It’s a great excuse to visit the attractive Derbyshire town nesting under the Peak District moors, for some Christmas shopping somewhere different !

The Christmas tree lights switch on will be by PETE MYERS, Head of Service Quality at Northern Rail.
For entertainment there is talented young magician Jake Barlow, Hollingworth Junior Brass Band, Glossop Model Railway Club, two local comic pantomime characters from Dick Whittington and a make a decoration for the tree stand.
Refreshments will be available – featuring the Friends of Glossop Station’s famous soups!
