Over 3,000 visitors for museum market

More than 3,000 visitors packed the cobbled streets of Milestones Museum at its annual Christmas market on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December.


The streets of Hampshire’s museum of living history, which is run by Hampshire Cultural Trust, welcomed more than 40 local traders selling a range of festive gifts from confectionery to cupcakes, baubles and books, preserves and pickles. Throughout the day, Father Christmas welcomed children in his grotto, taking a break to walk round the museum and greet festive shoppers.


Visitors were also entertained by local choirs and a string quartet, while children could get crafty with a range of creative Christmas activities.


The market follows a sell-out performance of A Christmas Carol on 3rd December, when over 200 people were treated to a performance of Dickens’ Christmas classic at the museum.
