Shrewsbury Market Hall is opening late for Christmas shopping, food and drink at two festive Winter Warmer events.
Gift stalls will open late and bars and eateries will open up to 9pm on Wednesday November 22, the night of the Shrewsbury Christmas Lights Switch On, and Wednesday December 13, the evening of Carols In The Square.
The market is also teaming up with the Shrewsbury Food Hub and legendary Shropshire slow food chef the Hungry Guy.
Shoppers, who buy from one of the market’s retailers between 5pm and 7pm on the night, will receive a voucher for a complimentary mince pie and a glass of mulled wine (while stocks last), courtesy of the Shrewsbury Food Hub.
And Steve, aka Hungry Guy, will be cooking up some delicious culinary delights for shoppers in an exchange for a donation to the charity.
Market Facilities Manager Kate Gittins said: “The Christmas Lights Switch-On marks the real start of the festive season in Shrewsbury and we’re delighted to be part of the evening festivities. And Carols In The Square is such a magical evening too.
“We’ll be open for food and drink and a selection of our independent retail stalls will be selling cards, handcrafted decorations and a range of gifts for all the family.
“We’re excited to be joined by the Shrewsbury Food Hub and the Hungry Guy, during both evenings, and we hope our shoppers will help them raise lots of money for this great charity.”
