A Christmas market is set to be held in Ripley in December.

Real Markets, which also hosts markets in Grassington, Ilkley and Harrogate Farmers’ Market, will hold the free event in the castle courtyard at Ripley Castle.

It will include 40 independent and artisan traders, as well as festive carols from local school children and craft activities.

There will also be a visit from Father Christmas for children from 10am until 11.15am.

Lucy Allen, director of Real Markets, said: 

“We’re very excited to bring a specially curated local market to the magical setting of Ripley. It offers a fantastic day out for all ages, thanks to the historic, rural setting, where visitors can enjoy the village and castle grounds. 

“We hope it brings some real, traditional Christmas magic to visitors.”

The event will be held on Sunday, December 10, from 10am until 3pm.

Admission to the grounds is free and dogs on leads are also welcome.
