Christmas at Plymouth Market

Christmas at Plymouth Market

We have all the ingredients you need for a fabulous Christmas from food for all the family to the perfect presents for everyone, all under one roof.  When you feel 'shopped out', why not sit down for coffee and cake or even do lunch at one of the many eateries.

Plymouth Market is the home of the Nutcracker Trail in 2017.  You can see the gigantic throne and books and our theme is seasonal storytelling for all ages!  Join us for story fun every Saturday through December.  We will also have free face painting by Karen Mills, kids entertainment with Emaz-Dad, and an Ocean City Sound concert each week. Times as follows:

Emaz-Dad - 10am - 1pm (9th and 16th December); 11am - 4pm (23rd December)

Karen Mills - 10am - 4pm (9th, 16th and 23rd December)

Ocean City Sound - 11am - 1pm (9th, 16th and 23rd December)

The Christmas charity for 2017 is Derriford Hospital's NICU, a very worthy cause for which all donations are gratefully accepted.

Storytelling dates for your diary (10am to 4pm):

9th December - meet favourite characters from Star Wars during the day.  Author and Star Wars actor John Chapman will be reading and selling signed copies of his 'Jonnie Rocket' children's books and holding story workshops.  There will also be a competition to win tickets to the new Star Wars film 'The Last Jedi'.

16th December - a fabulous grumpy Grinch character will join us to read stories and Radio Plymouth will be helping us with our 'Money Grabber' competition, a chance to win one of two 'Christmas Story Stockings' (one for adults, one for children) worth over £200, containing an Amazon Kindle and much much more...

23rd December - Father Christmas will be dropping in for storytelling and we will be repeating our fabulous 'Santa's Sack' competition with the chance to win an iPad mini.  All you need to do to enter is to visit the market, complete an entry form and put it into his sack!

We look forward to seeing you there!
