This festive market takes place at St Peter’s Church from 10am to 1pm and has a large variety of home-made Christmas foods, presents and cards for you to pick up for that special someone!

There will also be an exciting visit from Santa Claus who will be in his grotto during the event waiting to take people’s wish lists. Why not grab cup of coffee or tea with yummy mince pies and listen to Christmas music by St Peter’s acclaimed choir.

Perfect for those looking for that something unique for Christmas, this producer’s market has both local and regional crafters on site. From Christmas crafts to jewellery this market is one not to miss for those who love picking up handmade gifts for Christmas. Whilst you’re there enjoy the Carol Singers and why not take the children to visit Father Christmas in his grotto! All of this is available from 10am to 5pm.

RNLI College Christmas Market, Poole

Head to the Dorset Coast this December to visit the town of Poole. Thanks to the RNLI this coastal quaint town will be hosting the market from 11am to 4pm and you can pick up a variety of gifts from homemade arts and crafts, jewellery, local preserves and delicious fudges and chocolates. There will be around 40 exhibitors so plenty to choose from!

Keep an eye out for Santa who will be arriving on a lifeboat and for the children there will be face painting and arts and crafts to keep them busy during the day!

For the adults why not pick up a glass of mulled wine or some festive treats and sit back and enjoy the live music on offer.
