The Christmas Market will feature festival stalls, children’s fairground rides on Windsor Street, a ‘winter wonderland’ of illuminated creatures at The Horsepool, and a host of new Christmas characters on Pughe’s Paddock in the form of family-friendly photo boards.

A Parish Council spokesperson stated the photo-boards will prove to be perfect ‘for staging seasonal snaps to treasure, or share.’ And they will include a giant reindeer and Santa, a child-sized snowman and polar bear, with cut-out face holes for people to peek through.

Shops, businesses, churches and community venues in Burbage plan to open in the evening, with market-goers being encouraged to make a circuit of the village centre, so that they are able to take in all that is on offer.

Children and families are being encouraged to follow a festival trail, which will have a treat at the end for them.

Burbage Parish Council have stated that they are grateful to the Burbage branch of the Royal British Legion in helping to co-ordinate the Windsor Street stalls.

At the time of publication (6 November), there are only a few pitches remaining. To book a pitch, contact the RBL on 07765 660358, or email

Stall holders will need to be public liability insurance, provide all of their own equipment, power and lighting – and even pay a £20 deposit.

It has been noted that a road closure will be in place before, during, and after, the event.
