Market Harborough
U3A Millennium Tapestry

Since 1987 the town has held this event, usually on the first Friday in December, and for the last two years of the 20th Century, the whole of the High Street has been closed to traffic with the shops staying open until 9.00pm.The Square is filled with charity stalls and there are competitions and raffles. There are many bands and entertainments as well as Father Christmas and rides for the children. It is a wonderful start to the Christmas season with real trees decorated with lights suspended on many of the buildings and the special lights in Church Street adding to the atmosphere. Open Harborough sometimes happens in spring or early autumn. Once again there are charity stalls, rides, bands and competitions. The Morris dancers appear at both events and the old Grammar School is decorated with flowers. Both occasions have a terrific feel of community spirit and draw thousands of visitors.
