Last weekend saw thousands of visitors coming together to celebrate in the festivities and fill themselves with much needed Christmas spirit at the Fowey Christmas Market weekender.
This Christmas market, supported by Shop Cornish is a firm favourite in the festive calendar and again offered its famous magical festive experience with street performers and seasonal singers, the charming light switch on, the much anticipated town band parade and Santa arriving by Tug Boat. Not to mention the smorgasbord of quality locally produced food and drink and festive gifts offered within the three marquees and throughout the towns boutique shops, bakeries, cafés, restaurants and pubs, all of which played their part in creating a wonderfully festive atmosphere.
The local community and visitors from around the UK all came together to soak it up and enjoy the festive spirit created by organisers Live Events South West and members of the community who pitched in to make it a huge success.
Organiser Andrew Weaver of Live Events South West said:
“It was an incredible weekend and it was an absolute pleasure to get back to normality and provide a festive weekend that we have all dearly missed. We have had so much positive feedback and its clear that people just want to get on and enjoy communing, seeing family and friends and enjoy the festivities.
The event was also full of Shop Cornish Members, and event offers a great opportunity to meet the traders in person, touch, feel, smell and sample their products before buying them.
Andrew added: “The town had a wonderful atmosphere, the pubs and restaurants were full and the shops and marquees bustling with people buying gifts. You could feel the positive energy people from all enjoying it.
Thank you to all who helped make it happen and for everyone who attended. We look forward to much the same next year and in the meantime the team here wish everyone a very merry Christmas.”
Next years event date will be announced in early 2022, and their is no doubt Shop Cornish and its members will be looking forward to seeing all again in such a beautiful and festive setting.
