Bath Christmas Markets return

It’s very nearly time for the 2022 Bath Christmas Market to open for the first time on a large scale in two years, and the city will once again be filled with the sights, smells and sounds of all things festive. This year promises to be extra special as it marks the 20th anniversary of the event.

Meander through the streets of Bath adorned with over 150 twinkling chalets and discover some of the best crafters that the South West and beyond has to offer.

Festive Food

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a festive treat. At Bath Christmas Market, pick up your favourite winter warmers to enjoy as you explore everything the market has to offer.

Charitable Spirit

Like Radio Bath, Bath Christmas Market is proud to support local charities, and in 2019, they raised over £26,000 through the market’s free charity chalet rentals. Make sure you pay a visit to their stalls and do what you can to show your support. Funds raised are distributed to as many groups as possible, from schools and colleges to choirs and dance troupes.

A Sustainable Market

Sustainability is at the heart of Bath Christmas Market. Each year we strive to be more environmentally responsible and make a positive impact on the city. This ensures that the event is a leader in Event Sustainability for the Bath and North East Somerset region.

Every year, the team are taking steps to reduce the amount of single-use plastic at the Market, working with contractors, stallholders and caterers to eliminate unnecessary plastic waste that has detrimental effects on our planet’s ecosystems. In 2019, by adopting a single-use plastic-free policy, they were able to measure and audit the use of single-use plastics, set targets for reduction, and phase them out by finding alternatives.

Opening Hours: 

Monday to Wednesday: 10am to 7pm 

Thursday to Saturday: 10am to 8pm 

Sundays: 10am to 6pm
