This event offers families a different experience in Christmas shopping with something for everyone.

There will be a children’s fairground on-site and Santa will be in his grotto with a live nativity to ensure youngsters get their Christmas wish lists to him on time.

Visitors can also look forward to family entertainment, carol singing, mulled wine, hot chestnuts, mince pies and of course plenty of wonderful food, drink, gifts and crafts.  We’ll take over a large indoor area which will be approached by wonderful small festive outdoor village.

Many traders you will recognise if you’ve ever been to Team Valley Christmas Market and Gateshead Christmas Village in years past, but there will be some new companies on board too.

Entry charges are £2 per adult, £1.50 for concessions and children up to 16 free.

In keeping with previous years North East Markets will be donating profits from Santa’s Grotto to a local children’s charities nominated and voted on by their social media followers.
