BAKEWELL MONTH OF CHRISTMAS 2018 Low res file

BAKEWELL MONTH OF CHRISTMAS 2018 Low res file

Bakewell is a wonderful place to visit any time of the
year but at Christmas, with its sparkling Christmas
lights and warm welcoming atmosphere, it is
something very special.

The town, which nestles amidst the rural beauty of the
Peak District is a charming location in which to soak up
the festive spirit, whether you are shopping for gifts, taking
a country stroll, or just want to take a break from the
everyday.

It is also a great place to shop for the festive season, a far
cry from the bustle of a big city. Here you can simply stroll
down the high street and buy all your food goodies from a
local producer, who will be only too glad to give you cooking
tips.

You can pick up ‘a cheeky little number’ from the local
wine merchant and buy freshly baked artisan bread from
the local bakery. And let’s not forget the famous Bakewell
Pudding which of course makes a perfect present.

Bakewell’s lovely independent shops are a treasure trove
to explore for unique gifts and when you have finished your
shopping you can relax over coffee and cake or dinner and
a glass of wine at one of the town’s independent bars or
restaurants.

At the Grade II listed All Saint’s Church, which dominates
the Bakewell skyline, the Christmas Tree Festival is a
magical sight not to be missed by those visiting before the
big day.

Look out too for the bustling Bakewell Market and the
monthly artisan market as well as all the special events
that are being held and which we have highlighted in the
What’s On section of this booklet.

We feel sure that those of all ages are sure to enjoy the
delights of Bakewell’s fabulous festive season and wish a
very merry local Christmas to one and all!

Do you know the difference
between a gift and a present?

You give a gift simply because you feel you should but would you really buy yourself some of the gift sets that are
everywhere at this time of year? By contrast, a present is something you have put thought into, that you’re proud to

give and most of all, that you think the person you’re giving it to will love and cherish for a long time.

Antiques make the perfect present, there are so many things to choose from, they’re often unique and there’s
something to suit everyone. From diamond rings to mid-century bakewares, there’ll be something to suit all tastes.

There are so many online options these days but the best way to buy antiques is in person, with the items in your

hand you can see any flaws and feel the quality for yourself. If you can touch and see something for yourself them you

get a much better reaction as to whether you like it or not and there’s no magic secret to buying antiques - simply

ask yourself whether you like it and whether you can afford it. If you say yes to both of those questions then you

should consider buying it.

The Rutland Arms Antiques Centre, tucked away

opposite the Rutland Arms Hotel, is always a great

place to look for presents.With over 60 dealers and

the lovely Gallery Café it’s one of the most reputable

antiques centres in the country and has a long tradition

in the town. Friendly staff are around if you want advice

so forget bath bombs this year, take a look into antiques

and you’ll be sure to find the perfect present for
everyone this Christmas, all beautiful and something to

cherish for years to come.

We would like to invite you to our Christmas Showcase
on Thursday 29th November, 7pm to 9pm, where you

can enjoy drinks and nibbles, meet some of our dealers

and listen to live music.

Bakewell’s town councillors tell us what they love about a Bakewell Christmas

Mayor - Bill Storey

“I love to see Bakewell lit up with all the trees and the view along Matlock Street
in the dark with no traffic is so peaceful and emotive. The effort put in by many
shops to decorate their windows just adds to the feeling.
The Christmas Market in November is to me the real start to the festive
season, and to see the children’s faces when the Christmas tree is lit is
something I treasure”.

Deputy Mayor - John Boyle

“Bakewell bells ringing out over the town from All Saints Belfry to welcome
everyone to the many special Christmas services”

Councillor - Vivien Parnham

“Boxing Day is so special in our beautiful town watching the hunt riders
in their splendid red tunics and all the horses. As they gather together and
parade along through the town centre, followed by a lovely walk by the
river - oh,and having a coffee of course, so many venues to choose from.
As a family we love to stroll in the early evening over the festive season
enjoying the tasteful Bath Garden lights. Wonderful Christmas trees and
the sheer peacefulness of our beautiful Bakewell.
Christmas Eve spent at the Rutland Hotel having afternoon tea singing
Carols and relaxing by the open fire is also a must! If anyone hasn’t
tried it yet I can highly recommend the whole experience all for the very
reasonable price of £14.50!!”.

Councillor – Paul Morgans

“Bakewell is the perfect place to immerse yourself in a good old fashioned
Christmas. One of my favourite celebrations is the service for the
Christmas Tree Festival which is held each year at All Saint’s Church.
Around 100 local businesses and groups decorate a tree and following
hymns, readings and prayers, the church is plunged into darkness, then
after a few hushed moments the lights of the trees are dramatically
switched on. It’s a very jolly affair and truly magical.
It’s become a bit of a tradition now but I do love a visit to one of the
town’s pubs on Christmas Day where all the locals gather together before
heading home for a late Christmas lunch. It’s a great way to feel festive.”

Councillor – Steve Edwards

“The build up to Christmas means many different things to different people.
Nice warm mince pies with a blob of extra thick double cream comes to
mind and plenty of Brussels sprouts with chestnuts enjoyed with several
pre Christmas dinners seems like the right thing to do for me. As it
happens, living in Bakewell provides a great opportunity to do all those
things courtesy of our variety of retail outlets to make it seem like a
traditional seasonal time of the year. Not forgetting a nice mug of mulled
wine on the dark colder evenings!”

Peter Knight’s Gigspanner

10th Anniversary Tour
In the wake of his departure from Steeleye Span, multi award
winning fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his trio
Gigspanner, and in the process established their reputation as one of
the most genuinely ground-breaking forces on the British folk scene,
inspiring Maverick magazine to write: “Gigspanner are pushing at the
boundaries, expanding the possibilities and in the process making some
of the most beautiful music the genre has to offer”
Described by Folk Radio UK as one of the “most quietly brilliant sets of
musicians in the folk world and beyond”.

Two days
or two weeks?

Do you prefer taking short breaks or one long holiday?
There are two ways of looking at this.
Psychologists believe that people who use their holiday
allowance in short bursts rather than all in one go have
more happy memories than those who holiday for a longer
period of time.The explanation is that people’s enjoyment
fades as they become accustomed to their holiday lifestyle.
On a long holiday, day seven is less good than day one
because it’s not as exciting, probably because the anticipation
of the holiday is as much a part of the holiday as actually
being there. One way round this (if you’ve got enough
motivation!) is to break up extended time away by doing
some work in the middle of your break, making you more
appreciative of your time away from the office.That’s why
going away a few times a year rather than one long holiday
can provide more benefit than you might think.
On the other hand, taking an increased number of trips only
increases the stress associated with travelling to and from a
holiday destination, such as delayed flights or traffic jams and
the actual process of finding somewhere and booking it. But
getting away from it all for a couple of weeks can really let
you unwind and relax, coming back refreshed and ready for
what everyday life throws at you!
