Durham City’s Traditional Christmas Festival returns from Friday 4th to Saturday 6th December.
Based around the Cathedral and Castle, as well as other city centre locations, it provides excellent Christmas shopping opportunities alongside festive entertainment.
The Craft and Gift Marquee on Palace Green will feature over 190 stalls, while 30 regional food and drink producers will be in the Cloisters of Durham Cathedral. There will also be an outdoor market in Durham Market Place and more than 50 more traders in Durham’s Market Hall.
As well as markets, there is a wide range of entertainment and activities for all the family, including carol services in the Cathedral, live music performances and bands, live reindeer and children’s entertainment. The Children’s Lantern Procession on the Saturday afternoon is a highlight, leading the children to the Cathedral for the St Nicholas service.
