Leicester's Christmas Market


Leicester's Christmas Market

Gorgeous gifts, quirky crafts, perfect presents and festive family fun are all on offer this year at Leicester’s Christmas Market in the city’s New Market Square.

With stalls featuring artisan gifts, fabulous food and tasty treats, you’re sure to find something unique for under the Christmas tree. 

Held in Leicester’s New Market Square, Leicester’s first Christmas Market will also feature delicious food from around the globe as well as a fully stocked bar and seating area.

The market is the perfect place to find Christmas gifts. Stock up on winter warmers like hats, socks and scarves; find a handmade gift from Leicestershire independent traders; buy a unique present – from Moroccan leathers to Turkish textiles, and please the foodie in your life with a range of speciality teas, artisan coffees, olives, cheese, smoked meats and even customised chocolate gifts on offer!

If all that shopping wears you out, refuel at one of the many food and drink stalls. Traditional Christmas market fare includes German sausages, crepes and gourmet hot chocolates to warm you up no matter how icy it gets. Treat yourself to a festive tipple from the gin, cocktail and prosecco bar, find your Christmas spirit over a glass of mulled wine or enjoy the atmosphere with a coffee.

What’s more, each week there’ll be a host of entertainment and activities to fill the whole family with festive cheer!
