Ipswich Music Day - Market Zone

Sunday 7th July, 12pm-8pm                                                                 

We have been asked by Ipswich Borough Council to take over a section of Christchurch Park at Ipswich Music Day to create a brand new market zone for the event this year. 

Ipswich Music Day is the largest free one-day music festival in the UK and is a brilliant celebration of music, culture and local talent. There will be six stages of live entertainment and music from local upcoming artists, fairground rides, street food, and retail stalls.

Our market zone will be located between the main pathway and the popular BBC Suffolk stage so we are expecting a great footfall. 

Suffolk County Christmas Fair 2024 Square

Suffolk County Christmas Fair 2024

22nd – 24th November

The wonderful Hintlesham Hall will be our home for the Suffolk County Christmas Fair for the second year running. The grounds look truly spectacular at Christmas time, lit up with an abundance of twinkling lights and decorated to perfection.

We have space for approx. 120 shopping stalls situated inside heated Shopping Marquees as well as outside in the grounds.

There are undercover seating areas for shoppers to enjoy the live music acts at the bandstand, selfies with Santa, stilt walkers & more. This really is a magical Christmas event! 



Past Events

Essex County Christmas Fair 2023

Sadly, due to the torrential rain leading up to the event causing problems with our parking area we had to cancel the Essex County Christmas Fair 2023 after opening but the few hours of trading that we did have were truly magical within the grounds of Layer Marney Tower. 

We are working on  a plan for 2024 to ensure the Essex County Christmas Fair 2024 can go ahead. Applications will be open shortly. 

 

 

 

Essex & Suffolk County Christmas Fair 2022

Featuring a fabulous selection of craft and artisan stalls from across Essex & Suffolk, tasty hot food and drink offerings, live music acts, stunning festive decorations and plenty of Christmas cheer it is clear to see why this event was so popular with the public. 

Over 2000 people came to shop on the day resulting in a sell out event for many of our stallholders!

We have plans to go bigger and even better for 2023, with two separate events over more days, larger venues and even more sparkle!
