Add Durham City Traditional Christmas Festival and Market to your Itinerary

From Friday 6th December to Sunday 8th December 2013, Durham City’s Traditional Christmas Festival returns.


This event brings a wide range of festive entertainment to the World Heritage site around the Castle and Cathedral, and through the City Centre. The highlight of the event is a large marquee on Palace Green featuring over 190 stalls. Durham Cathedral Cloisters hosts a local food producers market on the Friday and Saturday.


There are also a whole host of other events and entertainment including reindeer, static falconry display, juggling, balloon modelling, storytelling by the team from Seven Stories in Newcastle, and lots of live music performed throughout the city centre.


One of the highlights of the Christmas Festival is the Children’s Lantern Parade from the Market Place to a special St Nicholas Children’s service in the Cathedral.
