Looking for the ultimate festive shopping experience? This December, ARC is the place to be as we play host to a range of wonderful stalls providing one-off gifts and beautiful hand crafted items – the perfect Christmas presents!
As winter sets in, we’ve curated some of the finest independent crafters, makers and shopkeepers that the North East has to offer.
While we are at the market ARC have two performances of The Tin Soldier– see http://arconline.co.uk/whats-on/family-christmas-at-arc/the-tin-soldier
