Bluewater Christmas Market

In December 2007, award-winning exhibition organisers Media 10 opened the first ever Bluewater Christmas Market & Fair, transforming an area of disused land into a magical festive scene for 23 days.

Exceeding expectations as usual, Media 10 created much more than just a Christmas market. The event housed the UK’s biggest Christmas tree, a genuine Victorian carousel, 100 traditional wooden chalets selling gifts and toys, Christmas decorations, gourmet food and home accessories.

And for kids, there were live reindeer, turkeys and geese, an enchanted Santa’s Grotto, storytellers, carol singers, entertainers in traditional costume and hourly snow shows.

With Bluewater Christmas Market & Fair, Media 10 turned the accepted exhibition formula on its head – taking the event directly to the audience.
