Entertainment is provided throughout the town with the centre-piece being the realistic fighting displays
performed by the Yorkshire based 'Knights in Battle'. Many of the shopkeepers and stallholders can be seen in period costume, and a superb day is had by all. All Skipton's individual shops are open, and the famous market is in full swing, so these are also ideal days for Christmas Shopping.
