Traditional Christmas Market

We are excited to host our annual Traditional Christmas Market in the picturesque grounds of Middleton Hall & Gardens on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th November. From seasonal decorations to vintage craft, tasty delights to flavourful, locally-sourced drinks, we have something for all to enjoy and get everyone in the festive spirit. 

Our Christmas Market will be different to previous years as we will be putting extra measures in place to keep our visitor, volunteers, staff and traders safe. However, this does not mean that we will be lacking in Christmas spirit! Visitors are invited to share in the festivities with us, whilst working together to keep ourselves and others safe. Our safety measures will include:

  • Pre-booked online ticket system to facilitate track and track. All tickets must be pre-booked online. Visitor number will be capped and varied arrival slots will be used to stagger visitor numbers.
  • All stalls outside in the Glade & Orchard. The Hall will not be open with the exception of the toilets.
  • One-way system around the market with ample signage instructing social distancing and encouraging the wearing of face coverings.


How do I book tickets?

Tickets for this event must be pre-booked online, even if you are eligible for free entry i.e. MH&G Season Pass Holder. There will be no tickets available on the door so if you turn up on the day without a ticket, you will be sadly turned away.

Tickets will go on sale on Thursday 12th November.

All tickets are sold through our website: Do not buy from any other ticket seller and please alert us if you see tickets for this event being sold elsewhere. Visitors are not permitted to buy tickets from each other as this undermines the track and trace system we have in place for your safety.

Prices: £3 Adult Admission, free for U16s, MH&G Season Pass Holders & Historic House members.

The following passes and discounts may not be used for Christmas Market tickets: RHS, Gardeners’ World 2for1, RSPB 2for1, Caravan & Motorhome Club 2for1, CPRE 2for1.
