~ A Quintessential English Christmas Market ~

Bakewell Christmas market weekend will host around 100 stalls and gazebos situated on Market Street, Granby Road and Riverside Crescent, many of which are from our beautiful Peak District.

We are proudly supporting British Legion Riders displaying their motorbikes on Bridge Street, Age UK Bakewell Day Centre and Weston Park Hospital will also have charity stalls on the market.

Bring your friends and family to the beautiful Peak District Town of Bakewell and enjoy a weekend of seasonal entertainment over the weekend. Our quintessential English Christmas Market will feature some traders from our famous Bakewell Monday market alongside a mouth watering selection of speciality festive foods and wines from the Peak District, arts and crafts, gifts for all the family and much more. We are sure you will be spoiled for choice.

Santa will arrive in a carriage with Betty and Poppy, the Shetland Ponies in time for the Christmas Tree Light Switch On 4.45 in Bath Gardens. Join in the countdown and British Legion Riders will rev their engines and switch on their headlights too.

We have family entertainment during the weekend, look out for the Disney Characters with Rachels Magical Entertainment timings and details will be updated.
