Christmas markets in Ramsbottom are set to return this weekend for the first time since the pandemic. The Ramsbottom Christmas Festival will welcome residents on Sunday, December 4 with stallholders boasting a variety of gifts, crafts, cakes and more. The festive stalls will be found at the Civic Hall, St Paul’s Gardens, and the area next to the Ramsbottom Urn in the town centre. Children will have the chance to meet Father Christmas and festival goers will be invited to take part in a seasonal singalong around the streets, accompanied by a local saxophonist.
