Christmas in Cirencester 2011
The ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’ has been famous for its markets since Roman times: it hosts the famous twice weekly Charter Market, a Farmers’ Market every second Saturday and regular indoor antique and crafts markets in the Corn Hall. The town itself has a wonderfully diverse mix of shops, combining quality independent retailers with some of the best high street names, with something for all tastes and budgets.

From 25th November to 11th December, the heart of Cirencester will be transformed by our Christmas Market; beautifully adorned wooden chalets, each decorated with festive swags and white pea lights, between them selling a wide range of clothes, gifts and toys, together with festive food and drink.
A programme of activities is planned, centred on the Christmas market, but spilling out across the town. This will include the switching on of the lights, the return of the popular and hugely well supported lantern procession, as well as live music and street performances.
