Sherborne Festive Shopping Day

Posted by
Sherborne Chamber of Trade & Commerce

Sherborne will once again light up for Christmas with a free-entry Festive Shopping Day on Sunday 3rd December 2023 from 10am until 4pm.

The day will include:

  • Church services in The Abbey
  • Festive shops and stalls
  • Street entertainers
  • Sherborne Town Band
  • Other music and choirs.
  • Santa’s Grotto
  • Children’s competition
  • Dorset’s Farmers Market
  • Christmas tree festival
  • Parade and lighting of the tree at 4pm

Sherborne’s Festive Shopping Day is always well supported with the main shopping area of Cheap Street closed to traffic. Visitors have the opportunity to browse more than 80 street market stalls of local makers, producers and traders, as well as the range of independent shop, for which Sherborne is known. All of them will of course be offering some great ideas for Christmas gifts, treats and pampering as well as countless places to enjoy something to eat or drink in the coffee shops, restaurants and pubs the town has to offer.

And while in the town, don’t forget to make the annual trip to see the award-winning Christmas display at Castle Gardens too – just five minutes drive from the town centre.

Free parking will be available in Dorset Council car parks: Acreman Street, Coldharbour, Culverhayes (short stay and long stay), Culverhayes (commercial), Newland North, Old Market Yard and The Digby Hall.

Organised by volunteers from Sherborne’s Chamber of Trade and Commerce and is a great family day out.
