103 Erskine Hospital Christmas Market Opening 2018 – 18th November 2018

Location
Erskine Bridge Hotel, Erskine 12:00 – 16:00

Mission Report
In all honesty I don’t think I’ve ever come closer to walking out of an event as I did this day and the sad thing is it was all down to the attitude of a single stall-holder at the Christmas market.
Positioned as she was about three or four tables from the entrance she repeatedly criticized out presence as being unsuitable for children, apparently purely based on her own child who was across the corridor in a push-chair for the duration and not the clearly contrary opinions of the majority of attendees both young and old.
Indeed whenever we were in ear shot and complaining directly to the organiser that “Disney Princesses would be more appropriate for a Christmas Fare” to the extent that we were told on more than one occasion to move elsewhere in the building.

With it being most likely our last day of sunshine for 2018, the venue wasn’t set up ideally for costuming (face-clothed Jawas in particular) with the curtains in the main hall having been drawn which meant it was slightly too dark to navigate for the first few hours so I was very relieved when we eventually moved outside to loiter at the entrance doors.  Fortunately by the second half, the sun had dipped in the sky which meant the lights were on inside making it altogether a safer experience walking around the aisles…

The second half actually seemed busier at the outset, maybe people had bought everything they were after and had more time for photos, but it died off in the last hours and when some of the stall-holders started packing up I was grateful we called it quits as the heat was quickly getting to the unmanageable stage!
