It certainly won't be very big - just a line of stalls in the Promenade. They may offer better than the tat that most markets sell so it could be made up for in quality. And it looks to be for two weeks only.
I wouldn't make it the only reason to visit Cheltenham
No it's not big at all, maybe about 10 stalls. Not worth travelling far for it IMO.
Ok, thanks for the info. I was planning to go in the middle of Dec however the markets finish at the start of Dec
I wouldn't waste your money! I live in Cheltenham and I wouldn't go into town especially to see it! Last year there were less than 20 stalls, and most were selling food!
Thee is still a yearly Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre with a lot of individual stool holders in numerous locations over the town and that was extremely well attended when we went it was actually a push to get into some buildings sometimes.
So that's another one to consider, more info here: http://www.burystedmundschristmasfayre.co.uk/ but try this for a list of uk events:http://www.christmasmarkets.com/UK.html
went to Cheltenham Christmas Market Sunday 18th November,not worth travelling a long distance just for it, but Cheltenham is a nice place to do a Christmas shop and to encorporate the market into it
I was amazed at the size and quality of Gloucester's Christmas Market this year. Far, far better than previous years and only 10 miles from Cheltenham.
There were major traffic problems though, caused by the huge (and I suspect unexpected) influx of people when word got out.
Hopefully that aspect will be sorted by next year.
