Durham Christmas Festival is the perfect opportunity to tick loads of items off your Christmas shopping list.
With four markets, and around 400 independent traders in the city centre throughout the festival. You can visit our Craft & Gift Marquee on Palace Green, the Regional Producers’ Market in the wonderfully atmospheric Cloisters of Durham Cathedral, Durham Market Hall – home to 40 local independent businesses, and the Festive Outdoor Market in Durham Market Place.
The Children’s Lantern Parade is one of the highlights of Durham Christmas Festival and to many families ‘the beginning’ of the Christmas season – it will take place on the afternoon of Saturday 4th December 2021.
With buskers, groups, bands, choirs and even orchestras providing seasonal music throughout the city centre, bringing a real Christmassy feel. There'll be performers in Durham Market Place, on Palace Green and in Walkergate. A full schedule will be published nearer the festival.
