About the event
It’s back for 2022 – Join us for our most festive event of the year, the Didcot Festive Market.
Once again, we have teamed up with Didcot Events to sprinkle some early Christmas sparkle to the town with our third annual festive market, and this year it’s bigger than before.
Taking over the entire Orchard Centre and the top of Station Road from outside the cinema end, this year will also see the greatest number of stalls booked all to be part of a festive feelgood day.
With over 60 gift, craft, food drink, charity, and community stalls, and there will be some children’s rides too. Walk about entertainers, balloon modellers and face painters will all be a part of this magnificent day.
You will be able to see and meet Santa outside Cineworld with Play2Give’s charity stall where we will have a mega tombola. There will be a live nativity farm and we will have horse drawn carriage rides.
Sponsored by local companies including Draycott Engineering, William Jones estate agents and The Crafters Emporium the event since the very first in 2020 has also helped to raise over £2,859 for our charity enabling Play2Give to support a number of local children, health and disability causes.
As well as Play2Give being the event’s primary beneficiary, we also enable other charities in the area to generate their own funds and awareness and giving a platform for local performers to showcase their talents. Performances including Angels Performing Arts and we will have song and dance from Vocalize choir and Oxford Rock Choir.
