Whitby Christmas Festival

Whitby Town Council has made the decision to hold a Christmas Market which will be taking place from 26th to 28th November 2021, subject to government restrictions relating to Covid19.

Unfortunately owing to the global Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, last year's Whitby Christmas Festival didn't take place due to government restrictions. However, in light of recent government announcements, the council is hopeful for a 2021 market and preparations have now begun.

This year's Christmas Festival will be held on a smaller scale, without the associated events such as Entertainment Marquee, Festival Stage, Street Theatre or Lantern Parade.

Stallholders are now being asked to apply by Wednesday 31st July for their place at the 2021 market.

If, in the event this year's market cannot go ahead due to the ongoing pandemic, we have plans in place to ensure any money stallholders have paid towards their stall will be refunded in full.

For more up to date information, please give the Christmas Festival Twitter (@FestXmas) a follow and for more in depth enquiries, please don't hesitate to get in touch with the Town Council.

Each year we strive to build on our successes and make improvements where possible. We would love to hear your feedback so we can make the festival even better in the future.

Thank you for your support.
