This post lists over 10 of the best Christmas markets in the East Midlands. However, in 2020 I’m afraid many of those Christmas events have been cancelled. As this is a popular post on my website I will keep the post live as hopefully 2021 will mean the return of much loved Christmas markets. Find a festive Christmas market near you across Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. These are all great places to find the perfect Christmas gift and enjoy some festive treats.
Please ring each event you are considering attending to double-check that they are still going ahead.
