About this event

The award winning Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre is now in its 18th year and gets bigger and better everytime. With over 300 stalls situated all around the historic Georgian town centre, it has the perfect mix of old and new.
The historic centre of Bury St Edmunds will, once again, be transformed into the wonderful Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre with colourful stalls selling local produce and crafts as well as traders from around the UK and mainland Europe.
The Christmas Fayre has something for everyone and includes a children’s opening parade and fireworks, cookery theatre and food area in the Cathedral grounds, entertainment, free children’s activities and a fun fair on Angel Hill and in the Abbey Gardens.
The Angel Hill area of Bury St Edmunds, with its magnificient cathedral, medieval Abbey Gate and links with Charles Dickens, is the ideal setting for a traditional Christmas Fayre.
An added attraction is the town’s nearby cosmopolitan shopping centre with its great mix of famous name stores and independent shops, cafés and restaurants.
New for 2019, the fayre will feature a Farmers and Cookware Market in the Buttermarket on Thursday 21 and Sunday 24 November. On offer will be a wide selection of high quality produce from East Anglian based farmers, growers and producers. The Farmers and Cookware market will feature beers, ciders and perry, cakes and brownies, butter and cheeses, honeys, chilli sauces, crisps, meat, gourmet mushrooms, soaps, cookware, pottery and plants and flowers – to list just a few.
In addition, the weekly market will take place on Thursday 21 November so that you can stock up on your usual provisions.
We have increased the number of stalls in the popular Cathedral Courtyard area of the Christmas Fayre. All of the stalls in this area will sell food, beverages or locally made products and the area will, once again, feature cookery demonstrations from a range of top chefs.
New for 2019, there will be a community performance stage on the bowling green in the Abbey Gardens, providing entertainment throughout the fayre from local groups and performers.
At 5.30pm on Thursday 21 November, schoolchildren with giant puppets will set off from the Arc shopping centre and parade through the town, followed by a fireworks in the Abbey Gardens display starting at 8pm.
Bury St Edmunds has good value parking close to the town centre and a Park & Ride service will operate. For groups and coach parties, there will be coach drop-off points close to Angel Hill on all four days. Coaches will be able to park all day for a small charge, there will also be a free taxi service provided for drivers to take them into town and a £5 meal voucher for all pre-booked coaches.

    The best Xmas market I have been to (and I have been to Bath, London, Winchester, Worcester, Cardiff and Lincoln), great atmosphere, friendly and helpful people and stands and a great range of stands with lots of handmade British products. The music on the stage was great too and all by local bands and people. Will definitely make it an annual feature but will visit on Thursday night as I'm told they have free fairground rides for the children and fireworks. Well done Bury St Edmunds!
