Christmas in Glastonbury


Christmas in Glastonbury 2020

Well if truth be known, none of us really know what we will be able to do this Christmas so we are aiming to let you know of the planned events and activities in your area. We will keep our hands poised over the mouse to update this information as necessary!

Glastonbury Virtual Winter Solstice

This year Glastonbury’s Winter Solstice will be virtual. On 20th December you can join the community in sharing the light of kindness.

The event will be free for all to enjoy from the Glastonbury Information Centre Facebook Page.

A visit to Father Christmas

It’s not Christmas without a visit to the man himself and there are several different options to visit Father Christmas this year.

This year Santa will be visiting the Somerset Rural Life Museum on 6th December. Once you have meet him and received your gift you can then enjoy the festive Reindeer Trial around the museum in your own time.

Glastonbury Farmers Market

This December see the return of the fantastic Somerset Farmers Market and just in time for Christmas you can get everything you need to have a tasty Christmas celebration.

Glastonbury Frost Fayre

Unfortunately, this year’s Frost Fayre cannot take place. The annual event provided a spectacle which attracted more than 200 stall holders and thousands of visitors to Glastonbury. With five live stages of entertainment and music, together with a static display of vintage equipment, the whole of Glastonbury for one day of the year virtually comes to a standstill.

We can’t wait to see the return of this fantastic event in the years to come.

Christmas Shopping in Glastonbury

Well Christmas shopping this year is being done with a difference!

There is a big movement to #shoplocal this year to support our local small businesses, Glastonbury High Street offers a wealth of local shops perfect for picking up a present with a difference.

Mendip Markets also runs a weekly market in Glastonbury on Tuesdays from 9am to 3pm.

Finally we have to mention our fabulous #shoplocal Christmas 2020 shopping directory which can be found HERE.
