Bishop's Palace Christmas Artisan Market

About

The Christmas Artisan Market returns to The Bishop's Palace for its sixth year on 6-7th November 10am-4pm.

There will be a plethora of unique, unusual and inspirational artisans in attendance, curated from throughout the heart of the West Country to get everyone in the mood for a spot of seasonal retail therapy.

The medieval rooms of the Palace, upstairs and downstairs, will be filled with a variety of enticing stalls, offering hand-made and unique gifts that are the perfect inspiration for those difficult to buy for friends and family, whilst also supporting local small businesses from the South West of England.

This year, the team has sourced a number of new artisan stalls, alongside a few regular favourites and offerings will include handcrafted goods such as: Stained Glass by Debra, Echo Candles and Jewellery by Small Print. There will be plenty of gift inspiration, decorations, cards and much more!

If all the shopping means you're in need of refreshment, then head over to the café for seasonal drinks or enjoy some of our live musical performances.
