EAST RIDING THEATRE ANNOUNCE VIRTUAL CHRISTMAS MARKET

ERT would like to showcase new businesses and creatives from across our region during lockdown

 

East Riding Theatre will be hosting an online Christmas Market from Wednesday 25th November, to Wednesday 23rd December.

The online Christmas Market has been created in response to the announcement of the cancellation of the popular in-person Christmas Market, normally held in ert Café Bar. East Riding Theatre would like to offer those businesses who would’ve been taking part, and those who perhaps wouldn’t have been, to join the online version.

Each week, ERT will be collating and publishing a list of 10 businesses on the ‘What's On’ page at: https://www.eastridingtheatre.co.uk/whats-on/.

ERT are keen to support all local businesses especially craftspeople, creative practitioners and artists whose livelihoods have suffered during the pandemic.

Sue Kirkman, the theatre’s General Manager, said: “Freelance creatives have experienced huge financial challenges throughout lockdown, resulting in little or no income through work drying up or simply not qualifying for furlough. In supporting their creative businesses and encouraging people to buy local over the Festive season, I hope ERT’s modest gesture can make some difference.

“The Christmas Market is a brilliant opportunity for any new businesses and traders to showcase their creative work. We encourage anyone from Christmas card makers to small independent fashion brands, to get in touch and get their work seen.”

The ERT Virtual Christmas Market will run from 25th November to 23rd December.

If you own a local business and would like to set up an e-stall, contact: Charlotte@eastridingtheatre.co.uk  providing a short bio (50-75 words), a square image (1080 pixels X 1080 pixels) and a selection of URL links to your social media accounts and website.
