Ford & Etal Christmas Market is returning in 2022 bigger and better than ever and spread over two days; Saturday 26th November and Sunday 27th November, from 10:00-15:00. The new-style market has stalls in Ford, Etal and Heatherslaw, with entertainment, activities and decorations in all three hubs so you can make a merry day of it. Everything is spread out to avoid a crush and parking is free.
Visitors can enjoy browsing over 50 stalls selling delicious food and drink, local crafts, gifts, pottery, presents for your pets, confectionary and much, much more. You can ride on Heatherslaw Light Railway between Heatherslaw and Etal, or enjoy a journey on a vintage double decker bus between Heatherslaw and Ford. There will be carriage rides at Hay Farm Heavy Horse Centre and a free shuttle bus running between the main hubs.
All the local shops and cafes will be open too and up in Cheviot Tap you can meet the alpacas and unwind with a glass of local ale or a mulled wine.
There is a free Christmas Tree Trail to follow and, if you complete it correctly, you will be entered into the prize draw; one adult and one child can win a fantastic hamper of goodies.
Santa will be visiting and there will be delicious food on offer to sustain you, as well as free tastings.
