Guildhall Christmas Market

Get into the festive spirit with the sights and sounds of the Guildhall Christmas Market this November.

  • Explore the indoor food market – dubbed Foodiefest – and enjoy food tastings, book signings and workshops, with guest appearances from Loyd Grossman and Cyrus Todiwala.
  • Head outside into the Guildhall Yard for the traditional Weihnachtsmarkt (German Christmas market) and enjoy a glühwein.
  • Enjoy a spot of lunch or Champagne cream tea down in the largest medieval crypt in London.
  • Find the perfect Christmas gift while shopping at over 100 stalls and the designer pop-up boutique where Amanda Wakeley samples and designer vintage pieces will be up for grabs.

There will also be an art fair with artist Jeremy Houghton, the team from your favourite antiques television programme where you can get heirlooms valued, a relaxation station, a traditional Weihnachtsmarkt food market open 12pm – 8pm on both the 27th & 28th November and a silent auction.

The market is open for one day only on Tuesday 28 November. However, there are also limited tickets available for a preview event the night before, and a special Syrian supper with Loyd Grossman and the Aleppo Supper club (more info below).

All proceeds will go towards the lifesaving work of the British Red Cross both in the UK and overseas.
