The Shibden estate will get in the Christmas spirit by opening its doors for a Christmas Food and Craft Fair on November 15 and 16.

There will be a variety of stalls over the weekend, offering a wide range of products from delicious homemade cakes, chutneys and jams to beautiful selections of jewellery, hand crafted leather goods and candles.

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, Coun Marcus Thompson, said: “This festive market is the perfect opportunity to get organised for Christmas, you can buy gifts with a unique, local twist, or get into the Christmas spirit early with seasonal refreshments.”

The event will run all weekend from 10am until 4pm.

Admission price is £2.50 for adults and £2 for concessions - Shibden annual pass holders go free.
