Please note that tickets for the Christmas Market are now sold out!

Just a friendly reminder that ticket-holders need to arrive within their allocated time slot but can stay at the event for as long as they like (up to closing time). If you arrive outside of your allocated time slot, you will not be guaranteed entry due to capacity at the Castle.

Nottingham Castle annual pass holders will be allowed free entry during any time slot.

If you don't have a ticket, limited walk-ups (£1 entry per person, including children) will be available at the door, subject to site capacity at that time. You may have to wait at busy times, particularly at the start of each session.

The Christmas Market is brought to you by It's in Nottingham in partnership with Nottingham Castle and Nottingham City Council.
