This year Whitehaven will once again be hosting their Christmas offering a range of festive treats for visitors.

Copeland Borough Council is inviting local business owners to sell their wares on Saturday 27th November.

Stalls are £16 for anyone wanting to trade Christmas goods at this year's markets.

Mike Starkie, Mayor of Copeland, said: "Last Christmas was different for everyone, and this year we’re hoping to bring back a bit more fun to our town with our fantastic festive event.

"There’s something on offer for everyone with bakers, crafters, and makers keen to sell their wares.

"We’re also providing free parking on the day to encourage more visitors to the town.

"I’d urge stallholders to get in touch as soon as possible so they don’t miss their chance to be part of this great occasion."

The deadline for stallholders to book and prepay for stalls is November 20th.

School House Lane, Senhouse Street and Whitehaven Sports Centre are some of the places included in the free car parking.

There will however be some private permit bays within the car parks that are not open for public use.

Some other car parks are privately owned and may be subject to payment.
