Outing to Tewkesbury Christmas Market and Festival of Light 24th November 2019

Tewkesbury Christmas Market is a one day event.  The Christmas Lights get turned on later in the evening which we did not stay to see.  When we left Carterton it was very misty/foggy and we felt that it would remain this way for the remainder of the day.  However, by the time we reached Tewkesbury the mist had lifted and it was dry and dull.  The main street in the town had approximately 70 separate stalls, some with Christmas items and some with local crafts and a Farmers Market  From the  numerous food stalls a lovely aroma lured you to them.  As it was a Sunday some went for a Sunday lunch.  The children were entertained with small fairground rides and a visit from “Father Christmas”.  Most of the shops were open and so was the Abbey.  A walk by the river still showed the after effects of flooding.  It was a very pleasant visit and a quick journey home.  Pam
