Welcome to

CHRISTMAS MARKET - SUNDAY 12th December 2021 

We are pleased to announce that the outdoor section of the Ingatestone Christmas Market, organised by the Rotary Club of Ingatestone, is planned to be held again this year on Sunday 12th December 2021 - 12 noon to 6pm.

Ingatestone & Fryerning Community Association, who organise the indoor 'Christmas Fayre', are keeping this under review and a decision will be made later as to whether this event will take place on Sunday 12th December 2021.

As we did in 2019, the site will be extended  and include ready assembled stalls as well as pitches so there is room for more stallholders. Overall there will be over 70 stalls at the event - outside and inside the hall.

We have been in touch with last year's stall holders to give them first option to reserve their pitch or stall which the majority have but there are some stalls and pitches still available which are open to all. If you wish to apply to reserve one of these, please contact us at
contact-our-office@ingatestonechristmasmarket.com  and we will send you an application form. Alternatively, go to the 'Get Involved' page, from where you can download a form.

This year we are not seeking payment immediately in order to secure a booking but will do so later in the year when the position on Covid is clearer and better known. Successful applicants will have pitches or stalls reserved for them and this will become a confirmed booking later in the year once payment is received.

Nearer the time, a decison will be made taking into account all the unknown factors, the then current Government guidelines for Covid-19 and the risks to both the public in attending, the stallholders and all the volunteers, not to mention the potential financial loss, as to whether the event will take place. We are optimistic it will.

What Stallholders thought about 2019 Ingatestone Christmas Market

I just wanted to say what a lovely Christmas market you and your colleagues put on.
There were lots of people and the atmosphere was very festive with a variety of stalls to purchase from.
Although the wind was a little testing it subsided and a good day was had by all. 
I have to say personally I had a successful day in sales. 
Well done for the organisation and precision of arranging such an event. 
 I hope to see you next year. 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Kind regards, Julia Jones -  El-Belle   Tue 10/12/2019
Thank you for having us. It was, I would say, the best organised & nicest Christmas fair we've done, congratulations all round.
For us personally it was a wonderful day, we sold out of food just as the crowd started leaving so it worked out perfectly. We would love to come back next year.
All the best to you all for Christmas & the new year.
Best regards, Dan & Shan.  Junkyard Smokebloke  Tue 10/12/2019
