Whether it's a visit to see our beautiful trees or an evening ringing in a vintage-style New Year, our annual Wintertime festival features a huge variety of events.

From sacred music to pop-up performances and a twinkling market along the riverfront, you can find something to delight at every turn.


This year's Winter Market will take place between Friday 9 November and Thursday 27 December 2018.
