Great Yarmouth Christmas Markets

Celebrate Christmas in Great Yarmouth this year with a whole month of Christmas Markets! 

Great Yarmouth Christmas Markets will take place from the 30th November up to 23rd December this year, with the Market Square filled with specially decorated wooden chalets and gazebos selling a huge variety of festive goodies! 

The popular Christmas Fayre will kick off the festive month with stalls in the Minster, Market Place and the Priory on 30th November to 2nd December. This will coincide with the Christmas Light ‘Switch On’, which will include entertainment live from radio station ‘The Beach’ plus a free firework display afterwards.

Visitors to the Christmas Fayre can also enjoy live musical entertainment over the weekend with performances from Treble Clef, The Testosa-Tones plus a special Christmas Carol performance by the Lardal Kantori Norwegian Choir. Children can enjoy the thrill of a funfair and an animated projection on a town centre building! 

During the rest of December, the Nordic inspired wooden chalets will be filled with festive gifts and treats, making it super easy for you to find that perfect gift for just about every family member! Whilst your browsing there will be plenty of festive entertainment to help you soak up the Christmas atmosphere.

Other attractions in the town centre during December will include Santa’s Post Office, Santa’s Grotto, Late Night Shopping and the Christmas Tree and Crib Festival!

Don't forget, there's free parking after 4pm every day and from 12noon on Wednesdays as well as all day on Sunday in selected Great Yarmouth Borough Council operated car parks, so you can save money on parking that you can spend on shopping for presents instead.

More details and information will be made available nearer the time, keep an eye on the ‘Events’ page for updates…
