This year’s Christmas market on Cathedral Green will, for the first time, be operated by Exeter Cathedral
The Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market, which has been re-orientated to focus on the West Front of the Cathedral, will still have a ‘Continental’ feel but will also boast more opportunities to support local businesses and performers.
The Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market will open on Thursday 16th November 2017 at 15.00, followed by an official launch later that evening.
Following the opening night, the market will open until Sunday 17th December, trading between the following times:
Monday to Wednesday: 10.00-19.00
Thursday to Saturday: 10.00-21.00
Stalls and entertainment
We’re looking forward to an exciting mix of local and continental traders, showcasing the best of festive food, crafts and gifts. All traders (with the exception of those in the Exeter BID Village) will be open for the duration of the market.
