Hillsborough Christmas Market - Festive foodies and Christmas Crafts!

🎄 Hillsborough Christmas Market 🎄

We are very excited that Hillsborough Christmas Market is returning to The Dark Walk at Hillsborough Fort, on Friday 13th December 2019 from 3pm – 9pm.
Come and join us once again for a taste of the festive spirit at the market but also in the village as the shops are getting involved too and staying open late. It is really a pleasure to shop away from the city and big town crowds in such a beautiful and idyllic village. 
Local school choirs and musicians will delight and entertain as they open the market for us. Santa himself has even promised to pop in to say hello and check out the offerings from the 46 stalls of local design, art, craft, artisan food and street food. We are sure he will not be able to resist picking up a few presents for Mrs Clause and his elves, and he will certainly not go hungry as we have a fabulous line-up of artisan street food to keep his energy levels up for his biggest day of the year. 
Children can even make their own unique Christmas Tree Decorations with Kindergardencooks.
The schedule for the market is below so you can plan your visit. Scroll further down to whet your appetite with those trading.
