THE Winter Solstice Spectacular pop-up market will be held in the High Street on Friday, December 21 between 10am and 3pm.

The space has been provided by Stroud Open House and for those few hours it will be transformed into a crafts emporium selling vintage clothes, retro toys, unique jewellery, fascinators and handmade gifts.

It will be a chance to buy some last minute Christmas presents whilst supporting local artists, as well as supporting the Bhopal Medical Appeal, who will receive 20 per cent of the day’s proceeds.

The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two clinics in Bhopal, India, offering health care to those affected by the 1984 gas disaster, or by the ongoing disaster that witnesses thousands of people drinking contaminated water.

If you or your business would like to contribute in the form of raffle prizes call 01273 603 278.
