Bury St Edmunds 9th Annual Christmas Fayre

Warning: This feature is now out of date

Between Friday 23 November and Sunday 25 November, the historic centre of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk will be transformed into a traditional Christmas market with colourful stalls selling local produce and crafts as well as over 300 traders from around the UK and mainland Europe, traditional fairground rides and on-stage entertainment.

The Angel Hill and Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds with its recently crowned 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 plus cafés and restaurants galore. Visitors will also be able to sample the delights of Bury St Edmunds’ provisions market, which coincides with the Cathedral’s Christmas Fair and the Medieval Fayre in Moyse’s Hall Museum. There will be street entertainment and more stalls in the new public building – apex.

New for 2012, Bury St Edmunds extends their weekly street market to include Friday 23 November and hosts a Farmers Market on Sunday 25 November. All producers will be from the Suffolk area, and there will be a selection of food, drink and crafts – ideal for the Christmas period.

Bury St Edmunds has good value parking close to the town centre, and a park and ride will operate on all three days.

So, Bury St Edmunds’ award-winning Christmas Fayre just keeps getting bigger and better. Why not come along and see for yourself?
