Back Forward


Welcome to the City of Durham Christmas Festival

Friday 4 December - Sunday 6 December 2015


We are now looking forward to Durham's award-winning, annual Christmas Festival returning for 2015 - from Friday 4th December for three days.

Tickets for the Craft and Gift Marquee are now on sale - please click on the button on the right of this page.  Prices remain as they were last year.  

At the entrance, tickets for the Craft and Gift Marquee will cost £3 on Friday and £4 on both Saturday and Sunday. However, if you buy your ticket online in advance you will get a 50 pence saving on every ticket bought (that is £2.50 for Friday and £3.50 for Saturday and Sunday).  

Please note, tickets are not required for the Producers' Market in the Cloisters of Durham Cathedral.

Please return to our website during the year for information about the event, the traders, entertainment and how to get to Durham to make the most of the Festival.  

For Traders

We are no longer accepting Expression of Interest forms.  The first tranche of offers have been sent, the second tranche will follow shortly.

Thank you  for your interest in Durham City Christmas Festival.
