There's nothing like a good market for picking up all those unique decorations, foodstuffs and presents you'll need for Christmas, and the festive event that is due to descend on Blandford this November is no exception.

For just one day, the streets of this market town in Dorset will be lined with dozens of stalls selling everything from cakes and plants to rare books and intricate needlecraft.

Visitors will be treated to mulled wine, woodcraft demonstrations and paintings, while the traditional tambola will also be operating to give attendees the chance to win some fabulous prizes.

With the event opening at 11am on November 17th at the local Okeford Fitzpaine Village Hall, you had better book your accommodation as soon as possible. Stay at the nearby Summer Lodge with the Quintessential British Experience offer to get the most out of your stay.
