Skipton's Yuletide Festival & Christmas Market 2014



The 'Gateway to the Dales' brings you Skipton's famous Yuletide Festival and market, which is now in its 20th year. This hugely successful event, brought to you by Skipton Town Council and the Skipton Business Improvement District attracts tens of thousands of people from across the country.

This year, the event takes place on Sunday 7th and Sunday 14th of December.

Skipton's famous Market will be in full festive flow on both days running the full length of the High Street from 10am - 4.30pm.

Together with the market and great food stalls, there will be a full range of entertainment in the Town Centre throughout the day, both in the main High Street Arena and at locations across the Town. The whole of Skipton truly has a real Christmassy feel...

The Yuletide Festival is an ideal opportunity to sample a great atmosphere and to bag yourself a pre-Christmas bargain at the same time. In fact, you could do ALL your Christmas shopping in one go at the fabulous range of independent shops, market stalls and famous high street brands. Skipton also has two department stores and a fabulous range of places to eat and drink.

Confirmed entertainment include Musical Ruth and her piano as well as the hilarious Granny Turismo's along with these great acts we have our regulars - Skipton Brass Band, Barnoldswick Brass Band, Nelson Brass Band and Accrington Pipe Band adding to the festive occasion...

NEW entertainment for 2013 included the RED HOT SANTAS (Band) and the amazing BJORN THE POLAR BEAR returns, back by popular demand.

We also have two of Santa's REAL REINDEER in attendance on both Sundays of the Christmas Festival.

Each day of the Festival rounds off with a torchlight procession up the High Street to Holy Trinity Church (starting at 4pm) where a traditional Christmas carol service takes place in the grounds!
