A new Christmas market is coming to a seaside town.

The Sheringham Christmas market will take place alongside the town’s regular Saturday market at Station Road Car Park on December 9.

It will be open from 8am to 3.30pm with a variety of traders in arts and crafts, food and drink, jewellery, ceramics and health products.

The market is being put on by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), which has called on locals to swing by, shop and support the town's businesses. 

Councillor Liz Withington, who represents Sheringham North at NNDC, said: Sheringham market is an important and valued part of the town.

"It is a great draw to the town with people regularly visiting from a considerable distance away. It is great the number of regular stalls is increasing and new events such as the Christmas market are coming forward.

"Sheringham town centre as an independent high street is vibrant and interesting and the market plays an important role in supporting the town."

The council says for every £1 spent with a small or medium-sized business 63p stays in the local economy.
