The historic sloping High Street in Totnes will be bustling with festive cheer on the three Tuesdays before Christmas thanks to the Totnes Night Market. Known for its bohemian ethos and collection of quirky boutiques and independent shops, the town will host hundreds of market stalls selling the kind of gifts you just won’t find anywhere else.
Live performances will add some extra Christmas magic, and they’ll include groups from local schools, bands and lantern parades to light up the evening. Santa will be in his grotto and ready to welcome visitors, and the smell of mulled wine will tempt the crowds to the many local produce and foodie stalls.
There’s a laidback atmosphere in Totnes that’s made it a magnet for those who like to escape the mainstream and shop somewhere different, and its shops offer handmade, locally produced items that stand out. The main High Street closes to traffic for the event so it’s best to make your way there on foot or public transport– so it’s perfect if you’re staying nearby.
8th, 15th and 22nd December 2015.
