Canterbury Christmas Market 2021

6th September, 2021

We’re striving to make this Christmas in Canterbury as enjoyable and as festive as possible for our visitors but we would like to reassure everyone that we are mindful that the Covid-19 pandemic is not yet over. We continue to work to high standards and the following will be in place when you visit the Christmas Market

  1. Cleaning and general cleanliness is managed throughout and enhanced in areas where there has been deemed a greater risk
  1. Additional signage has been installed as a reminder to visitors 
  2. Social distancing, although no longer mandatory, is recommended when queueing and moving around the Christmas market
  3. Face coverings, although not mandatory, are welcomed when approaching stalls
  4. Stall spacing and distancing has been considered and additional space and placement of stalls has been adopted
  5. Electronic payment systems are in place and used where possible
  6. Additional employee training and awareness systems are in place to assist with safe operation

Things can change

This is an ever-changing situation so please watch this website and social media for the latest updates.  While we will endeavour to meet our commitments to bookings, dates etc. new guidelines may mean some cancellations or changes to the advertised itinerary.
