What are you doing on the Friday 11th of December till Sunday the 13th? Well, we’re kind of having this thing and you’re all invited.

The big C word is just around the corner and we’re turning The Great Baltic Warehouse, in the Baltic Triangle, into a Winter Wonderland fit for Father Christmas himself. Christmas brings the big kid out in everyone and this weekend festival will take you back to a time when Father Christmas was real. Any kids reading this, we’re sorry.


Now, you can’t have a festival without food and drink so we’ve some of the best restaurants in the city, some of the best bakers with millions of mince pies and a secret mulled wine garden with fake snow and everything. The space at night will be illuminated by Christmas lights and our centre-piece, the tree, which we hope you’ll help us decorate. We’re going to also have a gift shop where we’ll be bringing some of the best local arts and craft people together in one space so you can give the gift of local this year. We’ll have some of our extra special Christmas hampers on sale too. If all that wasn’t enough, we’ve got a grown up Santa’s grotto. Bask in the lap of our Santa and tell him what you want this Christmas, although we think the mulled wine garden will answer the majority of people’s wishes.


Sound good? You know it does. The soundtrack to this incredible weekend will be provided by lots of local DJs, live music and some carol singers destined to bring us all together, in one big roof for an incredible weekend of wintery fun. Bring your own sleigh.


We’re launching with a special weekend pass that will get you access to the festival every day of the weekend. That’s one hell of a weekend. Soon we will be adding day tickets so keep your eyes peeled. Tickets are very limited so act quick. We’ll be releasing food traders and our other little surprises for the weekend from now until the event itself so make sure you join our Facebook event page here.
