Put the 3rd of December in your diaries as the date of ATBShops *FIRST* outdoor Christmas Market.
The car park of Swindon’s only indoor skate park will be transformed into a sea of Christmas stalls for this fun festive family day. The event starts at 10am and will run on until 3pm.
There will be lots of local stalls selling Christmas themed arts & crafts, sweets and cakes along with handmade gifts and other local produce. This will be a fun way to buy unique gifts for your loved ones, gain Christmas inspiration as well as help to support Swindon’s local businesses and charity.
Along with all the Christmas stalls, ATBShop Skate Warehouse is holding the event in conjunction with the SN Rescue Dogs. Some of the volunteers will be on hand during the event to give tips and advice on owning a four legged friend. Plus you’ll have the chance to meet some of the rescue dogs who are currently searching for their next loving home. There will be a donation box for you to give dog food for SN Dogs and the opportunity to buy goodies from their charity stall on the day to help support them.
And if that’s not enough doggy action for you, then there will also be another special guest – Sparky the Weather dog, who has been doing the rounds lately and recently appeared on the BBC.
Plus Domino’s pizza Swindon have sponsored us with free non alcoholic mulled wine and mince pies for everyone- Thanks Domino’s.
This event is free to attend and all ages are welcome.
If you are a crafter or a stall holder and want to take part, then please get in touch. There are only a few places left. It’s free to have a stand – you just need to provide a table and chair/chairs and be ready for setup before 10am. We will be asking for stall holders for a small donation to include in our raffle, in which the profits will go to SNDogs.
The market stalls will all be undercover so don’t worry if it’s snowing or raining, you’ll be dry.
The indoor skate park will be open for business as usual on the day, but entry numbers will be limited. So arrive early if you’d like to use the skate park, get involved in the competitions and have a chance to grab a free giveaway.
