Community Engagement

For us it’s all about partnerships, we like to become part of the towns and cities we visit. It is also why we support charities, young businesses and sports clubs.


At each Christmas Market, we like to support community projects, from literary festivals that promote reading to young children, to community sporting events. This is part of our commitment to support communities.

We work with our partners to ensure as many people as possible benefit our events: like the young entrepreneurs who enter our Pitch Perfect competition and the local charity with whom we partner and to whom we donate Santa’s Grotto.

We design and build the Grotto and support the charities so they can operate it, raising thousands of pounds and offering them a platform to promote their good work.

Our initiatives such as the Pitch Perfect competition offer support to young people starting out on their entrepeneurial journeys, they also offer us a way to keep our product offer exciting and fresh.

We also employ a vast amount of local suppliers on the ground at the locations we visit; from recycling companies to fresh produce suppliers and construction teams, we really do believe it's the people visiting our events who make them special.  

Market Place are proud that our community engagement helps us leave a positive lasting impact and legacy.
