Small biz POP UP Christmas MARKET



We will be entertained throughout the day, with a walkabout magician, glitter tattoos, face painting, meet & greet a chimp or Toucan, circus skills and loads of balloons all provided by Absolute DJs Ltd.


Stockports very own Dave Starr and his team from KFM Radio will be spinning some discs all through the day. We also have our faithful buskers scattered about and, carol singing by Brabyns Primary School and Marple Carver Theatre.


Santa and his elves will be roaming around the precinct greeting the little ones and spreading some festive cheer around Marple before he plans his trip around the world for the big day.


Keeping the younger generation entertained, Marple Guides will be offering crafts, faceprinting and much, much more.
