See Santa and his reindeer arrive in Beverley at 10am tomorrow

Beverley Festival of Christmas 2018

Beverley will be in fine festive spirits this year as once again it hosts one of the UK’s biggest one-day Christmas festivals on Sunday, 9th December.

Traditional Victorian markets will take place at Saturday Market, Wednesday Market and North Bar Within, along with a whole ho-ho-host of seasonal cheer at Flemingate Centre – including the very popular Nordic Tipi Bar with its welcoming roaring fire.

Reindeer will guide Santa and his sleigh at 10am from Wednesday Market to Saturday Market.

Visitors can even meet Santa and get a picture before Rudolph and the rest of the reindeer return to Lapland to prepare for the big day in December.

With over 120 Victorian market stalls offering a huge choice of food and drink – and, of course, stocking fillers – families can also look forward to face painting, traditional Victorian fairground rides, live music, dance, birds of prey and a snow globe at Flemingate Centre.

And if that weren’t enough, panto stars from Bridlington Spa’s fabulous Jack and the Beanstalk – including Star Trek actor Marina Sirtis – will add further festival fun.
