Independent businesses in Lichfield are teaming up for a Christmas market at a city micropub.
The Whippet Inn will throw open its doors from 3pm to 8pm on 9th December for visitors to stock up on festive gifts.
Taking part in the event will be Evie la Lùve Lingerie, offering sew-your-own patterns and handmade gifts, illustrator Made by Leah, artisan baker Baked Attraction; Simply Made, which sells vegan and eco-friendly handmade soy candles, and Harriet’s Plants.
Taken over by James Bullivant in 2018, much of The Whippet Inn’s focus over the past two years has been on supporting independent brewers, distillers and local businesses.
“Lichfield is full of creative people doing really interesting and unusual things.
“We wanted to do something different and showcase all of the independents that the city has to offer.
“Think differently about your Christmas shopping this year, buy some really special gifts and support local businesses at the same time.”
Mulled cider and mince pies
As well as the stalls, there will also be mulled cider and mince pies on offer.
Hannah Bullivant, owner of Evie la Lùve Lingerie, said:
“What better way to start the Christmas season and what a great bunch of talented independents.
“I think I can speak for everyone in saying that we’re incredibly excited to be setting up stall at the Whippet – it’s going to be brilliant.”
