Why not come and visit the local Christmas Markets 

Christmas Market 17 November 2018, this annual event in Ambleside combines a traditional shopping experience with a Christmas light switch on, cruises on the lake, a lantern parade, and a visit from the guest of honour – Santa Claus himself – complete with his sleigh. The day ends in spectacular style with a large fireworks display. There are family-friendly activities throughout the day, as well as live music and other street performances, whilst the market sells a range of culinary delights and other gifts. www.amblesidechristmaslights.co.uk/docs/programme-map2018.pdf

The small village of Hawkshead brims with festival cheer each year, usually during the first weekend of December when a Christmas Fair takes over the ancient streets. You will find both indoor and outdoor markets with over 50 stalls selling food, crafts, and other gifts. There is also a lantern parade, live music, and street performance from circus acts and other artists. Children can meet Santa in his grotto, whilst grown-ups can indulge in the mini beer festival that takes place in village’s pubs. (Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd December)

Run entirely by a group of dedicated volunteers, the Windermere Christmas Market first took place in 2016, and work has since taken place following the success of this first market to ensure the growth and development of future events. Along with around 50 stalls selling a range of goods produced both locally and from Europe, you will find live music and other street performers. There is a shuttle bus in operation from car parks in the larger Bowness-On-Windermere, and plenty of stands selling hot food. (Sat 8th & Sun 9th December 2018).
