Bath Christmas Market
Update 17/09/21 - Bath and North East Somerset Council have sadly announced that the Bath Christmas Market will not be going ahead this year.
'The safe-running of the Market has, and always will be, our number one priority and this requires a significant number of security and logistics staff. The knock-on effect of Brexit and COVID-19 have caused a national recruitment crisis in this field and therefore, Bath & North East Somerset has taken the decision to reshape Christmas in Bath for this year. For this reason, we are unable to move forward with Bath Christmas Market as originally planned. We will be hoping to announce some festive activities in the coming weeks.
You will still be able to get your festive favourites from our stallholders and throughout November and December, our website will be transformed to shine a spotlight on all the Artisans that would have been showcasing their skills during the Market.
From the whole team, we apologise for any inconvenience this causes and we really hope to see you all in 2022.'
Bath and North East Somerset Council are now planning for this year’s Christmas market to go ahead from Wednesday 24th November to Sunday 19th December. They will continue to monitor Government guidelines very closely all the way through the planning stages.
With over 160 twinkling chalets spread out across Bath’s picturesque Georgian streets, Bath Christmas Market is the perfect place to do a spot of Christmas shopping.
From unique homeware to personalised presents, Christmas decorations, handcrafted jewellery and more, you’re guaranteed to find something special for your loved ones. With so many local makers and designers showcasing their artisan gifts, you can tick off everything on your Christmas list all in one place and feel reassured that you’re supporting Bath’s small businesses.
Throughout the Market, you’ll find tasty traditional food to satisfy any appetite and of course the caramelised nuts and aromatic mulled wine to keep you toasty while you browse.
A memorable day out in a stunning setting, there’s always something new to discover at Bath Christmas Market.
