STALLHOLDERS are being urged to act fast if they want to be involved in one of the borough’s top Yuletide events.
The popular North Shields Victorian Christmas Market – now in its 13th year – takes place over the weekend of December 10 and 11.
But only a few stalls remain for the event, held in Northumberland Square.
Organisers expect around 100 stallholders offering a variety of goods including festive gifts, crafts and food.
There will also be entertainment, live music and a small fairground for children.
John Fleet, North Tyneside Council’s town centres manager, said: “Always a firm favourite on the Christmas calendar, the market sees thousands of shoppers return each year to buy their traditional favourites and to enjoy the festivities.
“A brand new bandstand will feature throughout the weekend, showcasing school children from across the borough singing Christmas carols.
“We hope traders get in touch with us sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment, as stall spaces are already filling up fast.”
Other performances will include the Salvation Army, the popular opening carol service led by local churches, a Punch and Judy show, a falconry display and a grand finale Christmas sing-along on the Sunday.
The event is supported by Kier North Tyneside, TT2, the Beacon Centre and North Shields Chamber of Trade and Commerce.
