Tips for visiting

With just 3 days to go until the doors of The Roundhouse open for the Christmas Home, Food & Gift Market, here are some tips for visiting:

If you’re planning to travel by car, there are lots of car parking spaces close to the venue.  To park at a Roundhouse Car Park, there is a £2 per car fee.  This allows you to park there all day and enjoy the event.  The Car Parks are managed by The Roundhouse & not the Christmas Home, Food & Gift Market.

2 weeks to go!

Everything you need to know about making your way to the event is on our ‘Visiting the Event’ page.  Click here to take a look.

VIP Experience

Our popular VIP Tickets have sold out for this year, but if you were one of the lucky ones to book your ticket… you’ll be enjoying a fabulous VIP Area styled by Klara from Birds in the Attic.

Overlooking the Library shopping area, it is the perfect place to relax with a glass of prosecco & a slice of delicious cake in a beautifully styled lounge…while looking though the Goody bag.

The VIP Area is a very special part of my events and Klara’s creative vision turns a blank canvas into a sanctuary. I’ve met with Klara recently and this year’s VIP Area is going to be beautiful! I met Klara well over 3 years ago at a wedding event where she was standing… I knew immediately that I wanted us to work together. I asked if she would like to style the VIP Area at my events, luckily she said yes!

To find out more about Birds in the Attic, pop over to Klara’s instagram.

All our VIP Tickets have sold for the event, but they will be back for our Spring Home, Food & Gift Market in March 2018.

Pop-up Tea Room

The popular pop-up Tea Room will be back at this year’s Christmas Home, Food & Gift Market with a fabulous menu of layer cakes, tray bakes, mince pies & clotted cream scones.

The Tea Room is brought to you by Fabulous Places and, like the event itself, I have hand selected the menu to include only delicious sweet treats & drinks.

Layer cakes & tray bakes from Sophisticakes
Scones & mince pies from Croots Farm Shop
Coffee from Azorieblue Coffee
Yorkshire Tea

See you on the 11th & 12th November!
