Christmas and beyond at Blackthorn and Willow

We will be holding a musical event for the festive season here at Blackthorn and Willow: on Thursday 21st of December we will have music and carols from 4.00 to 6.00 lead by by Rose on piano and Rowan on the fiddle. Come and join in – or just sit and listen while enjoying a few Christmas snacks.

As with previous events, other musicians – and singers – will be most welcome.

Along with the music, we will also be offering on that day, discounts on a selection of our craft items as well as on a range of foods and drinks, so it will definitely be worth a visit if you are on the lookout for a few bargains.

And another couple of dates for your diary: if you would like some Glenarm smoked salmon for Christmas then please let me know by Monday 18th and it will be ready for you to collect from Wednesday 20th.

And if you want some of our ‘Blackthorn Breads’ over the Christmas period then please order loaves by Thursday 21st; you will be able to collect them from midday onwards on Saturday 23rd.  That will not only be the last time that I bake this year but the last time until early spring as we will be closing the shop on the evening of the 23rd and re-opening in March.

A range of loaves – sourdough, sweet and savoury focaccia and poppy seed loaves

The choice of loaves for the 23rd December will be sourdough, mixed grain cobs, sweet focaccia, savoury focaccia and poppy seed loaves.

Many thanks to all our customers over the past year.  We will look forward to seeing you all again when we re-open in the spring.
