Father Christmas declares markets Ho-ho-ho-pen!

SANTA Claus has taken some time out of his hectic schedule to join Liverpool's Lord Mayor, on Friday, 17 November 2017 to officially open Liverpool's Christmas Market. Returning to St George's Hall, plateau for the 2nd year.  This year, the City has more than 40 traditional style festive cabins dressed in garlands, offering up tempting Christmas gifts including:- handmade jewellery, festive decorations, slippers, scarves and edible gifts to make perfect stocking fillers.

An array of food and drink stalls are selling:- bratwurst and gourmet burgers, along with crepes and cupcakes for those with a sweet tooth. New for this year is a brand new Windmill Bar which is serving:- traditional beers, mulled wine and other festive drinks.

Just before the opening, Councillor Kennedy said:- "We had a great response from both traders and visitors last year to the markets in their new home. In its location facing Lime Street Station, the festive attraction really does act as a wonderful shop window to the City's Christmas offer. Every year we try to raise the bar with whatever we do, and this year there are more stalls on offer, giving shoppers a wider selection of festive goodies to purchase. Thousands enjoyed the market last year, and I'm sure even more people will head to the plateau this year to get into the Christmas spirit. I'm looking forward to declaring the attraction officially open, and listening to the performances, particularly by the Choir With No Name, which is 1 of the charities I'm fundraising for during my time as Lord Mayor."

The markets will run, until Friday, 22 December 2017.  The market is also part of a series of Christmas events taking place at St George's Hall and Liverpool Town Hall, throughout December 2017, which will include:- Christmas Jumper Ceilidh, Snow Ball, Christmas Classics in the Concert Room and Story Time With Santa sessions.
