Have yourself a Harley little Christmas

The best of the region’s contemporary artists and designers will be showcasing their work at the Christmas Art and Food Market at the Harley Gallery on the Welbeck Estate this weekend. Now in its 15th year, this is the first time the popular event is open for three whole days, to allow thousands of visitors more browsing time at the 70 art and food stalls. It’s a great opportunity to explore the Harley studios and meet resident artists working on jewellery, ceramics, prints, textiles and more. If you’re looking to stock up on treats for the winter, it’s also a great place to pick up the best of locally produced fine food and drink from Stichelton Cheese, Welbeck Abbey Brewery ales and meats raised on the estate. Top tips are the Christmas pudding and mince pies, made in the Welbeck Bakehouse. Open 10am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday and until 4pm on Sunday. Free entry and parking.
