A pop-up Christmas Market will take place at Portsmouth Museum and Art Gallery from 10am-4pm on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 December, featuring a host of top-quality local sellers, offering everything from handmade silver jewellery to local history books, ceramics, prints and greetings cards.

The event pop-up market is the latest in a string of free festive events hosted by Portsmouth City Council this Christmas.  Food and beverages will be available from the museum café.

Cllr Steve Pitt, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure, and Economic Development said:

“The museum and market are both free to enter, so visitors can combine both for a great family day out. Lots of people will be feeling the pinch right now, so it’s great that Portsmouth City Council can put on a fantastic event like this, to help everyone get in the festive spirit and support our local traders.”
