As you’ll know if you’ve been following our blog, tweets or facebook updates; the Stirchley Community Market will be at returning for a Christmas special on Tuesday 26th November. We didn’t have an October or a November market, so we’re particularly looking forward to this one, and we’re quite excited about being at The Roadhouse.
The market is a great chance to buy from local independents; whether it’s for Christmas presents or additions to your weekly shop. Being a community market, it’s also great fun chatting and socialising with the locals. Throw in the Roadhouse’s Open Mic Party, Christmas tunes from the Stirchley Community Market’s resident DJ, a possible appearance from Father Christmas himself – and you’ve definitely got a Tuesday evening like no other.
We’ll be open from 4pm to 11pm, with The Roadhouse’s Open Mic Party starting at 7pm.
Here is a list of the wonderful stallholders who will be at The Roadhouse on Tuesday:
We may have a couple of last minute confirmations too.
We hope you can join us for what will be our last market of the year!
Ho ho ho!
As well as usual festive market offerings from us, the Roadhouse will be hosting their Christmas Open Mic Party, with the best of the open mic performers from 2013. The market will run from 4pm until at least 9pm, with the music, and some of our more rock n roll stallholders carrying on until 11.30pm.
A full line up will follow soon, but they’ll be stocking-fillers galore, with preserves, bread, cakes, arts, crafts, cards, decorations, zines, jewellery, magic, music, and perhaps a visit from you know who*!
We look forward to seeing you there.
*Newton Chambers/Santa/DJ Tim the Xmas Rock n Roll King all TBC!
We’re sorry to announce that the October and November markets will not take place this year, as the Stirchley United Working Men’s Club have changed their opening hours, meaning that we can’t operate the market as usual.
We’re working towards a new plan for the market, and we do intend to have something special over the festive period, so we’ll announce those details as soon as we have them.
Thanks for your continued support.
Chris, Nancy, Kerry, Rachel and Tom.
Stirchley Community Market Committee.
One big THANK YOU goes to the brilliant volunteers and stallholders who helped us set up and pack away at the end.
See you soon!

Here’s a weather forecast should that dictate your attendance:
Yesterday we celebrated our third birthday! It was warm and sunny – thank goodness, after a year of rain last year!
We had entertainment in the form of a pedal powered sound system; we’d set up a Stirchley Community Market playlist and we were taking foodie based requests.
It was great fun and once again we’re really looking forward to next month.
Thanks to everyone who came down, especially to all volunteers who helped with the put up/put away of the marquees, stalls and tables!
We hope you’ll join us on Tuesday 3rd September at the Stirchley United Working Men’s Club for more shopping and socialising!
