  • Christmas guide

    The starting pistol that is the John Lewis advert has sounded and so we gird our loins for another Christmas season. Even the festive refuseniks among us will struggle not to feel a small tingle of excitement when the Christmas lights are switched on and the choir stalls fill up for carol concerts. Marlborough lends itself perfectly to the annual orgy of celebration with its tempting calendar of events, innovative and original gifts and baubles from our independent traders, great food and drink and the menus and venues which offer respite from the kitchen. As the big shopping centres turn into assault courses of consumer madness, keeping Christmas local has never made more sense.
