Local producers bring together a huge variety of skills to create unique crafts, food and drink. There’s lots of pride goes into making these products, and every stallholder will be happy to talk about what makes their contribution special.

While browsing visitors can find out a bit more about how their purchases were made, ideal for picking up just the right Christmas pressie.

There are some brilliant Christmas gift ideas, and lots of opportunities to treat yourself too. And if any budding local producers would like to join the market to sell their creations, please get in touch.”

As well as browsing the stalls, visitors can also listen to live music throughout the day, and enjoy Belton’s mansion, gardens, outdoor adventure playground, restaurants and shops. Explore the historic parkland accompanied by the new audio guide as part of the contemporary arts project, and wander through the exhibition on the Machine Gun Corps based at Belton 100 years ago. Younger visitors can enjoy the indoor Ride play area, and the new outdoor adventure playground,
