This year, we have been extremely busy working with new customers, big and small, up and down the country. We love Christmas here at William Firth Woodcraft, and have decided to attend several Lancashire and Cumbria Christmas Markets over the festive period.
Read on to find out where we will be this year!
Lancashire and Cumbria Christmas Markets 2017
Scorton Food & GIft Fair – Sunday 5th November
As we are based in the village of Scorton, Lancashire, the Food and Gift Fair was top of our list of Markets to attend this year.
The Fair is being held at Scorton Village Hall from 10.30am – 4pm and is sure to be a great day out both for locals and people travelling to the area. And perhaps best of all, it is completely free to attend! With over 20 stallholders selling local produce and handmade gifts, we’re looking forward to saying hello to all our neighbours and meeting new faces!

Ulverston Dickensian Festival – saturday 24th and sunday 25th november
The Ulverston Dickensian Festival is one of the biggest and most popular Dickensian Festivals in the country, and this year celebrates its seventeenth year.
The Dickensian Festival is always an action-packed weekend, boasting Ulverston’s great specialistic shops, pubs, cafes, cobbled streets and festive atmosphere! There will be an array of free entertainment, free events for children, costume competitions, balloon modelling, horse drawn carriages, music, dancing, and absolutely everything is free. Not to mention the traditional, vintage Fairground!
We will be in the Christmas Market, where we and plenty of other makers and producers will be ready to welcome you to browse. Do come and say hello if you’re attending!

Kirkby Lonsdale Christmas fair weekend – Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd December
We were fortunate enough to attend the Kirkby Lonsdale Christmas Fair Weekend in 2016 within the Lunesdale Hall Indoor Christmas Shopping Market, and had one of the most festive days over the Christmas period. This year, we have opted for a wooden outdoors Chalet, of which there are 22 in total next to the Monument in Market Square.
As well as the Chalet Village in the Square, there will be an array of local food and drink producers, a Christmas craft area for children, Santa’s Grotto, not to mention the largest tree in the town! On Saturday at 2pm, the ‘switching on’ of the lights will take place as part of the traditional Festive Parade. We really do love this weekend of festivities and can’t wait to attend this year!

Hawkshead Christmas Fair – Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd December
Yes, you’ve read right, we are attending two Christmas Markets over the same weekend!
In the heart of the Lake District, Hawkshead Christmas Fair will once again boast over 50 indoor and outdoor stalls (look out for us indoors!), street entertainers, Christmas lights, a Winter Beer Festival in all pubs with live street music all day. As well as this, the lantern parade is back at 4pm on Saturday and carol singing at 4.30pm, and we’ve been told it’s not to be missed!

Garstang Victorian Christmas Festival – Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th December (from 4.30pm)
The Garstang Victorian Christmas Festival is somewhat of a festive tradition in Garstang village. Each year, it continues to go from strength to strength and this year looks to be another festive treat.
This year hosts bands, singers, stilt walkers, Punch and Judy, and all kinds of street entertainment as well as shops and stalls alike, selling in time for Christmas, into the evening. Santa’s Grotto is also back and can be found on the High Street. Enjoy local food from Hog Roast and German Sausages, to candy floss and doughnuts.
