Night Market Magic Planned For Derby’s Sadler Gate

Businesses in Derby’s iconic Sadler Gate have joined forces to organise their first festive night market on Thursday 30th November between 5pm and 9.30pm.

More than 70 local artisan makers, food and drink producers and Sadler Gate hospitality venues will showcase their wares, promising something for everyone – whatever their palate or pocket.

Visitors will be invited to follow a festive trail along the street, inside Sadler Gate businesses, into The Strand Arcade and then onto the Down to Earth Electric Daisy communal gardens.

Under the twinkling festive lights, street entertainment will reflect the street’s historical heritage – including Victorian carol singers and the characters from ‘Scrooge’ who will be performing at The Old Bell Hotel in the run up to Christmas.

The night market has been organised by the recently-formed Love Sadler Gate group, made up of business owners in the street and headed by Paul Hurst, owner of The Old Bell Hotel; Emma Shaw from Mr Shaw’s House and Kay Samson, owner of Tubo gift shop.

Paul Hurst has been a long-time business owner in Sadler Gate and welcomed the opportunity to share his passion for the street.

Paul Hurst said: “Sadler Gate is Derby’s original high street with a vibrant history going back 1,000 years. Curated events are an important way to bring people to Sadler Gate and we have joined together to curate a night market that reflects the unique character of this iconic street.”

“We want the Night Market to be a lovely event for all the family to enjoy where visitors can experience the warmth and vibrancy of our Sadler Gate community.”

James and Louisa Hurdis are directors of Canopy and are hosting four artisan makers in their shop in Sadler Gate.

They continued: “We’re really excited to be involved in the Night Market which will be a great start to the festive season and are expecting a great atmosphere in Sadler Gate on the night.”

Artisan maker Beckie Fox from Fox and Bee Crafts added: “I’m thrilled to join this new vibrant night market alongside fellow small businesses. With a true passion for design and making, I can’t wait to share my unique offerings with the community and see what everyone else has.”

And Richard Slater from Slate Leather concluded: “The Night Market is going to be a great evening and an opportunity to meet customers and other makers who are passionate about artisan crafts, food and independent businesses.”

The Night Market will be the first of many unmissable events organised by Love Sadler Gate with 2024 bringing a whole host of new and exciting experiences to the street.

Reduced rate parking will be available at Chapel Street carpark from 3pm on Thursday 30th November until the following morning.
