Recapping the Festive Fun of this year’s “Made in Cambridge” Christmas Market

The Museum spent the weekend celebrating local craftsmanship and community spirit. The Enid Porter room and the courtyard hosted the “Made in Cambridge” Christmas Market between Friday 24th and Sunday 26th of November. The event, which brought together 16 talented artisans, craft people and makers, was a big success! We welcomed 700 people to the market who explored Italian Sparkling wines, hand-cut lino prints, local honey and many more wonderful local vendors. 

The market, an intimate and well-curated selection of local makers, showcased the incredible talents of Cambridgeshire’s artisans. We were so pleased to be joined by the following talented makers.

As we embrace the season of giving, the Museum of Cambridge encourages visitors to support local businesses and artisans. Some of these vendors can be found year–round in the Museum of Cambridge shop, which works hard to support Cambridge makers.

The event coincided with #MuseumShopSunday, a global initiative promoting the unique offerings of museum shops. Visitors had the opportunity to explore new seasonal cards and gifts, with proceeds going directly towards supporting the Museum of Cambridge and the local makers we stock.
