Whitby Christmas Festival and Market 16 – 18 November 2018

Last chance to book your Market Stall

Great excitement is building around this year's Whitby Christmas Festival, which takes place 16 – 18th November.

At the heart of the festival is the wonderful Christmas Market, with a spectacular range of stalls.

"We have had a fabulous show of interest in the Market this year, with many local artists and artisan businesses booking a stall as well as many tasty food and drink outlets all wanting to showcase their wonderful products" said Chair of Whitby Town Council Events Committee Councillor Phil Trumper. "We have more stalls booked than ever before but there is still room for just a few more businesses to join us".

Alongside the Market there will be a spectacular range of local talents to entertain the Festival goers, including music, local bands, dance, storytelling, a "First World War Fashion" show and so much more in the Festival Marquee. If you are part of a group who would like to perform on our festival stage please do get in touch.

The weekend will open on the Friday night with the magnificent Community Lantern Procession. Yorkshire Coast Radio will present a fantastic night of music from their stage before helping the crowds to count down to the switch on of the Town Christmas Lights.

There will be a spectacular firework display on Saturday 17th and other activities, including fairground rides will run throughout the weekend.

Christmas Market Stalls are booking up quickly, though there are still a few available. Anyone interested in taking a stall or getting involved should contact Whitby Town Council on 01947 820227. Stall holder application forms can be downloaded from the Whitby Town Council web site.
