Two-day event to celebrate all things festive

A two-day Christmas event will take place in south east Northumberland next weekend.

Ashington Christmas Festival will offer a fantastic range of food, drinks, gifts and entertainment.

The weekend event will see a host of traders joined by the Ashington Colliery Band, a steel band, a giant snow globe and Santa’s grotto.

A spokesman for the event said: “We are also proud to announce that Arch are supporting the two-day Christmas Festival, which we are very grateful for.”

The event will take place on Saturday, November 28, and Sunday, November 29, and will run from 10am to 3pm on both days, on Station Road in Ashington.

There is also a competition to see who has the best Christmas jumper. To enter, upload a picture of yourself in your Christmas jumper to the Ashington Foodie Fest page, and the winner will be chosen from all the submitted entries to win either a Chocolate Hamper from Kenspeckle, or a £10 gift voucher to spend in The Deputy’s Kist.
