An Old Glossop Victorian Christmas : Early this month, as the Glossop part to the ‘Victorian Christmas’ events organised in partnership with the Glossopdale Trust, was the Old Glossop Victorian Christmas.
Organised by Paul from the High Peak Foodbank, Garry Parvin, Old Glossop Residents Association and a whole host of locals, the main street of Old Glossop was transformed into a hub of seasonal merriment, with a great range of stalls, activities and entertainment including morris dancing, a lantern parade and carol singing, along with the all important (especially after the damp tidings of the Glossop switch on) mulled wine from the Glossopdale Foodbank, Gaelic Coffee from the local catholic churches and local ales from the Howard Town Brewery.
The event also supported two local causes with funds raised been split between Bare Necessities the Glossopdale Foodbank and the Old Glossop Residents Association, with I understand the intention that funds raised by the residents association would be going to support a pensioners meal in the area.
The event included the great Capt Jack and his Depperado’s, along with a range of treat’s to tempt you on the stalls, including One 17 Bakery, Pub stop of Glossop Maps and the Great Little Baking Co, and there was also an art exhibition in the Old Glossop Parish Church so there was plenty going on.
With far better weather than the Glossop event the week before, a great time was had by all in attendance and thanks must go out to all the organisers, stall holders and entertainers especially the children from St Margaret’s and All Saints Schools who along with some of the Dark Peak Orchestra provided another set of great performances to get everyone in the festive spirit, along with another great performance from the Glossop Ukulele Group.
