A host of independent businesses are coming together alongside Blue Collar Corner to take part in their first ever Christmas Market.

On Saturday, November 25 and Sunday, November 26, the street food and drinks arena in Reading town centre will transform into a hub for festive gift buying and entertainment.

Seasonal music, hot booze and delicious festive food will also be available for shoppers on the day.

“Working together with other local independents has always been firmly at the heart of Blue Collar” explains Blue Collar’s Glen Dinning.

“So we couldn’t think of a better way to start the Christmas season than with a big Christmas Market showcasing many of the friends we collaborate with”.

Reading’s Indie Market takes place on bi-monthly Sundays at Blue Collar. They hope to bring many stalls to the arena, including Reading’s Flea Market selling Christmas gifts and decorations.

Alongside Blue-Collar Corner’s usual four rotating street food kitchens, their Christmas Market will include extra food stalls outside the venue, adding more festive menu options than ever.

These include the popular Heavenly Sausage with their gourmet hot dogs and Sole Luna’s fresh wood-fired pizza, both of which are always a big hit at Blue Collar’s events in Forbury Gardens and Broad Street.

Live music will bring the event to life with live performances from The Hubphonics and a special DJ set of festive favorites from local musician Damien A. Passmore.
