The Chaloner Street pre-Christmas Autumn Market was held on Sunday, with more than 40 stalls and several entertainers for all the family.

Organised by the Friends of Chaloner Street, the road was closed so that shoppers could move freely amongst the stalls and enjoy the entertainment on show.

Fortunately, the rain kept away and even the sun came out at midday, which encouraged many visitors from across the area.

Many of the stalls offered food from pies to cakes and sweets, drinks, particularly gins, but the majority had hand-crafted goods, clothing, pottery, jewellery, and ornaments on offer. The stall holders came from many surrounding areas, including Guisborough.

There was a stall run by the Guisborough Greyhound Rescue group, a live painting tent run by artist teacher, James McGairy, and a tombola stall run by Guisborough town councillors.

Meanwhile, a succession of artists entertained the crowds. First was local jazz/lounge singer, Beth Miller. She was followed by Lewis Busuttil, originally from Malta, but now from Eston who has been singing for five years and writes his own songs, performed on YouTube and Spotify.

Despite it being Sunday, most of the shops and cafes in Chaloner Street and Mews were open to add to the atmosphere, and Guisborough Bookshop hosted a book promotion with author, Colin Farrington, with his recent books.
