Come and join us at our great Christmas Events!

The Southampton Christmas Festival is organised by WELA Märkte for the third time in the main shopping area at Above Bar Street near the Bargate. Once more the emphasis is on top quality arts and crafts and food stalls with European food.


The main attraction at Southampton will be the twice-daily show of the Flying Santa, with a world champion tightrope artist carrying on a family tradition of 300 years in high-wire artistry. He will fly over the market in his sleigh with his reindeer at a height of 35m and at the end will hand out a small present to each child. This unique show is the only one in the UK and is sure to be a show-stopper.

The market stalls are also unique for a Christmas Market as each one was individually-designed inside and out by a set designer to enhance the Christmas spirit.
