Flyer image for the Hotwalls Christmas Market featuring three local artworks


Join the Hotwalls Studios for a weekend of festive fun. The resident artists will open their studios and the Parade Ground will be transformed into a market square with local traders selling prints, ceramics, homeware, sculpture, jewellery and much more. Further market stalls will be found inside the Round Tower as The Trader Keep artisan market returns too. All of this will be complemented by live music, mulled wine and, of course, food and drink at The Canteen!

The market is free to attend and is within easy walking distance of other attractions in the city. The event is wheelchair and mobility scooter accessible.

Embrace the chance to watch artists and makers at work, purchase unique Christmas gifts and even commission professional pieces.
