Blenheim Palace Christmas Market

Working in partnership with Blenheim Palace and Raymond Gubbay, Living Crafts Events is thrilled to bring the third Christmas Market to the Palace this year. This chalet based event will run for just over four weeks and will be held in the Great Court, a stunning setting at the heart of the Palace.

Over seventy chalets filled the Great Court in 2019 with visitors enjoying the festive atmosphere and buying hand-picked, irresistible gifts and unique products, as well as tempting treats for foodies. Based on 2019 figures and in conjunction with the Light Trail and themed Palace, over 185,000 people will come through the Market with numbers peaking at around 10,000 a day at weekends.

Blenheim will be working hard to minimise the impact of Covid 19 and ensure the success of the Christmas Experience within the Market, along the Light Trail and around the Palace. There is plenty of room in the dramatic Great Court of Blenheim Palace for social distancing and the chalet positions and visitor routes are being carefully planned to make the Market experience as safe as possible for both you as traders and for our visitors.

Blenheim Palace will be transformed into a magical fairy tale fantasy world; the State Rooms of Britain’s Greatest Palace will be aglow with seasonal decorations. Visitors can wander beneath garlands into rooms filled with glistening ornaments, ribbons, baubles, holly and mistletoe. The themed Palace adventure begins in the Great Hall with each room decorated to reflect a different chapter from a Christmas story and filled with the sights and sounds conjured up by a much loved fairy tale.

As the sun sets and the late afternoon lights come on, the second wave of visitors will descend on the Palace. The Light Trail will be bigger and brighter than ever and the Market will be promoted to these customers as an integral part of the Blenheim at Christmas Experience.
