Councillor Norma Wilburn, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, said: “The Continental Market is a new addition to Stockton Sparkles this year so I’d really encourage everyone to come along and see what’s on offer over the next few days. There will be all sorts of delicious food to try, as well as an assortment of artisan goods from the Continent which will make perfect Christmas gifts for your loved ones.
"There’s still plenty of festive entertainment in store with our popular Reindeer Parade to look forward to at 2pm on Sunday, so why not make a day of it and soak up the magical atmosphere in the town centre."
The Continental Market has been organised by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council and RR Events.
