St Albans knows a thing or two about markets, having one of the oldest regular markets in the UK, dating back to the 9th century. So what better City to hold a European-style Christmas Market? This year's event will be part of a winter wonderland with an ice bar, funfair rides, a high-tech Santa’s Grotto and a variety of live entertainment.
For the first time this year, the St Albans Christmas Market is being hosted within Meraki Christmas Festival, so not only will you be able to shop for unique hand-made goods from picturesque wooden chalets, you’ll also be able to enjoy all the fun of a winter wonderland with rides, a spectacular virtual reality Santa’s grotto experience, Christmas movies, skating, an ice bar and much, much more.
Meraki Christmas Festival is located at the bottom of Holywell Hill, adjacent to Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre (AL1 2DL).

Visit the pretty historic village of Redbourn to celebrate authentic and quality local crafts, food and music. 70+ stalls overflowing with delicious food, beautiful crafts and gift ideas; seasonal music showcasing the best local talent; Yule raffle with lots of amazing prizes from local businesses, plus Santa Claus!

Blag Theatre Company presents: Blag Theatre Company's 20th Christmas Show.
If you love live theatre but don’t particularly like the idea of going to a Pantomime seeing: Su ('Hi-De-Hi') Pollard playing the Ditsy Fairy in 'Cinderella', Mike ('Bucks Fizz') Nolan playing King Rat in 'Dick Whittington' or Russell ('Large Astrologer') Grant playing Humpty in 'Humpty Dumpty'…Again! Then Blag Theatre Company have the ideal solution!
Come along to the Pump House Theatre, Local Board Road, Watford, for a veritable feast of Christmas delights.
A fun filled show with songs, sketches and audience participation akimbo! Ideal for all the family.
Tickets £14 (concessions £12) Opening night ALL seats £10
