St. Anne’s Christmas Market (STEP)
December 8 @ 10:00 am – December 11 @ 7:00 pm
Following on from the success of the 2021 STEP into Christmas Market, this event will return for 2022 from Thursday 8th to Sunday 11th December. As the 2021 event was the first Christmas Market and the first event that STEP has held in Ashton Gardens, they have taken on board the feedback and will be making some changes.
There’s much more time available to plan this year, so they hope to work with local businesses to tie-in with their Late Night opening, festive windows, seasonal costumes etc encouraging even more footfall into the town. Priority for stalls will be given to local businesses – please drop us a message from the STEP Facebook page via messenger if you are interested in having a stall.
They also plan to get their request in early to Santa to make sure that he can see lots of children in his grotto again, the team are sure that he’ll be happy to do a ‘quiet hour’ for the children who find all the noise and lights a bit too much.
The visitor count for the STEP into Christmas 2021 Market was 14,000 people so STEP are hoping to make 2022 a bumper year for St Anne’s.
