Ford Christmas Market
Sunday 26th November- 11am- 3.30pm
This annual event, which takes place inside the beautiful Lady Waterford Hall and outside under cover of a a street marquee, grows in popularity each year. With around 50 stalls selling a huge range of goods - from artisan bread to holly wreaths, seasonal cakes and bakes to hand-made knitwear, and some exclusive 'not available on the high street' items too - there will be plenty to choose from when selecting your Christmas gifts.
There's a kids carousel Santa's grotto, and some very special Christmas donkeys too! With a range of yummy refreshments including hog roast, fresh baked pizza, Crispy Conewich and fish and chips there's plenty to keep you going through the day. And if you just want to sit down over a quiet cuppa and cake the Estate House Tearoom and Ford Village Tearoom will be open too.
Free admission and free parking. Disabled parking in centre of village, limited parking around the village. Shuttle bus will run through the day picking up from Heatherslaw and overflow car park at the bottom of Ford Bank.
