Borde Hill Christmas Market Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November 2022

This November, escape the rush of the high street and indulge in a spot of festive shopping at the Borde Hill Christmas Market, taking place at The Stables, the Garden Gift Shop and Marquee and Green Tree Gallery. The hand-selected stalls will showcase local artisan treats, from delicious food and drink to tempt your taste buds, to unique crafts and gifts for all the family.

The Stables with its Victorian Walled Garden will offer visitors a varied selection of over 30 stalls selling locally produced food and drink celebrating the best of Sussex and the South East in both indoor and marquee spaces. Food trucks will be located at the heart of the event between The Stables and the Garden, offering delicious local food.

Live Music

Inspired by the 3-part harmonies of the Andrews Sisters, vintage jazz trio The Three Penny Piece will provide the perfect festive backdrop to the weekend, singing old-time Christmas jazz and swing hits from the 1930’s, 40’s & 50’s. Their one hour performances will take place in The Stables at 11am and 1pm on both days of the Christmas Market.

Festive Family Fun

Children can visit Father Christmas in his Grotto (booking required), take a ride on the mini carousel or explore the Adventure Playground in the Garden. In Santa’s Grotto, lucky ticket holders will be greeted by one of Santa’s little elves who will take them through to his Reindeer Stables where young visitors can write their letter to Santa and make food for hungry reindeer to sprinkle outside of their home on Christmas Eve. Children will also be able to decorate an Advent Calendar to take home to help them count down to the big day. On the ring of Santa’s bell, another one of his elves will lead each family from the Reindeer Stables into his magical grotto, where the man in red will be ready to listen to their Christmas wishes before giving a present to each child.

The Garden will be open, weather permitting, and during your winter stroll you might like to buy a hot drink at The Gardeners’ Retreat Café.  Why not purchase an annual Membership to Borde Hill Garden and enjoy a special offer of 15 months membership for the price of 12 months – the perfect Christmas gift that lasts all year.
