25.11.2011 to 26.11.2011 18:00 to 16:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Lausanne
Event Type: Other
Location: Avenue de l'Eglise-Anglaise 1, 1000
Price: Free entry.

The English "Christ Church" in Lausanne are hosting a Christmas market on Friday 25th November (18.00- 20.00) and Saturday 26th November (10.00 - 16.00). There will be lots of British type baked goods and crafty gift ideas for Christmas and I will be there with some of my cheeses.

At the moment I'm not sure if I will be there on Friday evening, but if I'm not, they will at least have some of my Godminster waxed cheddars on sale. These will have a BBF date of well after Christmas. I will also have a selection of other cheeses, crackers, chutneys and marmalades etc.

The market is a social get together but also to raise funds for the upkeep of the church.

If I do manage to get there for Friday evening I'll be up for a beer or wine again at the local bistro. See you there!

The church is just 10 minutes walk from the main train station in Lausanne.

RSVP'd Maybe: 2 (1 members and 1 guests)

Re: English Church Lausanne, Christmas market

Every single time I sign up for any thing, something happens and I'm outta luck.
This time I ain't signin' up at all and just maybe I'll be fortunate enough to enjoy a properly British christmas market and get some decent cheese !!

So I won't see y'all there, until perhaps the day.

I know exactly how you feel Sky. The same thing has happened to me on a couple of occasions now.

I will make a real effort to get here though as I want to get some cheese for the Neuchatel Christmas dinner. May be going to France to get the supplies on the Saturday though (need as many bodies as possible to get our full allowance so need OH and son to make up the numbers)

Grumpy will you have any Wensleydale by any chance? I am going to make a Christmas cake and want some cheese to have with it.
We may want some other stuff too but won't have a list unrtil Odile gets back from UK. If I can't make it down there I'll se if DB and MN will be able to bring it.

I will send grumpy a PM later.

I don't think you'll need to get any specially for that lunch.

And I doubt my new delivery will be in in time for this event, so no Wensleydale I'm afraid.

The market's on until 5 but I have a poorly member of staff at the market in Zurich and I was planning on leaving just after 2 to take over from him, but I'll stay certainly until 2.30 - and I should have plenty of cheese left, as well as zero calorie Clotted Cream Fudge
