Christmas fair

Get ready for the upcoming festive season with our annual Christmas fair!

The Fulham Palace annual Christmas fair is back for its third year. This year’s event, kindly sponsored by Douglas & Gordon, features a variety of activities and amusements in addition to the small business market. Between browsing the stalls and enjoying mulled wine and minced pies, explore the additional festivities taking place.

The market

Our Christmas fair market, done in collaboration with Duck Pond Markets, showcases a variety of small business stalls of fine foods and gifts, perfect for buying some thoughtful presents. With over 65 stalls, you’re bound to find a gift for everyone on your list!

The Fulham Palace garden stall will be selling handcrafted Christmas wreaths made by our gardeners and volunteers, while the museum shop will also have festive decorations and gifts, with each purchase supporting the Palace.

Interested in an evening experience? Adults can join our Christmas fair preview on Friday 2 December.
