The festive season will arrive in style at a stately home on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border – in the shape of two weekends of fabulous Christmas markets.

Weston Park’s Christmas Markets will take place on December 2 and 3 and December 9 and 10 from 10am-4pm in the grounds of the stately home – offering the ideal chance to snap up the perfect gift.

The markets will host more than 100 local artisan food and craft traders, street food from all over the world, live music and festive drinks.

Jennifer Astbury, head of estate operations at Weston Park, said: “Weston’s Christmas Markets are set to kick off our ‘season of joy’ with a unique shopping experience taking place over the first two weekends in December.

“They will feature a whole host of local businesses, meaning that you can start your Christmas shopping early and find that unique gift for someone special. From luxury candles, homemade wax melts and tree decorations to treats for your furry friends and homemade keepsakes, we’ll have something for everyone.

‘’There will also be a specially selected line up of local food traders for you to purchase the finishing touches for your festive feast and find all your Christmas cheese board essentials.

‘’The Christmas markets will also feature a range of street food vendors, serving soul warming delicious food that is bursting with flavour. From gourmet burgers, stone baked pizza and delicious Greek cuisine to warm, freshly-made donuts and hot chocolate made with melted milk, dark or white chocolate, we’ve got it all.

“We are proud to be working with some of the best local artisan food producers and crafters from the area and we hope that Weston’s Christmas markets will encourage visitors to shop local.

‘’The house will also be decorated for the festive season and will be open on Saturday 2nd, Sunday 3rd and Saturday 9th December for you to discover the magic of Christmas on the estate.

‘’Find that unique gift for a loved one, enjoy some delicious street food or grab your favourite festive tipple and enjoy the live music – it’s a festive shopping experience that’s simply like no other!”
