About the Festival

The Beverley Festival of Christmas is one of the largest Christmas Festival events in the UK. Our one day event (always the 2nd Sunday in December) brings four fantastic Victorian Christmas Market locations and a whole range of festive entertainment to Beverley Town Centre.

We have over 120 stalls attending, all selling a wide variety of handcrafted products, from Jewellery to Gin - the majority of which is made within the East Riding of Yorkshire. Last year we had over 55,000 visitors and 63 coaches attending from as far as Edinburgh! A hugely popular event on the calendar at Christmas time.

The streets of Beverley will be glittering with music, dancers, a display by Bernese Mountain Dogs, Victorian Fariground rides, Birds of Prey, marching and military bands, Victorian street entertainers and last but by no means least, Santa on his sleigh, drawn by live reindeer through the town.

The Beverley Festival of Christmas is the perfect way to build-up to Christmas, a fantastic day out for all the family and a great way to get those stockings filled!
