Wolverton Christmas Market Trail


Wondering what to do on the first day of December?

We’ve got an idea for the lovely folks of Milton Keynes who are feeling festive. How about a Christmas market trail of Wolverton involving three great events taking place this Sunday (1st December)?

You can start your Christmas market trail at Bar Bar Black Sheep, Wolverton Square where you can enjoy a couple of hours of browsing and buying some local handmade gifts on offer at their Pop Up Mini Market. What a great way to start the trail whilst getting your morning coffee or a tasty hot chocolate. Market open from 11am until 3pm.

Next on the agenda is a short walk to The Craufurd Arms where you will experience all things alternative with their Winter MK Alternative Market, which runs from 1pm until 5.30pm. Stalls with themed items for sale include; clothes, shoes, collectables, games, comics or homeware. As well as stalls, there is food available and of course plenty of drink choice to keep you going.

We’re heading to Old Wolverton on the third leg of the Wolverton Christmas Market Trail. The Galleon pub is hosting a Christmas market which has stalls featuring local handmade delights, perfect for Christmas gift ideas and stocking fillers. Of course, the pub has a food menu and plenty of choice on drinks, hot or cold.

The last leg of the Wolverton Christmas Market Trail is a short walk to the Old School House in Old Wolverton where you will find a Christmas Pop Up Pub, hosted by Bar and Tender. They will be providing Christmas ale, Christmas gin, mulled wine and mulled cider. You will also be able to get your hands on some festive gifts and your mouths around some Christmas cakes and mince pies. They are on until 7pm so this will be a perfect end to the Wolverton Christmas Market Trail.

What to bring with you?

  • Friends and family
  • A smile
  • Monies
  • Warm clothes for walking in between markets
