Time Slots and Pre-Registered Places
We have closed both pre-registration and our waiting list!

Pre-registered and 'waiting list' guests will be given priority access - if you haven’t registered then you may need to wait to come in depending on guest numbers we already have in the building.

We're super excited to be welcoming Sparse Vintage to The Mowbray for the first time - we met James & Lucy at another market this Summer...Their collective eye is just beautiful - and we're literally chomping at the bit to see what treasures they bring to the Christmas Market... We extended the invitation to bring a hand chosen edit of 'what to wear at Christmas' - and there has been talk of fabulous gold, sequins, silks and velvet pieces which will be chosen with grace and beauty for all in mind.
Sparse is a collaboration between James Easter and Lucy Moran, who met whilst volunteering at St Luke's Vintage shop in Broomhill and bonded over their shared love of vintage clothing. As they both already source and collect vintage clothes and homeware with a passion bordering on necessity, combining forces felt like the most natural next step. James has a very creative background in interior and costume design and Lucy has been championing second hand shopping since 2015. Sparse Vintage is so excited to be invited to The Mowbray's Christmas Market event and will be bringing a specially curated 'What to wear at Christmas' edit of beautiful, quality vintage and pre-loved clothing and accessories to get you in the festive spirit! We look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting new ones!

Everything is chosen by hand and an exacting eye and has a great story behind it. We spend a lot of time building relationships with some of the most interesting roasters locally and in the UK and around the world to bring you new and diverse tastes and flavours some of which you won't find in many parts of the UK. We tend to buy in small batches so when it's gone it's gone - but you'll always have new coffee to taste and we have new stories to tell...
At The Christmas Market Mow's will be setting up shop 'Up On The Roof' if the weather is kind to bring a beautiful coffee experience from The Cabin.
