Whitefriars Christmas Market

This year we are adding a little difference to the Christmas Market... We are holding some seasonal Theme Days! 

On these days we welcome you to dress up and take part in all the fun festivities throughout Whitefriars.


There will be merry music and dazzling entertainment throughout the market but after a long week planning your Christmas, we thought that Saturdays deserved a little something extra especially designed with family time in mind.  




Saturday 23rd November.


This is the Grand Opening of our new Whitefriars Christmas Market.

The market will be ready to showcase some amazing gifts for your Christmas shopping and for you to enjoy the 

range of festive food and drink


Father Christmas and his helpers will parade through the market arriving at his Grotto around midday where he will take up his residence until the 23rd December. Children can then start getting their letters ready and post them in the letterbox in Whitefriars Square. 


Take the opportunity to jump in the Photo Booth for a festive family memory and try out the unique 

Pavegen powered Christmas tree lighting in the Whitefriars Arcade.




Saturday 30th November. 


Enter our Christmas Card competition! You'd be crazy not to with a whopping £500 shopping voucher for 1st prize up for grabs! 

Entry is easy.. All you have to do is design and make your cards and post them in the post box by Father Christmas' Grotto -  His Helpers will be on hand around Whitefriars with supplies to help make some too. You can post your cards any day whilst the market is on but today there will be 

craft activities to help you get creative!




Saturday 7th December.


Prince and Princesses Day! A truly magical scene will unfold as the square becomes a winter kingdom for the day! 

Families are able to dress up in their favourite royal attire and take part in Prince and Princesses Day... 

Don't worry about feeling silly or out of place.. our team will be dressed up too to get you in the swing of things


Take your photo at the picture point at the back of the Grotto and post it online at www.whitefriars.eu to enter another competition with lots of great prizes! With giveaways and fun spot prizes throughout the day - this is one royal event not to be missed!




Saturday 14th December.


Whitefriars Character Day! An opportunity for your family to dress up as characters from fairytale or film and come along to the Christmas market. Take part today with our festive team of helpers and enjoy a fun filled day of sparkly character fun

post them on line at www.whitefriars.eu to enter the competition with lots of great prizes!




Saturday 21st December


Elf and Pixie Parade! With the Big Man leaving in a few days (December the 23rd) we would like to fill Whitefriars with as many children and adults dressed as Winter Elves and Pixies as possible! 


Father Christmas may be feeling a little homesick, so we wanted to make it feel just like home for him before he leaves for his world tour. Take your picture at the picture point at the back of the Grotto then enter the competition online at www.whitefriars.eu 

and Father Christmas will pick the winners! 


There will be photographers from our local newspapers looking for the best dressed... So make sure you are in costume and ready to go with our team giving out on the spot prizes throughout the day!
