The 2023 Bedale Christmas Street Market will take place on SUNDAY 3rd December in the Market Place, from 9am onwards. The road will be closed to traffic between Bridge Street and the Market Cross to allow free and safe access to our many stalls, including food and drink, crafts, and traditional market stalls - as well as our Market Place shops selling Christmas goodies.
PLEASE NOTE the change of day to Sunday this year; this is after Town Council consultation with the permanent Market Place businesses to minimise disruption to their festive trade.
There will be entertainment during the day including children's fairground rides and a range of music - from rockers to handbell ringers - on a stage by the Market Cross, then Bedale Brass play carols at 3.30pm, followed by the arrival of Santa and the Christmas lights switch-on at 4.30pm. We will also be joined by hundreds of Santas on motorbikes on the Squires Cafe Xmas Toy Run.
If you are interested in taking a stall at the Christmas Market, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or simply fill in and return the application form. (Microsoft Word version available from email@example.com.)
N.B. The Bedale Christmas Festival at Bedale Hall and North End takes place the previous week on Saturday 25th November
