Ashton Gardens Christmas Market update

A bit more info from STEP – the organisers-

Ashton Gardens Christmas Market, St. Anne’s on the Sea.
More details are being released for the STEP into Christmas Market this week. 👏🎉
It will see a host of stalls and cabins coming into Ashton Gardens, with festive lighting to guide you through the food, drink and gift options available. 🤶🎁
Pizzas, dips, marinades, arts & crafts, candles, cards, sweet treats, wreaths, beer chalice glasses, driftwood homewares, savoury grazing cups, Scotch eggs, alcohol ink art, doughnuts, drink shimmers, gins & rums, baked treats, ceramics and Christmas goods are just a taster of what’s in store. 🍺🥂🍕🍣
“Inner State” are strolling players who will be at the St. Anne’s Christmas Market on Saturday December 11th. Andy and Christine will be doing their ‘circus routine’ in period costume interacting with visitors and offering hobby horse rides and tickets to the free children’s raffle to young children. 🎅🦌🦌🦌

Santa will be arriving in his Grotto on Thursday and will be listening to children’s list of gift requests until 6pm each day. No need to book, just turn up and bring your list as there’s a special post box which his elves will make sure returns to the North Pole. He would like £3.50 to visit him, so that he can pay for carrots for the reindeer fuel in travelling to St Anne’s and he would like you to make sure that all grown-ups wear masks in his Grotto, as he can’t risk picking up any bugs for the big day. 🎄
He is happy for grown-ups to take photos of him in his Grotto to remember the visit and we believe he is bringing a sack of presents, so that he can give one to each visitor too. Santa has also agreed to a special ‘quiet hour’ for children with Autism (ASD) before the market officially opens on Sunday, so that between 9:45-10:45 pre-booked visitors, whose senses can get a bit overloaded at times, can go through slowly and quietly to see Santa.👇
The evenings will have entertainment from local artists, starting at 6pm until the market closes at 8pm.🥳
Friday Evening will be Chelsea Stevens from 6-8pm.👩‍🎤
Saturday evening’s entertainment will be brought to you by the amazing Lucy Ella Smith, who will be singing from 6-8pm. 👨‍🎤
