This market is only on for one Sunday in December. I went on a coach trip with a friend and had a brilliant day out. All the market stalls were a mix of craft and anything associated with Christmas from gifts to trinkets, food drink and fresh produce. All the stall holders were dressed in Victorian costumes and truly pleasant. Every shop and church in Beverley and around every corner was a musical performance. We watched Morris dancing, Beverley pipe band, two different Salvation army bands, a trio playing old fashioned instruments and other music could be heard from different areas that we did not get to. We went into a Church that was advertising refreshments and for an admission price of £1.50 we were given a cup of tea or coffee and a mince pie and was sat listening to Beverley male voice choir. This was a lovely experience as they sang a lot of favourite songs and traditional carols which truly enhanced the experience.
As I stated at the beginning the event is only on one Sunday in December and it proved how popular it is when we first arrived. The coach had to queue in standing traffic approaching Beverley but as we got closer it was like military precision. Each coach had to unload its passengers and as the passengers alighted the driver was given a pick up time by stewards that were controlling the streets.
Then when it was time for our pick up the stewards radioed for the coach to come in and the traffic flowed smoothly. I was truly bubbling about the day when I arrived home and I can still feel excited about the day as I am writing this. We will definitely be going again this Christmas.
