Kidsgrove Victorian Weekend

On Saturday 30th November, Kidsgrove Town Council will be holding its annual Victorian Christmas Market at two venues.  All business traders will be located in the Victoria Hall – stalls cost £20. All charity traders will be located at the Methodist Church on the Avenue – stalls cost £10.  The event was outgrowing the Victoria Hall, but we hope to make this year even more successful. Hundreds of people attend making it one of the most well attended events of the year in Kidsgrove.  We would like to encourage anyone to take up the offer of putting on a stall, be it for business or charity. 

This event is educational for all of the family and will give you the opportunity to step back in time to imagine Kidsgrove in the Victorian era. Our food stalls will include Mince Pies and Mulled wine along with more contemporary refreshments served and prepared by volunteering local councillors. Many people dress up for the occasion in authentic period attire to enhance the Victorian ambiance. Children will also have the chance of visiting Father Christmas in his grotto.

This year we have an exciting line up of entertainers with new and upcoming solo artist, Vanessa Bebbington performing ballads and up to date tracks.  The children and staff of the Tamil School of Stoke-on-Trent will be on stage dancing to cultural music in traditional Tamil dress.  Kidsgrove community Choir and St Thomas’ Primary School students will be doing their usual stint of Christmas classics and carols. 

We have 4 business stalls left at the Victoria Hall and 10 Charity stalls left at the Methodist Church.  For booking forms click below, complete and email to: kidsgrovetc@btconnect.com

On Saturday 21st September Kidsgrove pensioners were treated to a party hosted by the Rotary club of kidsgrove.  The event that is held each year at the Kidsgrove Victoria Hall included local artists and a magician. 

Vanessa Bebbington of the University Academy of Kidsgrove wowed the audience with her theatre and pop music performances.  Why not find out more and book Vanessa for your event.  Click the link to listen to Vanessa in action and follow her on twitter:  p://tinyurl.com/nwj4ths

Tommy Lee King who has performed his Elvis tribute for years also announced his retirement.  He entertained his audience with Elvis hits and many couldnt resist a dance including myself.

Once again this popular community event was a huge success and I want to say thank you to the Rotary Club and the volunteers who helped out on the day.  We appreciate the work that is put in to hold these types of events.
