Creative metalworker Kev Colbear is holding a series of outdoor weekend Christmas markets at his workshop in East Bergholt.
The event will begin on Saturday 14 November and end on December 20 and will take place every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm at Woodlands Farm, Park Road, East Bergholt CO7 6XT. Each weekend there will be a carefully selected bunch of independent local artisans and makers all waiting to show their amazing wares.
Kev says: “I’m really excited to be hosting a series of real-life events! So many markets and events that makers usually attend at this time of year cannot go ahead, understandably, and so I decided to put on my own. I’m lucky to have a couple of big fields where social distancing can be made easy. There will be sanitiser and signage and whatever is needed to keep shoppers safe. There is plenty of parking and we’ll have food and drinks too. I’d be delighted if people chose to do their Christmas shopping locally, from independent businesses that need support.”
Kev is bringing together a collective of local artisans and makers to offer you the chance to get festive and shop local. Different makers will attend each weekend so follow Kev on social media or visit his website for details of who you can expect to see when you plan your visit.
Kev adds: “By mixing up the makers each weekend if people want to come more than once or bring different sets of friends, they’ll always see something new. I’ll have all of my creative metalwork on display: obelisks and arches, orbs, hornets and bulrushes for your garden as well as unusual sculptures that I’ve made this year. I’d love to see you all”
