Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market
Thursday 16th November until Sunday 17th December 2017
It was announced on Thursday 5th April 2017 that the Cathedral is to take over running the Christmas market on the Cathedral Green this year. The market, which will be re-orientated to focus on the West Front of the Cathedral, will still have a ‘Continental’ feel but will also boast more opportunities to support local businesses and performers.
The Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market will open on Thursday 16th November 2017 at 15.00, followed by an official launch later that evening.
Following the opening night, the market will open until Sunday 17th December, trading between the following times:
Monday to Wednesday: 10.00-19.00
Thursday to Saturday: 10.00-21.00
Stalls and entertainment
We’re looking forward to an exciting mix of local and continental traders, showcasing the best of festive food, crafts and gifts. New for 2017 will be the west front bandstand.
A list of traders, a map of the market and information about the Cathedral’s Christmas programme of services and events will be available soon.

Totnes and District Show 2018
Sunday 29th July 2018
Inaugurated by the local farming and town communities 100 years ago, the show has certainly moved with the times, but one of its aims still is to represent life in the wonderful South Hams. Every year we attract thousands of visitors, young and old and there is something for all of them.
We have exciting demonstrations, displays and parades in the Main Ring, our Music Stage speaks for itself and there’s even a sheep shearing competition.
Sheep, cattle and horses compete for showing honours and show jumping is as popular as ever. Amongst a whole host of other things, there’s a Home, Handicraft and Horticulture marquee, Craft Tent, Food Hall and a large trade stands section, offering a wide choice of goods and services.
So come and join us for a great day out on Sunday 29th July 2018 for our Centenary celebration show.
