Tankerton Christmas Market Sunday 6th December 2015

For the 6th year running, Tankerton Christmas Market will take place at Whitstable Castle & Gardens on Sunday 6th December, opening at 11a.m. & closing at 4.30p.m. Once again, you can come & do your Christmas gift shopping in beautiful surroundings with craft, charity & trade stalls spread across the three floors of Whitstable castle, on the hard standing & grass outside in the grounds. Demand for tables inside the Castle has been so high that there are only a few spaces left inside, after the success of last year's event. However, there is still space outside on the hardstanding & on the grass. Further details of these stalls will be put on the website at a later date.

Refreshments will be available in Whitstable Castle's orangery; the outside unit selling traditional hot food & drinks; candy floss; cakes; cider, mead & apple juice from Kingswood Cider; & gluhwein from Whitstable Twinning Association.

Entertainment will include fairground rides suitable for children, magic & balloon modelling by Uncle Myles and face painting. Other family entertainment will be booked before December.

New this year will be Santa Claus's Grotto in the Castle Studio. If you want to book to see Santa, let the organiser know & your request will be passed on.

Please note that there is no parking available on site for visitors or for stallholders. However, there is plenty of parking in surrounding roads & some in the Gorrell Tank car park facing the harbour. The organisers reserve the right to alter any of the attractions etc should the need arise.
