Festive Late Nights at the Market Hall

Shrewsbury Market Hall is staging a line-up of late night festive events in the lead up to Christmas, including an extra popular Saturday Late Night.

The market will be swinging on Wednesday November 14, the night of the Shrewsbury Christmas Lights Switch-on and Christmas Cracker, when it will open until 9pm for festive shopping, food and drink and live music.

The market’s bars and eateries will be open along with retail stalls. Adele tribute artist, Libby Gliksman, will perform between 5pm and 6pm and the toe-tapping Shropshire ukulele band, Shropshire Ukulele Massive, will be in action from 6.15pm to 7.30pm.

Complimentary mulled wine and mince pies will also be available, between 6pm and 8pm, to market shoppers who make a retail purchase on the night.

On December 1 the market will open for an extra Saturday Late Night when its eateries, street food venues and gin, wine, craft beer and cocktail bars will open until 10pm. A selection of retail stalls will also open late.

Food venues include Thai and Indian street food, Spanish tapas, Tex-Mex, authentic Chinese dumplings, gourmet British burgers and hot dogs. Chef Adrian Badland, of new market eatery, The Lunch Box, will also be serving up some fusion dishes.

On Wednesday December 12 the Market Hall will host its last festive late night of the year, coinciding with Shrewsbury’s annual Carols In The Square concert.

 The market will open until 9pm for festive shopping, food and drink and live music.  Adele tribute artist, Libby Gliksman, will be back performing between 5pm and 6pm. And the carol concert will be broadcast live from The Square into the Market Hall to get shoppers and diners in the Christmas mood.

Again complimentary mulled wine and mince pies will be available, 6pm to 8pm (while stocks last), to market shoppers who make a retail purchase on the night.

“We’re really looking forward to these festive late nights. There is always a magical atmosphere to the market’s annual late night Christmas events,” said Facilities Manager Kate Gittins.
