Southampton Christmas Festival, on Above Bar pedestrian precinct, features a traditional German market with unique, individually designed alpine chalets with traditional German fayre, from bratwurst and waffles to gingerbread hearts and candied fruit.
Over 40 independent stallholders selling a range of authentic gifts such as wooden toys, baskets, soaps, lamps, jewellery as well as Christmas decorations.
Daily entertainment with musicians performing
The chalet opening hours are from 10am – 8pm, with a 2 hour extension up to 10 pm for the bars.
Don’t miss a huge highlight of the festival – the ‘Flying Santa’ who takes to the sky over the city centre twice a day. Afterwards, Santa will invite children to accompany him to the large Advent calendar and will hand out small treats to all children – provided they have been good!
