Online Bath Christmas Market goes live

By Ben Carey on 12 October, 2020

The online Bath Christmas Market has launched, showcasing a range of producers, artists and makers.

Running until 1st January 2021, bathchristmasmarket.co.uk will direct you straight to stallholders’ websites, allowing visitors to shop from home and support many of the city’s creative and unique businesses.

Charitable donations are also being encouraged, with around 27 local charities featuring on the site with a link through to their websites and social channels.

Bath Christmas Market lovers will find lots of their favourite produce, including beautifully crafted homewares, Christmas decorations, personalised gifts, handcrafted jewellery, delicious seasonal food and much more. Look out for the exclusive festive deals and discounts many will be offering.

Mick Heath, Head of Events at Visit Bath, said, “Cancelling Bath Christmas Market this year was hugely disappointing for our stallholders, many of whom rely on the market for a large proportion of their annual turnover. It was therefore extremely important to us to find a way to support them.

“We are delighted that we can direct shoppers, from all over the UK and potentially beyond, online to shop from the market’s producers, as well as continue to support a range of local charities; last year £26K was raised, so it’s an element of Bath Christmas Market we are very proud of.”
