As well as offering the usual array of traditional handmade toys, Christmas decorations, beautiful jewellery, craft goods and fairground rides, this year’s event will for the first time see unique German wines, not available in the UK, on offer.
Visitors will also able to enjoy the delights of German mulled wine (Glühwein), grilled sausages, vegetarian food, pretzels, German beer, and for those with a sweet tooth, gingerbread, crepes and marzipan sweets.
At the heart of the market in Victoria Square, will be a traditional bandstand where musicians will perform every lunchtime and evening. Groups of local carol singers and school children will also be staging special performances throughout the festive period.
