Spirit of Christmas & Christmas Market 2019
The hugely popular Spirit of Christmas and Christmas Market came to Daventry!
Daventry hosted a Christmas Market and Spirit of Christmas Event in 2019, which included a plethora of activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Christmas Market: The Christmas Market was based on the High Street and included a Prosecco bar; a gin bar; various beers, ciders and ales; a hog roast; handmade jewellery; homemade chutneys and jams; and more – providing you with the perfect place to buy those last-minute Christmas presents (or even treat yourself!). With live music and the new Daventry Christmas lights official switch-on later in the evening there was lots going on and plenty to see.
Spirit of Christmas: From Santa's Grotto; Reindeer and Children's Entertainers and Face Painters there was lots to see and do. We also had Mickey and Minnie mouse wandering around the town plus the hugely popular giant snow globe! The event was rounded off with the popular Lantern Parade led by Daventry's Liberty Drum marching band.
They were really fun packed events with something for all the family.
Venue: High Street & Sheaf Street, Daventry
