Durham is a small city in the North-East of England, not far from Newcastle. It is home to Durham Cathedral, the University of Durham and also the annual Durham Christmas Festival and Market. in December 2014 the Durham Christmas Festival celebrated it's 21st year and ran from the 5th-7th of the month and had over 300 small business taking part.

Most of the stalls were hosted in the Craft and Gift Marquee outside the Cathedral, and the remainder in the Cathedral Cloisters and Durham Market Place. The permanent stalls in Durham Market Hall were also open for the duration of the weekend.
