The popular annual Christmas Gift and Food Fair welcomes visitors from all over Yorkshire and the North East through the door of the spectacular Ripon Cathedral.
With over a hundred stalls offering a wide selection of unusual gifts, crafts and local food to help you find the perfect gift this Christmas.
Turkey Sandwiches and mulled wine will be served throughout the day as well as musical entertainment from local Choirs. The fair is also popular with families coming to visit Santa in his grotto.
Atkinson of Ripon will once again be providing a park and ride service this year from Wolseley UK on the Boroughbridge Road. Buses will run to and from the Wolseley Car Park and the cathedral frequently throughout the day. Parking is free but we would ask visitors using this service for a donation to be given on the bus.
Margaret Hammond, Ripon Cathedral Development Campaign Manager said:
We are very grateful to Wolseley of Ripon. Parking spaces in Ripon are limited. particularly during the Christmas Fair and we hope by providing this park and ride service, will make it easier for our visitors to the Fair.
The Christmas Gift and Food Fair takes place at Ripon Cathedral on Saturday 24 November. The opening times have been extended slightly to now open from 9.30am and closing at 4.30pm. Entry is £3 Cash on the door, entry for children is free.
