The Christmas extravaganza transforms Manchester with markets
spanning across multiple sites across the city centre, including Albert Square - overseen, as always, by the six tonne giant Santa - King Street, St Ann’s Square, Exchange Square, and the return of the family area on Cathedral Gardens, complete with ice rink and fun fair.
More than 300 traders come to the city each Christmas season - purveyors of the finest foods, drinks, arts, crafts and amazing gift ideas.
