Eddington Festive Market
Friday 24th – Sunday 26th November 2023
Location: Eddington Square
It’s time to pop on your bobble hat and explore the handmade treasures at Eddington’s first festive market.
From 24-26 November 2023, Eddington Square will come alive with local, independent traders offering a range of bespoke arts and crafts that will make the perfect gift.
Throughout the three-day event you will be able to enjoy mulled wine and a host of other drinks served from a traditional bus, and warming food in the shape of Yorkshire pudding wraps, German sausages, and wood-fired pizzas!
With live festive music, a visit from Santasaurus (Saturday 25 November from midday-3pm), and two curling rinks (£10 for a 30-minute group session) – this experience will start your seasonal celebrations in style.
For the keen crafters who want to get involved, there will also be workshops running throughout the weekend where you will have the opportunity to create your own gifts. The workshops take place across the three days at various times and venues – click links below for more details and to book. They include:
