Winterland Market makes welcome return to Guildhall Square

14 December 2022

The best of local craft, food and entertainment will be hosted under Ireland's largest Christmas tree when Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Winterland Market makes a welcome return to Guildhall Square this weekend.


The market from Friday December 16th to Sunday December 18th is returning after a three year absence and aims to create a festive experience for locals and visitors to the city centre where they can pick up some unique gifts and enjoy local street food and entertainment.


It will feature 23 traders inside wooden cabins and a bandstand with a host of live acts.


The event represents the climax of Council's Christmas programming and Mayor of Derry and Strabane, Councillor Sandra Duffy, urged the public to come along and see the wide range of stallholders for themselves.  


"The market is the perfect opportunity to get into the festive spirit and help with prepping your Christmas shopping and cooking for the big day," she said.


“It is a brilliant addition to our Christmas retail offering on the weekend before Christmas and is an ideal chance to source a unique gift - remember when you shop local you are supporting our own businesses and economy.


"There are some great musical acts lined up and Guildhall Square is looking resplendent with the tree and lights so why not come along and soak up the festive atmosphere?"  


The Winterland Market runs from Friday 16th – Sunday 18th December from 11am – 6pm in Guildhall Square.
