WHERE? Manchester City Centre

WHEN? 14th November- 21st December

The UK’s original, award winning Manchester Christmas Market is set to return with the biggest and best festive offering to date.

The world-famous markets – brought to you by Manchester City Council – will feature nearly 350 stalls spanning 10 distinctive market sites, transforming the city centre in to a festive wonderland from Saturday, 14 November until Monday, 21 December.

Exchange Square is set to return with a brand new, two storey indoor beer house accompanying The Mill – a new bar area complete with huge smoking chimney as the centrepiece to the site, celebrating the industrial heritage of Manchester.

Cathedral Gardens, one of the major additions to the Christmas Markets in 2014, will return as the dedicated family area in 2015. Offering a traditional fun fair and entertainment it brings a child friendly atmosphere for young visitors wishing to experience the magic of Manchester’s Christmas Markets.

The success of Market Street – which was also new to the Christmas Markets only last year – will mean the site will be expanded with even more chalets offering top gift ideas from local retailers. Re-emerging on to the market site this year is The Corn Exchange!

The Christmas Market offers a huge range of foodie produce from the traditional favourites, such as Bratwurst, hog roast, crepes or macaroons to the more adventurous delights from across the world, such as Paella, Flammkuchen or British gourmet pie.

Each market site boasts the finest in gift ideas, including jewellery, ceramics, handmade toys, puppets, clocks, glassware, and a market favourite, the limited edition Manchester Christmas Market coffee and Gluhwein mugs.
