Christmas Markets First Look: Video & Gallery

BARELY had a hog been roasted or a wine mulled before the passageways of Manchester’s Christmas Markets were swarming with people. We went for a wander to capture a snippet of the first few hours of activity on video and to give you an idea of what to expect this festive season. There's a gallery down below too. Enjoy.

There are nine Manchester Christmas Market locations:

Corn Exchange, Exchange Square, New Cathedral Street, Exchange Street, St Ann's Square, King Street, Brazennose Street, Corporation Street and Albert Square (the hub).

From Friday 15 November - Sunday 22 December

Albert Square is open seven days a week from 10am - 9pm

Other market sites: November 10am - 7.30pm (bars until 9pm), December 10am - 8pm (bars until 9pm)

FREE to visit. Download the brochure here.

I like these shots David and I agree with Peter. I know you have poetry in your mind, and I'm sure it's in your soul too. ................ Do I still owe you that drink now?

Please take my challenge, and try and do a video like the one above, at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. When its total gridlock and the number of mothers with trolly's take up more space than the stalls !
