Ruddington Village Market

Our Village Market began in February 2019 and now takes place on the first Saturday of every month. It’s a collaboration between The Ruddington Village Centre Partnership and The White Horse Inn.

They are run by both existing village retailers and popular market traders from across the region. There are also refreshments, children’s activities and live performances…

Ruddington’s March Market

After around two thousand people flocked to the inaugural Ruddington Village Market at The White Horse Inn a month ago, organisers are keeping their fingers crossed that this Saturday’s follow-up will be just as popular. Last time, many visitors continued their “Ruddy Good Day Out” with a stroll down Church Street and High Street to visit our shops and cafés, too. This is exactly what the ‘market’ team from Ruddington Village Centre Partnership (RVCP) had hoped would happen when they joined forces with Andy Hunt at the popular village pub to trial this initiative – aiming to…

“Amazing” Support For Our New Village Market

Organisers of our new Ruddington Village Market say they’re “gobsmacked” by the number of both villagers and visitors from further afield who turned out for today’s inaugural event. They estimate over two thousand people braved the icy conditions this morning to see what the new monthly market at The White Horse Inn had to offer. A queue began to form even before the ribbon cutting at 9am for the official launch – with the first ten punters through the gate claiming their free cotton carrier bag especially designed for the…

Final Preparations for Ruddington’s Village Market

With our brand new Ruddington Village Market now less than a fortnight away, promotional leaflets have begun dropping through local letterboxes this weekend to try to ensure that even our less internet-savvy residents get to hear about it! This exciting, new venture, hosted and co-organised by The White Horse Inn in conjunction with Stella Dickie and her Ruddington Village Centre Partnership “market” team, is intended to become a monthly fixture, so long as this first one on Saturday February 2nd is a success. It’s hoped that it will draw locals back into our…

Christmas Shopping in Ruddington

As the festive countdown continues, you COULD fight your way through the traffic and the crowds in the city centre – or risk ordering a last minute gift or your Christmas shopping online in the hope that it MIGHT just get here in time. But wouldn’t a stroll into our lovely village centre be a rather less stressful and more enjoyable experience? RUDDINGTON.info, in conjunction with Ruddington Village Centre Partnership (RVCP), is encouraging you to #ThinkRuddington and #ShopLocal before you leap into the car or click that mouse! From food and drink to…

Positive Reception for New Loyalty Card

The Ruddy Good Loyalty Card, launched at the start of this month, seems to be getting the thumbs-up from Ruddington village shoppers and traders so far. The FREE new card, which offers monthly #RUDDYGOODOFFERS at dozens of our village centre outlets, was the idea of the Ruddington Village Centre Partnership (RVCP). It is seen as a great way of encouraging residents and workers to spend their time and money here rather than elsewhere – in addition to attracting regular visitors to use our businesses by showcasing what they have to…

Ruddington’s Three Spices has again been recognised as one of the best in the country at this year’s  “Curry Life Awards” organised by Curry Life Magazine.
