Stratford-upon-Avon Unveils New Look Christmas Markets for 2024

LSD Promotions in collaboration with Stratford-on-Avon District Council, and Stratford-upon-Avon Town Council, is thrilled to announce a fresh look for its renowned Christmas Market in 2024. Responding to feedback from local residents and businesses, the markets will feature an all-new layout designed to enhance visitor experience while helping to minimise disruption to the town.

The revamped, smaller markets footprint will allow for Wood Street, Union Street, High Street, and the Bridge Street roundabout to remain open, aiming to maintain a better flow of traffic and reduce congestion compared to previous years, allowing both residents and businesses to navigate the town. Boasting 200 high-quality stalls, the markets remain some of the largest in the West Midlands, promising a truly special shopping experience.

Taking place over two consecutive weekends, on 7th & 8th and 14th & 15th December, the extended duration allows visitors to experience the markets on what are traditionally the most popular days, and the midweek traffic congestion in the town will be significantly reduced.

Entertainment will be integrated throughout the markets footprint, offering visitors the chance to experience a variety of performers as they explore. Unlike previous years, the markets will forego a centralised Main Stage and Funfair, allowing entertainment to roam freely and create an immersive experience for all visitors.

Stratford-upon-Avon's Christmas Markets have evolved to meet the changing needs of the local community and visitors, promising to be the highlight of the Christmas season. Against the backdrop of the town's historic streets adorned with twinkling Christmas lights, the markets invite all to experience the magic and joy of the festive season.
