Free festive fairs and markets in Newcastle
There’s nothing more festive than warming your hands around a mug of mulled wine and browsing the stalls of a Christmas market.
Christmas at the Grainger Market
Relax and enjoy this wonderful shopping experience away from the usual hassles.

While the rest of the world are ticking iPods and Wii consoles off their list, you can get back to the cosy feeling of handmade foods and buying special one-off gifts for your family and friends.
This market brings us gourmet ingredients and a very real taste of Europe. You can get a currywurst from Germany, waffles from Holland, paella from Spain and crepes – both sweet and savoury from France.

The Christmas Market takes place at Grey’s Monument, Grey Street and Grainger Street. The Christmas market will be held from 11 December to 17 December 2017 inclusive.
This market welcomes stall holders from closer to home. There are beers from local microbreweries, home-made jams, delicious cakes and handmade chocolates.

And you know if it’s at our Christmas Market it’s going to be that little bit more special.
