Durham Shopping Extravaganza

The Durham Shopping Extravaganza is an annual event, held at the Ramside Hall Hotel to raise funds for selected local charities. This year marks the 29th anniversary of this event, and will feature over 70 handpicked stalls selling fantastic local produce and gifts you wouldn't usually find on the high street.

Since they started in 1989, the event has raised over £425,000 for over 90 charities, and this year we are lucky enough to have been chosen as one of the local charities to receive support from this amazing event! The funds that go to the selected charities are raised by the stallholders who donate 10% of all their takings, and all proceeds from the event itself contribute toward their goal this year of over £25,000.

Be sure to mark this event in your diary, which will be taking place on the 4th and 5th of October 2017, so you don't miss out on a great day out with friends and family! Parking will be free and there is a £5 entry free which goes towards the selected charities.
