Some of these events are happening very soon...
Whether we like it or not, the countdown to Christmas is officially on.
The big day is now officially only next month, which means it might be time to start getting organised in the present department.
And what better way to do that than to scope out a Christmas market to attend.
Whether you visit festive fairs to get yourself in the Christmas spirit or to find gift inspiration, they are a great way to support local businesses and creators, and we have plenty on offer in and around Northampton – some even start pretty soon.
Below are details on 25 Christmas markets and events taking place in and around Northampton in 2023.
