Additional entertainment comes courtesy of The Moscow State Circus, Panto and club nights.
Official sponsors Southern Comfort will be dispensing samples via the roaming drinks trollies*, enjoy this classic drink, chased with lemonade and fresh lime or a hot toddy, pair with southern inspired comfort food created especially by The Joint.

This four –week pop –up spread over 10 –acres in Vicky Park, promises exclusive Christmas gifts available from the various market stalls, delicious food, drinks and endless entertainment from piano sing –a -longs to the aforementioned, Panto, Circus etc. You are even encouraged to dress the part by selecting a tasteless Christmas jumper from Winterville’s dressing up box, take a selfie in your festive get up tag your portrait with #southerncomfortwinterville for a chance to be immortalised on the gallery wall.
