I can’t quite believe the first Summer Market was held at The Roundhouse in Derby 5 years ago… time sure does fly by!
Great news is that the events are secured at The Roundhouse for the next 2 years which is fantastic news for Fabulous Places and the Spring, Summer and Christmas Markets! Still 100% independently run and all about gorgeous food, drink and gifts.
5 years on and the Summer Market is back on Sunday 5th July for a day of hand selected gifts, delicious food and drink at a gorgeous venue. There will also be the popular Vintage Tea Room (presented by The Apple Tree Gift Shop & Tea House) and a Prosecco Bar (presented by Falcon Food & Spirits). Hot food and drink will be available on the outside plaza and indoors will be an array of goodies.

With under a month to go until the doors open at The Roundhouse in Derby for the fifth Christmas Market, it’s time to start the big promotion!
I absolutely love managing the Christmas Market, it’s full of fabulous food and gifts and marks the beginning of the festive season for me. This year the event is open later on the Saturday… I very excited to turn on the festoon lights and welcome the evening’s festivities!
Here’s what you can expect to find at this year’s Christmas Market:
Over 100 hand selected food & gift exhibitors
Pop-up Vintage Tea Room
Hot Food & Drink
For full information about the Christmas Market please click here.
We recommend travelling to the Christmas Market by train. Derby Train Station couldn’t be closer and means you can skip the queue at the car park and enjoy a glass of prosecco.
See you at the Market!

When I heard that the fabulous Lucy Sheeran illustrations were available at Chatsworth House I was delighted. So, today I took a special trip over to Chatsworth to see them for myself and I was over the moon to find a full display of cups, cushions, tea towels and tote bags with Lucy’s fabulous illustration of Chatsworth House!
I am now at home drinking a cup of tea from my Lucy Sheeran cup and I couldn’t be more happy for Lucy! To find out more about Lucy and her work you can visit her website www.lucysheeran.co.uk.

The Guide is an essential companion to getting out and about in the County and will inspire you to visit lots of fabulous cafes, coffee shops, tea houses, gift shops, boutiques and much, much more.

For the first few years I would invite everyone together and celebrate the birthday of Fabulous Places, then life took over and I didn’t quite get around to organising a get together, so this year a celebration was long overdue!
A big thank you to Butterworth Photography for letting me take over their gorgeous studio, it really was a wonderful space that worked so well for the event. A special thank you to Klara from Birds in the Attic who helped me transform the space into a Pinterest inspired party room! I absolutely loved working with Klara researching and deciding on the decor and even making paper flowers from a tutorial on Pinterest… great fun!
