Special Charity Preview Evening
Durham Christmas Festival Craft & Gift Marquee - Palace Green
Thursday 29th November, 3 to 7pm
Durham Christmas Festival is holding a special Charity Preview Evening in aid of St Cuthbert's Hospice. Anyone can purchase tickets to the Craft & Gift Marquee on Palace Green, and enjoy a preview of the festival stalls on the Thursday night, prior to the Friday morning start of the three day festival.
Net proceeds from the Charity Preview Evening will go to St Cuthbert's Hospice.
All proceeds from the preview evening will go to St Cuthbert's Hospice 30th Anniversary Fundraising Appeal. 2018 is a special year for St Cuthbert’s Hospice as it marks a significant milestone – thirty years of making every day count for people with life-limiting illnesses in County Durham.
There will be no road closures on the afternoon/ evening of Thursday 29th November, and the Cathedral bus will be running up to Palace Green. To provide transport to visitors to the Charity Preview Evening, the Cathedral bus will run with an extended timetable, until 7pm.
Additionally, the Belmont Park and Ride will stay open until 7.45pm. This allows visitors to take the last Cathedral bus from Palace Green at 7pm to the City Centre, and connect to the 7.15pm (last) bus to Belmont Park and Ride from outside the Gala Theatre.
