The final preparations are being put into place for this year’s Padstow Christmas Festival.

The 2023 Padstow Christmas Festival (Dec 7-10) has attracted worldwide attention, making appearances in ‘Best Christmas Market’ lists in the UK and internationally, including Lonely Planet, TimeOut, Daily Express, Sunday Times and Conde Nast Traveller.

In addition to a top line-up of celebrity and local chefs in the Sharp’s Chefs Theatre, a Christmas market will showcase more than 100 traders, community events, live music, fireworks and carols.

Festival co-founder and organiser, Tina Evans, said: “We’re very proud that the Padstow Christmas Festival supports Cornish tourism, encouraging visitors to come to our region during the winter, contributing to our local economy and supporting jobs – it really has become an essential out-of-season event.

“With worldwide coverage and a real buzz in both the town and across Cornwall, it really does feel like all eyes will be on Padstow this December.”
