A Magical Christmas

Kirkby Lonsdale is pulling out all the stops for a magical Christmas Market and Fair on December 2-4.

Our hotel, The Royal is really excited to be one of the main sponsors and we are looking forward to offering festive cheer at what promises to be a special weekend in the South Lakes market town. Among the attractions is the Santa parade on Saturday December 3rd, which includes the big man himself in his sleigh, being drawn along the roads by real reindeers! How festive! As he waves his wand and, like magic the Christmas trees above the shops light up. 

Last year, the Christmas market was badly affected by Storm Desmond, but this year, the event promises to be bigger and better than ever before. Hundreds of all people of all ages, are expected to turn out to watch the Santa parade and enjoy the festivities. 

The market square, overlooked by our hotel, will become a charming shopping village with 20 chalets offering a wide array of gifts plus a Santa's grotto, crafters, artists, musicians, and entertainers. Events will also take place in the Lunesdale and the churches. We will be dishing up our own recipe mulled wine and mince pies, plus we will be offering visitors the chance to come in from the cold and enjoy a special Christmas menu. 

Even Damian the GM of The Royal, commented on the buzz building around the event: "We are delighted to be one of the Christmas Market and Fair's main sponsors. We are looking forward to giving our legendary Royal welcome to everyone over this great weekend in Kirkby Lonsdale. We will be open throughout with our roaring fires and festive cheer. Kirkby Lonsdale at Christmas is especially magical and this year Santa and his real reindeer will really make it one to remember."

The fair is open from 4pm-8pm on Friday December 2nd, 10am-6pm on Saturday December 3 and 10am-4pm on Sunday December 4. Further details are available on the Kirkby Lonsdale website, go give it a visit! We can take you straight there - all you have to do is click HERE.
