Festive market is back in town.

Guisborough's spectacular Christmas Market returns to the town this Saturday combining a popular blend of arts and crafts, home-grown food and entertainment.

The all-day event is jointly organised by Gisborough Estates, Guisborough Market Town Initiative and Brigantia.

Craft products for sale include dried flowers, pottery, hand-made felt products, candles, photography, knitwear and paintings.

Organisers say the market is also a showcase for the town's established monthly Speciality Market.

The cuddly Thistledown Bears will again take part.

Retired teacher Joyce Thistlethwaite's lovingly crafted collectors' bears are typical of the craftsmanship available from the Yorkshire arts and crafts organisation, Brigantia, who will have around 14 of their members creating a special crafts fair around the Market Cross.

Joyce, 72, from Brotton, said: "I'm looking forward to returning to Guisborough, there was lots of interest in my bears last year."
