2017’s festive season is upon us! Santa will soon be on his way!
For the next month, leading up to Christmas we’ll be sharing some fantastic ‘Northern Christmas Themed Events’ happening throughout the region this year! This is the first part of many so keep your eyes peeled on all of our social media!
Manchester Christmas Markets, Manchester
Is there a better event to start with? Perhaps the region’s most iconic and famous of them all; Manchester Christmas Market opens on 10th November. This year’s event will feature nine different zones including an ice rink and fun fair in Cathedral Gardens and the European Christmas Market in Albert Square. The market at Albert Square will open at 10AM, close at 9PM and run until 21st December.
After the year that Manchester has had it’d be great to see people flock from all over the region to support the local Manchester economy and revel in the Christmas spirit together.
