Artisan Christmas Market Returns to Blenheim Palace


Blenheim Palace’s Great Court will be transformed into a spectacular Christmas Market next month, with a sumptuous array of produce and crafts on offer.

Taking place against the beautiful backdrop of the baroque Oxfordshire Palace from Friday, November 17, the seasonal market is the perfect opportunity to meet the makers, soak up the yuletide atmosphere and pick out some beautiful Christmas gifts.

The Palace will host traditional wooden chalets showcasing unique works by a range of designers and tempting treats to taste and take home.

Get in the festive spirit and try winter warming tipples – from Canyero Salted Caramel Rum to sustainable vodka and gin from Sapling Spirits, who plant a tree for every bottle they make – all adding to the feel-good factor as you buy.

Sample some Indonesian jewellery courtesy of Love Anchor Bali, marvel at the handmade wooden toys from Timber Tots and try some cheese from family-run business The Marlow Cheese Company.

The diversity and authenticity doesn’t stop there, with everything from olives, fused glass, soft drinks, cookies, ceramic garlic graters, condiments, knitwear and much, much more.

The Christmas Market runs for a month until Sunday, December 17 and is part of a whole host of festive entertainment on offer at Britain’s greatest palace.

Entry to the market is free and access is also included with tickets to the indoor and outdoor trails. A combined ticket is available so visitors can enjoy the whole festive experience at a reduced rate.

The Christmas Market is brought to you by leading events promoter Raymond Gubbay Ltd (a division of Sony Music), in partnership with Blenheim Palace and Living Crafts Events.
