Between 11am and 3pm, 70 local independent business stalls will offer an array of products such as artisan crafts, edible gifts, artwork, handmade items and floristry. A selection of mobile caterers can also be found just outside of the venue, providing both hot and cold festive refreshments.
Cllr Peter McDonald, Lead Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: “We are thrilled to be able to give local traders a chance to showcase their businesses to the public through our upcoming Christmas Market. We are committed to helping our local businesses and economies to grow as we recognise how important local businesses are to our high streets and communities. We hope our market will be a fun and festive day out, enjoyed by all on the countdown to Christmas.”

Visitors are being encouraged to walk or cycle, however, if visitors do need to drive, parking is available at Cambourne Village College or at designated overflow parking at Cambourne Business Park.
