadenham Christmas Market back for third year

The Leadenham House Christmas Market is back for its third year in its usual late November slot after a frantically rescheduled 2020 which saw events shifting around the calendar due to pandemic restrictions.

The atmospheric event in the stableyard and grounds of the Leadenham estate will take place between 10am and 4pm on Sunday.

Since 2019 it has been a joint effort with the award-winning Leadenham Teahouse, with local artisan crafters, gifters, makers and food producers making the festive market an opportunity for business and community shopping, hospitality and entertainment.

There will be everything from coffee to cakes, wood craft to jewellery, artisan honey to gingerbread, chocolate to lamb, ceramics to toys.

Entry to the event is free; it is outdoors and dogs are welcome, with free parking at the village hall. Visitors can eat and enjoy the live musical entertainment in a setting of historic architecture and parkland, with some new features for this year’s event too as you will be able to see inside the Coach House, which is being readied for refurbishment into a cafe/bar/restaurant.

All information about the event and a list of stall holders to peruse is available on the website too at: leadenhamestate.com. Visitors who register for the event will be kept up to date with any changes.
