Dame District Christmas Market

The Dame District Christmas Market, located at the T-junction Dame Court, behind Dame Street, is a ten day event that happens every year before Christmas.

The best of crafts, food, drinks and music will make the place a Christmas Wonderland. We’re interested especially in the musical side of it all, obviously, and we’re happy to see that the organizers have managed to gather a bunch of really cool acts.  Among others, The Hot Sprockets – winners of the Play On The Day regional finals, The Statics, Rusty Fixtures and Dem Fools will perform.
