Our brand new Christmas Market comes to Trinity Park, Ipswich!

Pre-booking has now closed but you can still purchase your tickets on the day; £6 adults, £5 concessions 65+, under 16’s £1!

Soak up the sights, smells and sounds of Christmas at our very first Christmas Market on Saturday 4th December at Trinity Park, Ipswich!

Showcasing over 70 small businesses from across the region, we have an exciting variety of high-quality, unique gifts, decorations, crafts and festive foods to get you in the Christmas spirit at Trinity Park (Home of the Suffolk Show). The venue lends itself to a large well-ventilated undercover barn space to protect buyers and sellers from the potential Winter elements!

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Community Fundraiser Karen Mitchell said “We always ensure a wide variety of different stalls, from homemade crafts, food stalls, Christmas gifts, toys, unique gifts for men, women and children, personalised items from local designers, boutiques and bespoke craftsmen. We always limit the number of stalls selling items of similar genres to ensure happy shoppers and successful sellers.

Alongside the shopping stands, there will be a range of popular food and drink stalls, serving up alcoholic beverages including festive hot drinks and mulled wine. Children will get the chance to meet Santa in his grotto (independent stall, additional fees apply).

Dogs are allowed on site but not in the Cattle Shed where the majority of stalls will be placed.

Tickets are priced at £6 adults, £5 concessions, under 16’s go free!

And keeping with the Christmas spirit, Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Christmas cards are on sale now! Available in their Charity Shops, Support Centres and over the phone. With lots of festive designs to choose from there is something to suit all tastes and at £3.95 for a pack of 10 they’re a bargain too!
