"Looking forward to our 4th year at Rochester Christmas Market. Where else could you go where the atmosphere is fantastic, well attended every day over the 3 weekends, well organised and always guaranteed to sell lots! We've been asked to attend other big Christmas markets but each year at Rochester has proved to be as good as the last. We love it."
