November Events in Charlestown

Charlestown Christmas Market

Date: 23 to 24 Nov / Time: 11am - 4pm

Charlestown Christmas Market has two locations - the main venue is at Penrice Academy where some 100 traders will be selling a vast range of food, drinks and crafts in the comfort of the large sports hall, drama studio and gymnasium. This venue is guaranteed to be warm and dry, and with its plentiful car parking, provides us with the perfect venue for the superb range of gift items.

The other location we are using is in the grounds of The Rashleigh Arms in Charlestown. There will be around 16 traders located in the marquee, selling a wide range of local food, drink and crafts. The Rashleigh Arms will also be putting on some special events of their own, and there will be singing and other live music at both venues throughout the weekend. There are 2 children's rides located at Penrice Academy, as well as 3 outdoor caterers.

Both venues will have live entertainment all weekend. If you love to hear choirs, Charlestown is the place to be.
