SMALL businesses and self-employed craftspeople in Trowbridge are being invited to book stalls at the Civic Christmas Market.

With less than 80 days left until Christmas Day, the town council is sparing no effort to make Christmas shopping a little easier and more unique.

The Civic Centre will be hosting a Christmas Market where residents and visitors will be able to support local businesses as well as having an opportunity to purchase unique and beautiful gifts for their loved ones.

The council is inviting craftspeople and small businesses to take part in the market on Saturday and Sunday, November 27 and 28.

The event is being held to coincide with the Trowbridge Christmas Lights switch on and Lantern Parade which takes place on Saturday, November 27. A festive winter window display is also planned.

The Civic is encouraging businesses and craftspeople to book their pitches now as spaces are limited and a two-day pitch is just £70.
