Shoppers searching for homemade gifts and festive fun should make their way to St Davids tomorrow (Saturday), for the Oriel y Parc Christmas Market.

Open from 10am-3pm, the event will feature a wide range of stalls stocked with locally produced gifts, food and crafts products, while people can refuel on yuletide favourites from the on-site Pilgrims Café.

There is also a range of other festive activities taking place at Oriel y Parc between now and the end of December, with free drop-in Arty Craft Workshops from 10am to 4pm every Saturday and Sunday (except December 3, the day of the Christmas Market).

Families can also follow the Find the Reindeer Trail every day from Saturday 19 November for £2 per child, which will include a special prize at the end.

The North Pole post box will also be available from Saturday, November 19 until December 20, giving people a chance to post their letter to Santa. They’ll make sure it gets there safely, then you can collect your reply three days after posting, along with a small free gift.

There’s also On Your Doorstep exhibition, open daily from 10am to 4pm, which could give you some new inspiration to explore the nature, geology and archaeology that exists all around us, over the festive period.

Oriel y Parc Manager, Claire Bates said: “We look forward to welcoming fantastic local businesses and customers back to our Christmas Market, having had to keep stalls outside last year due to Covid-19.

“We are delighted to be able to open our doors again this year, welcoming stallholders inside the building and in our courtyard. We’ll also be offering a range of hot food and drink to help you keep warm as you shop local.

“This is one of many free events being organised at Oriel y Parc and other National Park Authority attractions as part of the Winter of Well-being support programme, helping communities across the Park to stay well this winter.”

The Oriel y Parc Christmas Market will take place from 10am-3pm on Saturday 3 December. Entry is free and parking in the Oriel y Parc car park is also free.
