The Designer Makers Christmas Market will be at The Witham on Friday, November 15 and Saturday, 16, from 10am to 4pm. Handmade gifts can be bought and commissioned, there will be demonstrations and 'have-a-go' sessions at various techniques. Free admission, but there will be a collection in aid of St Teresa’s Hospice.

It runs alongside the Artseen exhibition in The Witham Gallery by Teesdale artists Ann Whitfield, Jane Young and Jen Wise.
