Horncastle Christmas Market 2018

This annual market will be taking place on Sunday 9th December from 11 am to 4 pm. The High Street will be closed and lined with Christmas themed craft stalls, artisan manufacturers, and delicious food suppliers.

Musicians will perform for your entertainment and Father Christmas will be in his grotto, and the organisers are busy arranging amazing street entertainment.
