Extended Dates for St Albans Christmas Market

Extended Dates for St Albans Christmas Market

St Albans Christmas Market is being extended due to popular demand and will run for four weeks right up until 23 December - the Saturday before Christmas. The market is set to start on Saturday 25 November, followed by a spectacular launch party on Sunday 26 November to coincide with the Christmas Lights Switch-on. 

Chalet-style stalls located in the picturesque Vintry Garden next to St Albans Cathedral will sell festive gifts, stocking-fillers, decorations and treats. Visitors will be able to feast on food and drink, including mulled wine, hot mince pies, Bratwurst sausages and speciality beer. They will also be treated to a range of entertainment and have the opportunity to visit Santa’s Grotto. 

Last year the market attracted the largest number of visitors ever - 118,000 people across the 25 days it was open. This was up 15% on the 103,000 who visited the market the previous year. As in previous years, the market ended on the last Sunday before Christmas Eve with a week left to go before Christmas Day.

Following feedback from visitors, it has been decided to run the market right up to the last Saturday before Christmas that is over a longer period of 29 days. The new dates are subject to planning approval.
