Dalegate Christmas Market in North NorfolkTuesday, December 08, 2015
Our new Christmas tradition was born last year when we first went along to the Dalegate Christmas market which is held the first weekend in December. Burnham Deepdale is a lovely village on the North Norfolk coast not far from Burnham Market. It's easy to find both from along the coast and mid Norfolk so on Sunday we took a pleasant drive out to Dalegate Christmas market to get ourselves in the festive mood and buy some presents as well as having a good peruse around the stalls.
C spied plenty that caught his eye; he bought some local ale from Brancaster Brewery.
I really like this picture of some of the choir. They were so jolly! The singing was a lovely addition to the Christmas atmosphere.
I was sorely tempted to buy some winter punch as it sounds perfect for these nippy evenings (well, the odd couple have been chilly) and I was banking on heading back at the last minute for some of this raspberry chocolate cake but absentmindedness prevailed.
There was a stall with some wonderful hand crafted jewellery on, but the lady insisted I couldn't take photographs which was rather unsporting so not only can I not share them with you but I didn't buy one either. Judging by how vacant it was around the stall it appeared nobody else felt charmed enough to make a purchase either.
I was glad to see these gorgeous pieces back again; I could have spent ages admiring the craftsmanship of these, particularly the hares. Absolutely smashing.
One stall was some wonderful lit up letters and pieces. It was really cool.
There were many of the same stalls as last year, which is encouraging to see as well as some new faces and fabulous new locally produced wares.
Plenty of interesting beverages... ales, liqueurs, wine, apple juices, punch... something for everyone.
Missed the Dalegate Christmas market this year? Pop along next year!
