Victorian Matlock – Christmas Market 2021

Victorian Matlock – Christmas Market 2021

From Friday 3 – Sunday 5 December 2021, the town will welcome people from across the East Midlands and further afield for what has become one of the region’s top Christmas events since it was established in 1994.

After a Covid-enforced break in 2020, this year’s Victorian Matlock – Christmas Market weekend is set to be the best yet with more than 200 stalls and traders offering hand-crafted, artisan goods, local produce and of course, festive refreshments.

Held in Derbyshire Dales District Council’s historic and award-winning Hall Leys Park, Matlock, the family-friendly event also plays host to some of the area’s best festive entertainment as well as Proctors Fun Fair with its popular dodgems, waltzer and helter skelter rides, as well as a whole host of child-friendly attractions.

Entertainers include James McKay, who supplied owls for The Philosopher's Stone film, who will be at the event with his owls. Entertainment will also be provided by Thoresby Colliery Brass Band, Mark Handley Entertains (vocalist), and Gen Steel Band.

On Saturday and Sunday, children get to see the big man himself at Santa’s Grotto, which will again be provided by Matlock Derwent Valley Lions Club, with the proceeds going to support local charities.

The three-day extravaganza will be rounded off with the popular Victorian Matlock – Christmas Market finale - the breath-taking Christmas fireworks display will be taking place on the Sunday at 5:30pm.

The event is sponsored by Special Events Organisers, Proctors Fun Fair, Derbyshire Dales District Council, and Matlock & District Business Group.
