Events

Magical grotto will be open from 3rd of December to 24th December. To avoid disappointment simply click on the link above to book your place as spaces are limited this year.


Make sure you follow us @xmascanterbury on twitter as soon as you can! We will be posting competitions, customer spot prizes, special offers, Coca cola truck updates and special events…

Keep your eyes peeled for the #secretsanta posts! These will give secret locations for customers to find prizes throughout the market and surrounding stores. There will be at least two to give away each day!


Father Christmas’ favourite Elves, ‘Hodgkins’ and ‘Pippa’, will help your children take part in our festive Elf Hunt! The cleverest children will spot the Elves and find the clues placed around the Christmas Market, in stores and around Whitefriars to receive a gift! Hodgkins and Pippa will have some very special prizes throughout the day for the Best Dressed Elves! Encourage your children to dress up as elves and take part in the Elf Hunt!


Late Night Opening until 7pm with live music and entertainment.

Live music and entertainment throughout the market will be announced via websites, facebook pages and twitter.

Other dates will be added when confirmed.


After last year’s hugely successful day, we would love even more families to take part to break last years record.

Throughout the duration of this year’s Christmas market take your ‘Christmas Jumper Selfies’ in front of the selfie board to win lots of amazing prizes..
