It’s all happening this weekend. If you are coming from the Devon end of the A39, do be aware of road closures at night.

9th December is Bude’s late night shopping experience. Assisted by the Rotary Club, Santa will be leaving the Crescent Car Park at 5.30pm before heading to Chadd’s Yard and Queen Street, to set the ball rolling.

Meanwhile, over the weekend, Bude Beach Hut Christmas Market will be happening on Saturday and Sunday . The Bude Christmas Market, which last appeared three years ago, consists of 40 Beach Huts at Crooklets Beach used to display items from local artisans from 11-am-4pm each day.

There will also be delicious Beach Hut food stalls.
