Welcome to the City of Durham Christmas Festival
Friday 6 December - Sunday 8 December 2013
Durham's award-winning, annual Christmas Festival will return in 2013 with a wide range of festive entertainment for all the family in and around the World Heritage Site of the Cathedral and the Castle.
The huge, heated Craft and Gift Marquee on Palace Green features over 190 stalls across all three days of the event. In the Cathedral Cloisters, a Local Food Producers Market featuring another 30 traders will operate on both Friday and Saturday. In the Cathedral itself, Carols for All services take place on both Saturday and Sunday.
Weekend entertainment on Palace Green, between the Cathedral and the Castle, will include live reindeer, a static falconry display, juggling and balloon-modelling, a lantern procession and St Nicholas children's service, the Seven Stories reading chair and performances from a wide range of local entertainers and musicians throughout the city centre.
