It's the 10th anniversary of Padstow Christmas Festival!
It's fabulously festive, foody, full-on and still manages to be super friendly. Every year it just gets better.
Starting Thursday 7th at noon, the Christmas Market is packed full with diverse, top quality food, drink and gift producers The main marquee opens for its five days of festive trading, along with chef demonstations ( there are over 40 star chefs showing over the five days ) in Sharp's Chef's Theatre and foodie demos in the Festival Kitchen ( yes, not just one but two large foodie demo spots ). In amongst all of this there are the artisan and local food pop-up stalls all around the festival, the live music and carolling adding an extra touch of magic to proceedings. More highlights over the four days include fireworks on the harbour on the Friday to celebrate the Christmas Lights Switch On, Santa Fun Run ( this being Padstow, not just one or two Santas but a whole belly of Santas and of course the running and cycling reindeer ) on the Saturday.
