Durham's St Cuthbert Day Festival 2020 will see the return of the Durham Cathedral cloisters craft fair market.
The Durham Cathedral craft fair will take place on Saturday March 21 to round off its St Cuthbert Festival 2020 celebrations.
The St Cuthbert Festival itself is four days of events that celebrate the life of Durham's nominal patron saint, St Cuthbert. Last year events included music performances, services and free Durham Cathedral tours.
As well as the St Cuthbert Procession, the culmination of the St Cuthbert Festival on Saturday March 21 will include the St Cuthbert Festival craft fair market in Durham Cathedral cloisters, which will include regional food and drink specialists.
Colin Wilkes, managing director of Durham Markets, said: "We're delighted to be bringing this market back to the Cloisters of Durham Cathedral again this year.
"The day's events always bring plenty of people into the city and particularly to the Cathedral, and the setting for the market, in the Cloisters, is particularly beautiful. We're hoping to attract both new and established food and drink producers to this one-off market."
Last year visitors to the market were able to buy locally produced honey, cheeses, sausages, scotch eggs, cakes and desserts, sauces and spice packs, homemade jams and craft beers.
If you are a food and drink producer and want to have a stall at the Durham Cathedral cloisters market, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information (there is no availability for suppliers of hot take away food).
St Cuthbert's Festival, culminating in the St Cuthbert Procession, is an important time in the history of Durham, and there are plenty of events across the four days. St Cuthbert's Day falls on March 20 and last year, as well as the market there were a number of events taking place in the city as part of the St Cuthbert Festival celebrations.
The annual St Cuthbert's Procession from Chester le Street to Durham on Saturday March 21 will arrive at the Shrine of St Cuthbert in the afternoon. You can see pictures from last year in our St Cuthbert Procession roundup. During the day, there will be free Durham Cathedral tours and storytelling for children, and a Sung Eucharist at 5.15pm.
