    Christmas Weekends at Cromford Mills

    Christmas Markets - Every Weekend in December - Free entry


    2nd December 2023 - 17th December 2023 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

    Step into a winter wonderland at Cromford Mills and experience the magic of Christmas like never before! Every weekend in December, our Christmas Markets will transport you to a festive haven, open from 10 am to 4 pm on the 2-3, 9-10, and 16-17 of December. Dive into the holiday spirit with a unique twist—meet the Grinch himself on the 16th and 17th during the Christmas market! For a heartwarming encounter, visit Father Christmas or indulge in a special story time breakfast with him at Wheatcroft’s Cafe. As you explore the markets, and Community Christmas Tree Festival, sip on festive drinks and treats at our cozy cafes. The merry atmosphere continues with live music performances throughout December, featuring the talented John Gill entertaining the crowds each weekend. On the 9th, join the Rock Choir from 12 pm, and on the 16th, the Matlock Tuneless Choir will add to the joy. And what’s Christmas without a tree? From the 25th of November, choose from our selection of Christmas trees to bring the holiday spirit into your home. Join us on the 15th of December for the Cromford Christmas Carol Service at 6:00 pm starting in the mill yard then wassailing to St Mary’s Church—a magical evening of carols and community spirit. Make this Christmas unforgettable at Cromford Mills! Find out more
