An independent Christmas market will take place across Sneinton Market Avenues on the last weekend of November, thanks to a collaboration between the tenants on the site.

A Very Sneinton Christmas will be delivering festive cheer for all from 3pm – 8pm on Friday 26 November and from 11am – 4pm on Saturday 27 November.

The market is designed to celebrate the best of Sneinton’s diverse heritage and creative community. Visitors to Sneinton Market Avenues on the east side of Nottingham city centre can expect artists, makers, musicians, food, drink, and everything in between, all distinctly local and independent; a Christmas market that’s uniquely Sneinton.

Nottingham Street Food Club have also been confirmed for the Friday evening whilst Blend Coffee shop will be open and serving food and festive drinks on both days.

There will also be music from local musicians, and collection points/stalls for local charities including Emmanuel House Support Centre – a local charity that works to support the homeless community in Nottingham.

Hannah Newton, finance and operations manager from the Creative Quarter said: “Sneinton Market is at the heart of our creative community, and it’s the perfect location from which to spread some festive cheer and illuminate the eastside of Nottingham. Alongside musicians, makers, street food vendors and much more, we’ll be celebrating Nottingham’s creative spirit, our community, and the heritage of the area with a special focus on supporting local charities and keeping the event as sustainable as possible.”

Gayle Bennett and Olivia Aspinall, the team behind the Avenues Independent Market said: “We are passionate about championing and shouting about local and independent businesses and want to make Sneinton Market Avenues a go-to destination for supporting small and shopping local. We are so excited to host a selection of Nottingham’s best creatives, makers and brands.”

Dee Miller, owner of MinorOak said: “I am so excited to be part of an event that offers people a place to connect with local artists and makers so they can find unique, sustainable, and truly meaningful gifts.”
