Auckley Christmas Market is held the 2nd Tuesday of the month of December. This very successful event is organised by local volunteers, and is a credit to them in giving up their valuable time to attend meetings, carry out health and safety checks, risk assessments and most importantly set up and dismantle the market stalls. The market attracts traders from various locations; the furthest to date from London, the majority of traders have supported this event since day one.
We now have huge crowds who attend this event, they also come back year after year making the Christmas Market the biggest and best in Doncaster.
The Christmas Market began in 2005. It has over trebled in size and has established itself as an annual event. It takes place on the second Tuesday of the month of December.
A small group of volunteers from Auckley formed a committee and called the group Auckley All 4 All. Our purpose was to raise funds for a local community project and support other local community groups. One of the first events in December 2005 to be organised, was a Christmas Market. The market was so successful even with just 20 stalls back then, but with so much positive feedback from traders and visitors, it was decided by the committee to make it an annual event. Each year the market gets bigger and better in 2010 there were over 70 stallholders, many traders return year after year and we thank these traders for their continued support. In fact the majority of traders book their stalls for the following year to avoid disappointment. Traders and visitors come from Lancashire, Nottinghamshire, West & North Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The Christmas Market is a great start to the festive season.
The Market now comprises of over 70 stalls with a wide variety of quality goods on sale including, fresh meats and poultry, organic produce, gifts, decorations, personalised beer bottles and tasters, handcrafted cards, branded perfumes, jewellery, handbags, ladies fashions, Christmas wreathes and plants, pet accessories and much, much more! You will be spoilt for choice for what's on offer!
The Christmas Market is near to Doncaster's Robin Hood Airport in the small village of Auckley, near Doncaster, on part of the B1396.
