Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity is promising lots of festive fun as it gears up to hold its first ever Christmas market to raise funds for NHS services.

Tickets are now available for the Pop Up Christmas Market, which will provide a full festive market experience and opportunity to soak up the festive atmosphere. Attractions include carol singing, Father Christmas and his grotto, and a wide-range of festive and non-festive independent craft and gift stalls.

The market takes place on Sunday 1 December, 10am-4pm, at the Majestic Hotel, Harrogate, HG1 2HU. Everybody is welcome and tickets cost £5, which include admission to the Pop Up Christmas Market, welcome drink with mince pie and one free entry into the charity’s festive prize draw. The admission fee also includes a visit for children to Christmas Corner to meet Father Christmas in his Grotto.

Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity is gearing up for its first ever Christmas market to raise funds for NHS services.

Angela Schofield, Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust’s Chairman, said: “We’re looking forward to holding our first ever Pop Up Christmas Market for Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity.

“We look forward to seeing plenty of people soaking up the festive atmosphere and spirit, singing along with the Christmas carols and meeting Father Christmas himself! Most importantly, you can help us raise funds to do more for our patients and their families within your local NHS services.”
