Christmas events in the Lake District 2016

Christmas events in the Lake District 2016


On the 3rd Friday of the month Cartmel hosts a regular food market. This little medieval village in the south of the Lake District is perhaps best known for producing the famous Cartmel puddings. On Friday 16th December 2016 the local produce market will take on a bit of a festive twist in the run up to Christmas. There are different stalls and vendors each month but a few of the favourites are: Cartmel Village Shop, Mrs Kirkham's Lancashire Cheese and Kitridding Farm Shop. The market will be running from 10.00am to 4.00pm and is located adjacent to the Priory in Cartmel village.


If you head over to Kendal on the 17th December you will find the Christmas craft fair in the town hall. There are 15 stalls making an appearance selling local goods and handmade gifts.

Kendal's usual Farmer's Market returns on Friday 23rd and will be held in the market place in Kendal town centre. Things kick off at 9.30am and draw to a close around 3.30pm. You'll be able to stock up on some last minute fresh and local produce just in time for the family to descend on you for Christmas dinner! This market is actually the oldest farmer's market in Cumbria and is said to date back to the 12th century!


In Keswick this year there is a novel live advent taking place every day throughout December. To count the days down to Christmas an event will be taking place every day up until the 24th. At 4.00pm each day the pop-up festive event will mark one less day till Christmas! Events range from children's stories and carol singing to yummy vegan treats and a Santa's Grotto.
