Make it a Festive Day out in Marple and we are making it all about you and and your family. Running from 12 pm to 9 pm. Treat your children to a trip to Father Christmas Grotto, be amazed by our tamed magician, swirl the cream around and snuggle up with an artisan hot chocolate, maybe pop a little something in there to make you even cosier inside...
We promise to have something for everyone and reduce the impact on our loyal local residents but maximise the support we can muster for our fabulous local shops and businesses in this important time before Christmas. #MarpleFESTive Family Day is just what you need before Christmas another free event in the heart of Marple.

This is truly going to be the Marple you need just before Christmas, make those special memories, we have it lined up for you. Sing along, smile, giggle and dance. Join in with a carol, relive your younger days and enjoy a toffee apple and perhaps help someone younger make memories for a lifetime. Complete with candy canes and Chocolate bears and did we mention some amazing live acts to give this all an extra pizazz?

Well overdue...Marple is bringing you Christmas as it should be...
