"It’s a chance to get together with friends, tick off your Christmas shopping list, all the while helping St Michael’s hospice who helped my Uncle get through the last few days in some comfort.

"This is more than just an event for me, this is local people supporting local people.”

These are causes of Harrogate's terrible rail performance figuresThe first 100 tickets sold will receive a goody bag and a donation of the ticket sale will be made to charity, plus families are in for a treat, as the big man himself will make an appearance between 5pm and 6pm.

“We are sandwiched between the annual Harrogate Christmas Market, the weekend before and the huge Country Living Fair, the weekend after

"But what we offer is true independent shopping in a great (weather proof) location.

"Arlo & Jacob is a beautiful setting and they have been ever so supportive. Plus, we get to try out all their gorgeous sofas.”

Guest won’t go hungry or thirsty either with a choice of local food & drink suppliers including Napoli Wood Fired Pizzas and Yorkshire Heart wine and beer producers who are based just a few miles from Harrogate.

Head Brewer, Tim from Yorkshire Heart said, “It’s our second year attending Harrogate Tribe, An Indie Christmas, and this year we’ll be serving our lovely mulled wine which is grown right here in Yorkshire. We love the indie vibe and the girls at Harrogate Tribe know how to put on a good party.”

Store Manager, Deborah Dickinson from Arlo & Jacob said, “We are delighted to be hosting An Indie Christmas market and to be working in partnership with Harrogate Tribe and many independent local retailers and companies for this exciting community event.

"This is also a fantastic opportunity to support Saint Michael’s Hospice, this year’s chosen local charity. "
