Taunton Blackdown Hills Castle Green Christmas Light Switch On Market On Sunday 23rd we had the annual Christmas Light Switch on in Taunton, where the town roads were closed to make way for the biggest event of the year, the streets were filled with markets, fun fairs, a main stage, street food from the farmers market and we had our market in the Castle Green.
We were joined by the fabulous Tina Bridgman, the Bottletop Boogie Band and the Young Musical Theatre Company, who entertained us throughout the day. Thousands flocked to the Castle Green, we felt we were the oasis of Taunton, where people could step away from the main busy streets and browse our collection of quality stalls in a festive atmosphere with a pint of cider from the Tricky boys, I even spotted the odd few having a boogie to the music!!
The market will continue throughout December with varied specially selected traders from all over the Blackdowns and surrounding areas.
