More 60 small businesses will have stalls when the event returns to Burnley.

Now it will return on Saturday, November 6 with 65 traders and an emphasis on Christmas gifts, food and drink.

Gemma Sutton from ‘The Voice Box’, a North-West based West End and TV performer, will perform acoustic sets from her converted horse box at the event which starts at 10am in St James’s Street in Burnley town centre.

The Burnley artisan market is a collaboration between Burnley Business Improvement District (BID), Burnley Borough Council and Independent Street

Pendleside Hospice will be running a Christmas craft area for young visitors.

Burnley BID Project Manager Andrew Dean commented: “The response to the first two markets has been fantastic and we’re really looking forward to the November and December events which will feature some amazing seasonal produce.”
