The Hepworth Wakefield Christmas Fair

23 - 25 Nov + 30 Nov - 2 Dec 2018, 10am – 5pm

‘One of Britain’s best Christmas markets’ The Guardian

The Hepworth Wakefield’s Christmas Fair has quickly established itself as one of Yorkshire’s top Christmas shopping destinations and this year takes place over two weekends.

Treat yourself and your loved ones from over 80 stalls selling textiles, ceramics, jewellery, prints, handmade cosmetics, candles, stationery and homeware from some of the UK’s most talented artists and designers. There will also be a food and drink tent selling artisan produce made in Yorkshire and an outdoor area with a range of delicious street food.

Our Christmas Fair is bigger and better this year, offering a fun and festive day out for the whole family featuring a programme of festive performances and free family activities.
