Gather your Christmas crew and get ready to embrace the festive season, because Bournemouth Christmas Market is back to spread Festive cheer in Bournemouth Town Centre for Christmas in Bournemouth 2023!
We're absolutely thrilled to take center stage in Bournemouth's yuletide festivities, lighting up the South Coast from Friday, November 17th, all the way to Monday, January 1st, with our doors open every day (apart from Christmas Day!) from 11 am until 11:00 pm. We're here to sprinkle a hefty dose of festive magic, and you're all invited!
Visitors will be able to enjoy a whole host of fantastic local offerings with over 40 Chalet Huts offering everything from luxury hot chocolates, from local Christchurch legends Norris & Binglewort, through to handmade Christmas favourites from Bournemouth's South Coast Makers Market, and many more!
But that's not all – join us in our cosy two-story Alpine Lodge, where we keep the holiday spirits high with indoor, outdoor, and balcony seating that offers spectacular views of the Christmas Market and the enchanting Christmas Tree Wonderland and SKATE Ice Rink!
Our weekly lineup is the stuff of legends: Monday Quiz Nights to get your brain gears turning, Wednesday Christmas Karaoke evenings to unleash your inner diva, and our famous live music Sunday Sessions to keep your toes tapping.

We've cranked up the family fun meter with weekly (free of charge!) face painting, cookie decorating classes, and even our very own 'Letters to Santa’ postbox area – because those wish lists are super important! Plus we have a Children’s trail, with booklets given out to showcase a trail all around the Bournemouth Christmas offering, which once completed enters you in to weekly prize giveaways and a grand prize being drawn on Christmas Day!
Can you hear it? That's the sweet sound of Christmas carols filling the air! Sing along with us as we welcome some of Bournemouth's favourite choirs and carol singers to the square for weekly performances. Our schedule is constantly evolving, so keep up to date right here πŸ‘‰
