GIG: U-Turn @ Rochester Christmas Market II

Getting festive at Rochester Castle

U-Turn played again to close the Rochester Christmas Market at Rochester Castle for an even more festive set! The market is set in the spectacular Rochester Castle gardens and held over 3 consecutive weekends at the end of November and beginning of December.

More than 220,000 people visit Rochester Christmas Market each year to shop in over 80 stalls, enjoy the food and drink in the Bavarian Village, step into the children’s Christmas Village with Mrs Clause and the Elves, or just enjoy the roaming performances, music and other entertainment.

We formed up with Neil, Chris, Rob, Pete B, Dan Evans and Paul Annis.
