The Christmas market included a variety of local independent craft stalls, mulled wine and breakfast and Christmas baps. The festive craft market was hosted in partnership with Pinnock Gin, which is also based in Kineton.
The Christmas market event also saw more than £600 raised for the cafe's chosen charity, the Alzheimer's Society.
A festive MINI electric car decorated in over 2,000 smart twinkly LED lights also made a stop at Gilks' Garage Café for the Christmas market.
The MINI Electric is part of a project launched by Nicholas ’Nico’ Martin, who made his third stop on a five-week tour, to spread festive cheer and raise money for three charities - the MS Trust, Duchenne UK and Alzheimer's Society.
The project is being supported by MINI UK, Festive Lights and Twinkly. Special thanks to MINI UK for providing their all new MINI Electric, Twinkly for providing the app-controlled lights, and Festive Lights for installing the lights on the car.
