F.A.C.E. (Fundraising in Arboleas, Caring for Everyone) are to hold their famous Christmas Market for the third year running in a specially erected marquee that will also be used for the XVIII Al-Arbuli Gastronomic Festival.

The gigantic tent will be erected on the car park at the top of Arboleas, in front of the town hall.

F.A.C.E. (the major fundraising organisation in the Almanzora Valley) will be holding their Christmas Market on Friday December 1, starting at 6pm. Once again the main aim of the market is to raise funds for the various organisations that F.A.C.E. supports.

There will be more than 30 stalls at the market selling everything from cards to candles, Christmas wrapping to jewellery and perfume. There will also be a special visit from Santa Claus. Mulled wine and mince pies will also be available.

Radio presenters Jack Savage and Rod Oxley from 89.8 Smooth FM will be there throughout the whole evening and Carrie’s Dusty Boots will be doing a theatrical line dancing demonstration entitled ‘Oliver’.
