Where better to experience a festive and funfilled
Christmas Market this winter than in the
beautiful, historic town of Oundle? For the
fourth year running, Oundle Town Council will fill the
market place with a variety of stalls selling a diverse
range of Christmas food, gifts and crafts - everything
you need from cards and decorations to charcuterie,
gin and handbags! Starting at 12noon on Saturday 3th
December the fun will last all afternoon until 7pm and
the town’s Christmas lights will be turned on at 5.30pm
by the Town Mayor.

Be prepared for a merry experience with brass bands
and choirs singing around the Christmas tree as well as
children’s fairground rides. Masses of mulled wine and
mince pies and other street food delicacies will keep
you warm. With free parking and the town’s fabulous
independent shops and cafés open for late night
shopping, there is plenty of opportunity to relax, soak up
the atmosphere and to find that ‘perfect’ gift.

Oundle is one of a growing list of towns and cities across
the UK that organise an annual Christmas Market for
friends and locals to meet up on a cold winter’s evening,
enjoy traditional entertainment and to stock up on
delicious Christmas goodies. Often thought of as being
predominantly German, Christmas Markets were, in fact,
very popular in the UK until Oliver Cromwell banned the
celebration of Christmas altogether. Thankfully, times
have moved on and Oundle Christmas Market is set to
be a truly memorable highlight of the Christmas season.

Keep an eye on the website for details at

Oundle Christmas MARKET
Saturday 3rd December 12noon - 7pm
