We woke on Sunday morning to find Oxford under a blanket of thick snow that threatened to ruin this year’s Harcourt Christmas Market (organised by Chalky Chic). The Harcourt Market is a community event featuring the work of a very talented bunch of locals including artists, upcyclers, silversmiths, a ceramicist and a culinary genius.
Chalky Chic runs this local market 4 times a year and it is always great fun, bringing the local community together and hosted in the Harcourt Arms public house in Jericho, Oxford.
Whilst a couple of stall holders from further afield couldn’t risk the short drive to the pub, those within walking distance rallied round and helped each other out collecting their wares. The heavy snowfall forced us indoors but the publican generously made space for us and we set up in one half of the bar. Despite the atrocious weather, plenty of brave punters donned their wellies to visit the market and it was a convivial afternoon of shopping and socialising over a Christmas drink.
Many thanks to everyone who came along, especially our lovely bunch of locals who made the event such fun.
