Event description

Description

Line Up: Charlotte, Mother Funker, Peter Hepworth, nonsuch DJs plus host DJ Ben Osborne

Pop Up Night Market on Saturday 6-9pm and Sunday - times to be confirmed.

The first pop up Night Market in Woodbridge is to be held alongside the debut Soul and Funk Weekend on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 December.

The Christmas Night Market is taking place in the garden of the Red Lion, in the Parkside area of the Thoroughfare, and is inspired by central and northern European nocturnal markets.

The Soul and Funk weekend, happening alongside the market, will feature two nights of home grown grooves. Saturday night runs from 6pm until 11:30pm and will see popular funk act Motherfunker join DJ Ben Osborne for an evening of deep funk played live and on vinyl.

Sunday night’s entertainment follows the ever-popular Woodbridge Christmas Market, and sees Woodbridge’s soul diva, Charlotte, and guitarist Jacob (currently studying at London’s renown BIM music school) joined by local legend and singer-songwriter Peter Hepworth, who’ll start the music at 4pm. Leading Suffolk based Northern Soul duo, nonsuch DJs, will join DJ Ben Osborne to round off the night with uptempo soul music.

Woodbridge first Night Market is being organised by Eleanor Beck, of the Old Jet’s hugely popular Saturday morning market (every first Saturday of the month), and Alex Leggett, of Framlingham's super-stylish designer gift shop, Olivie. The market will feature Christmas gifts, vinyl records and art and crafts stalls. The event has been conceived by DJ Ben Osborne, whose previous innovations in Suffolk include Woodbridge’s Art and Music Festival and programming the first Latitude Film and Music Arena. He returns to Woodbridge having just curated an exhibition for MaMA Festival in Paris, where he also DJed the iconic Moulin Rouge.

The Night Market is working with the Parkside alliance of shops and local businesses and will be followed by future night markets and Sunday street events in the Parkside area.

In addition to the music and stalls there will be street snacks, artisan teas and mulled wine, and a full pub bar, including Warfsteiner and Pravha pilsner, the German and Czech night market staples, on tap, cocktails and a full table service menu.

The events are free entry.
