Gather under the gaslamps and celebrate the start of the festive season as the much-loved Victorian Christmas Market returns!


Unique gifts & local makers

With over 80 market stalls selling an array of Sheffield made wares, quality gifts and seasonal goods, you'll find the perfect presents and stocking fillers for your loved ones.

Eat, drink & be merry

Enjoy food and drink, from traditional hog roast to wood fired pizza. Relax in the Millowners Arms or warm up with a mulled wine.

Family fun and fairground favourites

Fun times for families with children's fairground rides and games and miniature engine rides on our very own Kelham Flyer.

Join in the festive cheer, singing loud for all to hear

Magical music and merriment from local brass bands, musicians, choirs and carollers on our Music Hall Stage. Don't miss our wonderful walkabout characters, traditional dancers and the amazing Snow Queen on stilts.

Help the busy elves in Santa's Workshop, strike a pose on the Selfie Sleigh, plus meet the main man himself in Santa's Grotto - don't forget to bring your wish list!

Marvel at the museum
