To win the award, the festive fayre will need to receive the most votes on the Holiday Letting’s website.

Voting ends on November 30, with the market receiving the most votes to be crowned ‘UK’s Best Christmas Market’ on December 1.

Saskia Welman, spokeswoman for HolidayLettings.co.uk, said: “Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre is more than just a market and makes it onto our list as it offers not just an amazing Christmas shopping experience but also a spectacular firework display and a remarkable opening night parade by the local school children.

“There is a mix of free children’s entertainment and food tastings with cookery demonstrations and it finishes with a lovely traditional carol service accompanied by the Salvation Army Band.

“We would encourage all those who admire this amazing Christmas Fayre to get behind them and vote.”
