Medieval Quarter Slow Sundays is back right in time for Christmas where there will be tasty seasonal treats and themed workshops to choose from.
Kick off your Christmas shopping slowly and consciously in Limerick’s Medieval Quarter
On Sunday, November 20, the Medieval Quarter Slow Sundays return to Treaty City Brewery on Nicholas Street, this time with a festive twist.
Since its inception, the ethos of Slow Sundays has been to create a relaxing environment where people can shop slowly and consciously from local businesses. The focus is on shopping mindfully so that rushed decisions are avoided and more sustainable choices are made by the consumer.
As the Medieval Quarter Slow Sundays event on Sunday, November 20 will be the last Slow Sundays of the year, it is the perfect opportunity to kick off your Christmas shopping while supporting local. There will be 10 businesses selling their products both inside and outside the brewery and, not only will there be a wide selection of unique and handcrafted products to choose from, but you’ll also get to meet the faces behind these small local businesses.
Co-Founder of Slow Sundays, Catriona O’ Donoghue, says, “As winter sets in and Christmas approaches, we are particularly conscious of doing what we can to encourage people to shop local this festive season. We’re all too aware of the many business closures that have happened locally in recent months so we wanted to provide a space where the public can come and champion the incredible small businesses that we have on our doorstep in Limerick.”
As well as stalls to browse, there will be tasty seasonal treats and themed workshops to choose from. After selling out at the past three events, the Paints & Craft Beers Experience is back on the menu. This is a hands-on workshop where you’ll create your own festive masterpiece. In addition, there will be a Christmas card-making workshop on the day where pressed flowers will be used to create unique cards for family and friends.
Co-Founder of Slow Sundays, Stephen Cunneen, says, “Back by popular demand, we’ll have our seasonal mulled red ale flowing on November 20 so wrap up and come ring in the festive season with us on Nicholas Street. We’ve been blown away by the support we’ve received this year for Slow Sundays and we’ve no doubt that the public will come out in force again to support the wonderful local businesses that make our communities far more colourful and vibrant places to live and work. We say, “Forget Black Friday, Support Slow Sundays.”
The next Slow Sundays is on Sunday, November 20 from 11 am -3 pm. All information can be found on the ‘Medieval Quarter Limerick’ Facebook or Instagram Page.
