The market will be held this weekend on Saturday, November 27 and Sunday, November 28 from 10am to 6pm; and from Friday, December 3 to Sunday, December 5 – when it also coincides with the popular Dickensian Christmas Festival – and then between Friday, December 10 and Sunday, December 12.

Dee O’Rourke from organisers Medway Council said: “We know the Rochester Christmas Market and the Dickensian Christmas Festival were greatly missed last year and I am delighted that we will be able to celebrate once again.”
