Add Durham City Traditional Christmas Festival and Market to your Itinerary

Durham's award-winning, annual Traditional Christmas Festival returns from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th December, with a wide range of festive entertainment for all the family, in and around the World Heritage Site of the Cathedral and the Castle.


Whilst we cannot confirm details of the markets and entertainment at this stage, we hope to bring back the successful markets and entertainment of the 2013 Christmas Festival, but all markets, events and entertainment may be subject to change.


In 2013 the event included a huge, heated Craft and Gift Marquee on Palace Green with over 190 stalls across all three days of the event, and also in the Cathedral Cloisters, a Local Food Producers Market featuring another 30 traders will operate on both Friday and Saturday. Alongside the markets, there was a wide range of festive events and entertainment for all the family, including live music throughout the city centre and carol services in the Cathedral.
