Welcome to the City of Durham Christmas Festival

Friday 30 November* - Sunday 2 December 2018

Durham's award-winning Traditional Christmas Festival returns from Friday 30th November 2018 for three days, with a wide range of festive entertainment for all the family in and around the World Heritage Site of the Cathedral and the Castle and throughout the City Centre. 


This site will be updated with information about markets and events at the Festival nearer the time.  Please return later in the year for more information.


We're no longer inviting Expressions of Interest to trade in the Craft and Gift Marquee or the Regional Producers' Market at Durham Christmas Festival 2018.  

Come back to our website nearer the dates of the Festival to find out who will be trading and how Durham Christmas Festival will help you get in a thoroughly festive mood in the run up to Christmas.
