Nottingham Christmas Markets

Nottingham Winter Wonderland

With the grand City Hall as its picture-perfect backdrop, Nottingham Winter Wonderland is a must-do destination this Christmas. The ‘Old England’ themed event features more than 50 Victorian style cabin stalls, as well as two winter bars, a bandstand and ice rink to keep you entertained. For that extra sprinkle of festiveness, there’s 100s of Christmas trees, timber decked walkways and magical snow all around to really set the scene.

Over 50 independent traders bring the spirit of Christmas and their festive-themed goods to Nottingham in their ye olde style cabins. Expect leather goods, handmade winter woolies, Artisan cheeses, handmade cakes and an assortment of sweets and treats.

Families can get their skate on over the festive period and be rest assured it’s going to be the ever as it’s even bigger than last year’s! A truly magical experience, watch as the ice rink barrier glows with LEDs in the handrail and enjoy the new ski lodge designed boot room for when you need to put on another pair of socks.

Patchings Christmas Market

Feel the friendly warm buzz and pick up some wonderful handmade gifts at Patchings Christmas Market. More than 50 beautiful stalls fill the art centre this year, all run by talented artists and craftspeople.

Christmas Art & Food Market, Harley Gallery

If you’re looking for something a bit different - perhaps a gift for that hard-to-buy-for-relative or a very-special-someone - head to Harley Gallery on the last weekend of November.

This arty Christmas market includes a collection of unusual gifts, all uniquely designed and hand crafted. Stalls feature jewellery, clothing and print works by a mix of new and established artists.

There’s also a tempting food market, with Welbeck Farm Shop selling its wares. Choose from cheeses and chocolates, breads and beers for all your gifting and hosting needs this winter.
