Padstow Christmas Festival
Thursday 1st December – Sunday 4th December 2016
Padstow Christmas Festival is a real festive treat and one of the country’s leading Christmas festivals.
Here you can make a holiday of your Christmas shopping and preparations on a magical weekend getaway. Some of the best food and drinks producers from across the South West will be there, along with local artisan producers selling beautiful jewellery, artwork and homeware.
There will also be pop-up street food stalls if you’re getting a little peckish – or you can take the opportunity to enjoy one of the award-winning Padstow restaurants (although we suggest you book first).
One of the main attractions are the chef demonstrations happening throughout the weekend including some of the finest chefs from around the country such as: Nathan Outlaw, Paul Ainsworth, Jack and Rick Stein, Angela Hartnett, Brian Turner, Michael Caines, Anthony Worrall Thompson, James Martin and our very own Tom Hunter.
There will also be entertainment throughout the weekend including a winter lantern parade on Friday afternoon, live music, carolling and a firework display on Friday night.
It’s also a great opportunity to explore the winding streets of Padstow – discover lovely independent shops and boutiques, wander through the harbour, take a stroll on the white sandy beaches or even a boat trip over to Rock.
