This year’s Christmas market is taking its inspiration from the popular BBC television show ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. There’ll be plenty of glitter and glamour as Ladywell celebrates ‘Strictly Christmas’.
The area outside Ladywell train station will be transformed into a festive food and gift market. Entertainment and activities are just being finalised, but will include choirs and the all-important dressing and lighting of the village Christmas tree.
Cynthia Lamptey, Chair of the LVIG Events Team, says: “Many of the village’s businesses will be taking part in ‘Strictly Christmas’, but we’ll also have a wide range of Christmas stalls selling things you can’t easily find elsewhere. Ladywell will be the place to come if you want to find that unusual or special gift. For the adults we’ll have some warming seasonal food and mulled wine on offer. For the kids we’ll have face-painting as well as a few surprises. All of this will take place against a backdrop of a traditional Christmas tree with guest choirs.”
