Liverpool’s St George’s Hall has Christmas all wrapped up as its festive activities begin to snowball this week.
On Friday (16 November), returning for a third year, Liverpool’s Christmas Market will officially open on St George’s Hall plateau from 5pm.
More than 40 traditional-style festive cabins dressed in garlands offering up tempting Christmas gifts including handmade jewellery, festive decorations, fleece garments, fragrances, beautiful canvases, hand-painted ceramic plates, scarves and edible gifts to make perfect stocking fillers.
Also on offer is a vast array of food and drink stalls catering to all tastes, with food on offer such as the Yorkshire wrap pancakes, mezze platters, hog roasts, salt and pepper sui mai, along with the likes of bratwurst and gourmet burgers. For those with a sweet tooth, crepes, Belgian waffles, muffins and cupcakes will be on offer.
After a successful inaugural year, the Windmill Bar makes its return and will serve traditional beers, mulled wine, hot chocolate and other festive drinks.
For younger visitors there will be a selection of vintage fairground rides to enjoy.
The market will kick-start the Hall’s ticketed Christmas activities, which include:
As well as St George’s Hall, the Town Hall is playing host to a very special guest:
Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for culture, leisure and tourism, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “Thousands enjoyed the market last year and we had really positive feedback from both visitors and traders.
“There is a wide variety of stalls selling seasonal food and drink to really get people into the festive spirit, and with the additional activities taking place inside St George’s Hall and the Town Hall there really is something for everyone.”
The markets will run until Sunday 23 December.
