MEDIA RELEASE - Post COVID events starting to come back!


Fossey’s Distillery presents their first ever Twilight Christmas Market.

This Saturday December 11th will see Fossey’s Distillery host their first ever Twilight Christmas Market held in Risbey Lane directly alongside the Fossey’s venue at 110 Eighth Street Mildura.

A weekend normally reserved for their big end of year laneway event “Fossey’s Festivale” where 250 people would attend the venue and laneway for live music, alternative entertainment along with food and drink, Fossey’s this year have decided to continue with the laneway event tradition but with something different.

“This year we have decided to hold a Twilight Christmas Market” says Fossey’s manager Cherie “We have really enjoyed attending markets ourselves in recent months and we wanted to hold an event like we normally would, and so a market seemed like something we wanted to try.”

Fossey’s, like all hospitality business, have struggled and pivoted through the ongoing issues and restrictions with COVID and had genuinely thought they were through the worst of it when business was almost back to normal earlier in the year.

“We had obviously had a few snap lockdowns earlier in the year, but by and large things mostly felt back to normal trading,” continues Cherie “We had even managed to host a laneway event in May without any hiccups and there was a real vibe in the air that events were back and we could start to live our lives again. We were about to hold our biggest event of the year being World Gin Day, just as the serious lockdowns started again and once again obliterated our industry.”

Fossey’s, like most event organisers, are nervous when putting shows on and with the uncertainty of restrictions and border issues, they just could not see a big December show going ahead like they normally would.

“Amidst all of the challenges of the year, we are looking forward to ending the year with an event, having a full venue and laneway and seeing everything come together this Saturday.”

Fossey’s Twilight Christmas Market will feature local stall holders along the laneway with food and bar drinks available plus live music performed by Iwan and Andrea.

“It’s a fantastic way to shop local this year,’ says Cherie “You get to have some of your favourite market stalls in a unique location with drinks, food and music available for a bit of a party vibe whilst you socialise and get Christmas shopping done at the same time.”

Fossey’s Twilight Christmas Market will be held this Saturday December 11th 2021 from 4pm – 9pm in Risbey Lane at 110 Eighth Street Mildura.
