Christmas Market at St Edmundsbury Cathedral...
From Thursday 25th November to Saturday 27th November, St Edmundsbury Cathedral will welcome all to their Christmas Market, open from 10am to 4.30pm.
Stallholders from Suffolk and beyond will showcase their products, from micro-brewery beer and oak gifts to hand made soaps and chocolates. Visitors will get the chance to browse stalls while also taking in the beautiful setting of the Cathedral. In addition to the shopping experience, carol singing will take place daily at 3pm, with the Haverhill Silver Band joining on Saturday 27th November.
“We’re excited to host a Christmas Market and invite both regular and new visitors into our beautiful building,” said Marketing Manager, Catherine Rayson. “The stallholders joining us across the three days of the event represent the exciting small businesses we have in the Bury St Edmunds area and we’re very much looking forward to helping them showcase their brilliantly crafted products.”
In addition to the Christmas Market, Tower Tours can be pre-booked via stedscathedral.org and are available each day at 10.30 am and 1.30 pm. These tours are a special experience offering a unique look behind the walls of the Cathedral. The pinnacle of the tour comes following the ascent of the Cathedral tower, which at 202 steps offers unparalleled views of the Abbey Gardens and town beyond.
The Christmas Market is a new venture for the Cathedral and is part of a schedule of events being offered by a range of organisations throughout Bury St Edmunds over the festive period. The event follows current government guidelines for COVID-19 and will be fully stewarded.
