Explore Christmas in Campbeltown Market

Postby Explore Campbeltown » Wed Dec 04, 2013 9:26 am

The Explore Christmas in Campbeltown Market is taking place this Sunday (8th December) from 11am - 4pm in the Malt Barns at Springbank Distillery.

There will be 48 local businesses present on the day with a wide variety of gifts available to suit all your Christmas needs! Stalls will range from crafters and retailers to hair and beauty salons as well as hot food and drink from some of our local outlets. Santa and his elves will also be there making it a fun day for all the family to enjoy!

Access to the distillery from Glebe Street will be blocked on the day but you can enter via the entrance on Longrow (directly across from the Golden Ocean Chinese restaurant) and parking at the distillery will be limited.

It's a great opportunity to showcase and support our local businesses so please help to spread the word! :D

On behalf of Explore Campbeltown we would like to thank everyone who got involved in the market - either by having a stall there on the day, helping with preparations in the Malt Barns, entertaining the crowds with music or just coming along and showing support. We had a total of 46 stalls present and everyone involved was amazed at the number of locals and visitors who turned up in their hundreds to enjoy the day. It was great to see so many different businesses under one roof and truly celebrate what we have to offer as a community.

There was a great buzz around the place and everyone certainly seemed to be getting into the Christmas spirit, it’s a great venue for this type of event and we are very lucky to have it available to us.

We have been overwhelmed with the feedback on both the Explore Campbeltown Facebook page and via email and we haven’t received one negative comment so far. Many stall holders have commented that they have had to place new orders to ensure they have more stock in before Christmas as their products sold so well! All the money spent on the day is being fed back into the local economy which is such an important factor for a small town in todays financial climate.

There have been numerous enquiries about whether it will happen again next year and I think it’s safe to say that after this years success, it will definitely be repeated and will be even bigger and better!! :D
