Reopening Team - South Cambridgeshire Outdoor Christmas Market pdf icon PDF 848 KB

Next month, South Cambridgeshire District Council proudly plays host to an outdoor Christmas Market, along Cambourne High Street, which provides small businesses with an opportunity and platform to showcase their wares. Producers, artisans and many other diverse and local businesspeople have experienced an economically challenging eighteen months, and whilst continuing to offer support across the District and on our high streets in a day-to-day capacity, the Reopening Team hopes to encourage local tradespeople to a sparkling outdoor event in December to freely exhibit what they have to offer.

 

Creating a safe and special event is well underway and we hope our Parishes will see this as a great opportunity for local businesses to bounce back. Please support our Market by coming along next month, Sunday 05 December, where you will find over 100 independent stalls, festive fayre, and much more.
