The annual Hawkshead Christmas Fair is a traditional family fair offering seasonal shopping and entertainment. There's free admission and all the picturesque alleys, squares and cobbled streets of Hawkshead village will be seasonally decorated.

There'll be children's rides and visitors will be entertained by some great street entertainers, including jugglers, stilt walkers, magicians and street theatre, with live street music all day. There'll be late night shopping (until 8pm on Friday) and over 50 indoor and outdoor seasonal craft and gift stalls. The stalls in the Market Hall and Beatrix Potter Gallery will be selling everything from handmade rugs and trinkets to pies, puddings and pickles and Father Christmas will be in his grotto.

As part of the fair the well-known local pianist Peter Brown will be playing light music in Hawkshead Church from 2:30pm to 3:30pm, with donations invited to the Church Tower Fund. Cakes and hot drinks will be served from 1pm, with Fair Trade products and church goods also on sale.

A Winter Beer Festival will be held with the Hawkshead pubs selling twenty-five selected winter ales and beers and Hawkshead Brewery will be offering an extensive range of festive ales. There is extra parking at a discount rate on the day. A lantern parade takes place at 4pm on Saturday with a magical display during the traditional carol singing in the Main Square at 4.30pm.
