The Lincoln Christmas Market is one of the UK’s largest Christmas Markets and one of most popular in Europe, famous for its stalls and historic location.

In 2017, the Market is setting up some amazing festivities once again, and will feature lots of fantastic entertainment, including singers, buskers and street artists!

There’s always a great festive atmosphere. There’s more than 280 stalls spread across the cultural quarter of the City (and parts of the Cathedral quarter) of the city and the famous Bailgate area; spanning around our beautiful Cathedral, running through Lincoln Castle and along the quaint cobbled streets.

You will certainly find that there is something for everyone, from handcrafted unusual gifts brought in from our European neighbours through to food and drink from all corners of the globe. Not to mention a variety of entertainment suitable for the whole family.

Come and enjoy what the Lincoln Christmas Market has to offer. It’s a great way to kick off your Christmas celebrations and get into the festive spirit with loved ones, family and friends. We hope you enjoy.
