The event management plan has been approved and the market will go ahead on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December.

Little Bird Made – a well-established curator of artisan markets across the county – will host the festive market between 10am and 3pm.

Jackie Crozier, owner of Little Bird Made, said:

“I am delighted Harrogate Borough Council have agreed that we can bring an additional Christmas market to Harrogate this year.
