Festive Fun Beside St. Edmundsbury Cathedral:

Not satisfied with just one Christmas Market, The Bury St. Edmunds Christmas Fayre packs at least five into a festive weekend at the end of November. Set off by the town's dramatic St. Edmundsbury Cathedral, the Christmas markets - Victorian, International, Cathedral and Historic - cover Angel Hill and fill the Athenaeum and Cathedral precincts. The regular weekend provisions markets turns out in its holiday best too. All kinds of goodies and handicrafts are for sale. And don't miss the Young Enterprise Students' stalls on Cornhill Walk on Saturday.
