This coming Sunday the 18th November sees a very special Christmas event in Old Portsmouth. The Traders Keep returns to the historic Round Tower for their next Artisan Market alongside the Hotwalls Christmas Tree Lighting on the Parade Ground outside the tower with music from the Victory Brass band.
“The lighting of the tree will be at 6:00pm but make sure you come in time to appreciate the live sounds of Victory Brass on our Parade Ground from 4:15pm onwards. Our on-site eatery The Canteen will be open for business with their delicious menu. There will be mulled-wine and winter warming treats available throughout the evening.”
This Traders Keep event runs from 11-5pm to coincides with the monthly Studio Open Days held by the Hotwalls Studios where they showcase their creative talents to the public. This months market is on the 18th November and features the following amazing traders: Di Di Design / Julia De Klerk / Artisanat / Melanie Lucas / Scott Lino Press / Lucy Payne / Gower Llloyd / Fours & Eights / Raw & Auburn / Rose Clover / Spice Island Chilli
Introducing The Traders Keep, a unique artisan market held exclusively inside the historic Round Tower at the beautifully renovated barracks site in Old Portsmouth. Featuring a well curated selection of traders, the aim of The Traders Keep is to support and showcase designers, creatives, makers and artists alongside each other with a focus on creating a well rounded and professionally presented market experience. Their artisan skills are the key factor to what will be on offer within the Round Tower.
We are really excited to bring something new to Old Portsmouth and more specifically to the historic Round Tower location which is steeped in naval history dating back to the 1490’s.
The Traders Keep also has 2 very special Christmas markets on the 1st & 2nd of December at the Round Tower. We will post more information about the amazing traders we have attending very soon…
