An indoor market of 70 stalls is set to bring festive cheer to South Cambridgeshire, offering visitors the chance to snap up gifts and get into the Christmas spirit.  

South Cambridgeshire District Council will be hosting a Christmas Market on Sunday 10 December which will be held across Cambourne Village College Performance Hall and the neighbouring gymnasium. Visitor entry to the market is free. 

Between 11am and 3pm, a variety of stalls will be offering locally crafted gifts, delicious holiday treats, and festive decor. There will also be a selection of mobile caterers found just outside of the venue who will be serving up street food as well as 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 for free at another one of our Christmas markets. We are dedicated to helping the growth of our local businesses and economies, understanding the crucial role they play in our high streets and communities.

“This market is not just an event; it's an opportunity for our community to come together, share yuletide cheer, and support local artisans and businesses. From handcrafted ornaments to delectable treats, there will be something for everyone. Make sure to mark your calendars with the perfect way to kick off the holiday season.”

This follows on from the successful indoor Christmas market held last year, which saw around 1700 visitors.

To prevent and avoid congestion on the day of the event, parking is prohibited along Sheepfold Lane or on the approach to Cambourne Village College. Visitors are being encouraged to walk or cycle, however, if visitors must drive, parking is available at Cambourne Village College or at designated overflow parking at Cambourne Business Park, next to South Cambridgeshire Hall.
