Presents Galore, East Anglia’s biggest and most spectacular Christmas Fair, is back for 2022.

It’s returning to the surroundings of the Rowley Mile Racecourse, in Newmarket, from Friday to Sunday, November 25 to 27, for a Christmas shopping extravaganza.

Visitors will be able to browse over 100 boutique stalls and immerse yourself in the atmosphere, sights and aromas of Christmas.

Sponsored by Global Group Racing, Presents Galore is a treasure trove of unique gifts and experiences. With something for everyone, you’re bound to make someone’s Christmas.

Discover interiors, clothing and footwear, jewellery and accessories, food and drinks stalls, outdoor living, and gifts for children, including toys, clothes and accessories. A full list of exhibitors can be found online

New for 2022, the event is supporting Cambridge Children’s Hospital and the National Horseracing Museum. All proceeds from the event will be donated to these two local causes, including 100% of all ticket sales.

Dr Rob Heuschkel and Dr Cathy Walsh, clinical leads for Cambridge Children’s Hospital, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the generous support from events like Presents Galore and are delighted to be one of the beneficiary charities this year – it’s set to be a fantastic event for the region and we look forward to speaking to attendees about our pioneering plans to change children’s healthcare for the East of England.”

And Anne-Marie Hogan, National Horseracing Museum director, said of Presents Galore: “We are thrilled to be involved in this year’s Presents Galore to be held at the Rowley Mile Racecourse, the National Horseracing Museum has been on the organising committee for several years now and the event gets better and better each year.

“The support we have received in the past has allowed the museum to invest in special projects and initiatives whilst giving us the chance to reach a wider audience over the course of the weekend. It is doubly exciting in 2022, as the event takes on wider importance by joint-fundraising with Cambridge Children’s Hospital, a long-awaited and much-needed local resource that is sure to change the lives of hundreds if not thousands of children and their families over the coming years.”

Blue Light badge holders are able to purchase a ticket for £6 (ID required at the door) and under 16s are free with an accompanying adult.
